One of our core company values is to empower our employees and by providing personal development at all levels throughout the business we entrust our employees to apply their learning in to the workplace. Structured learning and development and an opportunity to blend both on-the-job and off-the-job learning enables our trainees to increase their knowledge, achieve new qualifications and put the theory in to practice within their role.

There are many examples of trainee successes throughout the business and working at BGEN makes you realise just how many of our employees started their career here as a trainee and have continued to grow by taking the opportunity to develop their career to the next level.

This could be an opportunity to develop from an electrical Adult Trainee to an Electrician or an opportunity to transfer your skills from our panel shop to the office and become an Electrical Applications Engineer or even consider making a move from a craft role to that of an Estimating Engineer, QS or Project Manager.

Wherever your skills lie, we can offer you the opportunity to achieve the next step of your career progression.

One thing to mention is how helpful and supportive all the other engineers are in the office and their willingness to take time out of their day to support me so that I can progress further on my project.

Joel Collins, Network engineer

Throughout my career with BGEN I have had the opportunity to work with very experienced and technically minded people. These people have helped me in every step of my journey so far and I wouldn’t have been able to do what I do today without any of them.

Robbie Stanley, Electrical designer
