These programmes help us support our people on their career paths, and in turn secure the future analysts, surveyors, carpenters, managers, and leaders of L&Q.

  • Apprenticeship and graduate programmes
    Our apprenticeship and graduate programmes are for people who aspire to a career in housing.

    These programmes can take two years to complete and during that time you'll work towards achieving a specific certification or qualification. You'll also get the opportunity to put that learning into practice on the job.

    By the end of the programme, you should be qualified and ready to 'level up' into a permanent position with us.

    The aspiring managers and emerging leaders programme is a professional qualification for our people who want to move into management or a leadership role.

    The programme takes 12-18 months to complete and helps individuals develop their management skills and leadership knowledge. It also puts them in a better position to 'level up' when the opportunity arises.
  • Coaching and mentoring
    Career pathways are not always straightforward – that's why we provide coaching and mentoring programmes to help our people navigate that journey, explore their options, set goals, and overcome barriers.
