Volunteer graduate joins Barratt North Scotland team
Victoria Gray has become the latest graduate to join the Barratt North Scotland team as the company continues to bring new talent to the construction industry.
Victoria, 22, who is originally from Renfrewshire but now lives in Aberdeen, will be working alongside the construction team at the Osprey Heights development in Inverurie. With a degree in Architectural Technology from Robert Gordon University and experience in the construction industry at a local and international level, Victoria brings both talent and passion to the team.
Speaking of her new role, Victoria said: “I have always been keen to work in the construction industry and what better way to start than with the UK’s largest housebuilder.
“I first experienced the house building industry in 2011 when I volunteered in southern India providing construction support for an orphanage. I have since gone on to complete my degree and complete placements at a range of building service companies.
“Although I’m sure there is a lot to learn, I can’t wait to start my new role at Osprey Heights. I look forward to contributing to the growing success of Barratt North Scotland over the coming months and years.”
Douglas McLeod, regional director for Barratt Scotland, added: “Given the ongoing success of our north and north east developments, and our continuing investment in new sites across the region, we’re delighted to grow our team by recruiting new talent who we can develop through our graduate and apprenticeship schemes.
“Having enjoyed over 40 years in the industry, I know that construction can offer a rewarding and interesting career path. I wish our new recruits all the best in their new posts.”
