Graduates will work across Wheatley’s social housing and property-management subsidiaries, including Dumfries and Galloway Housing Partnership (DGHP), Glasgow Housing Association, Dunedin Canmore and West Lothian Housing Partnership.

Lesley Wilkinson, Wheatley Director of Employee Relations, said: “The Ignite programme is one of the best opportunities in Scotland for bright and passionate graduates to build on their academic achievements and develop a career they can be proud of.

“Our housing graduates will play a vital role in the heart of Wheatley communities, making a real difference to people’s lives and helping transform neighbourhoods.”

Sophie, 23, graduated with a degree in International Business Management and is now enjoying working at DGHP on the graduate programme.

Sophie said: “Wheatley offers a combination of a business mind, allowing me to use my degree, with a social heart which is exactly what inspires me to want a career in housing.

“There’s nothing better than the feeling you get when know you have had a positive impact on someone’s day.”

Applicants for Wheatley Group’s Ignite graduate programme must apply by 10 March 2021.
