“Combat to Construction” Traineeship

The Combat to Construction Traineeship is a Persimmon Homes initiative which enables service leavers to re-train into a rewarding second career within the house building industry. They will train and employ you, commit to pay you a living wage during your training, which will lead to a recognised qualification and above all, a fulfilling and rewarding career with the Company.

Through Combat to Construction, an NVQ Level 2 trade training programme supports you to make the transition from the military into house building. The skills and experience of many service leavers are highly comparable with those required to work within construction. The Combat to Construction Traineeship builds on those skills to help you start a rewarding new career with Persimmon.
