We value and invest in our staff so they can grow and develop to be the best they can at what they do. Find out more below about what we offer our people and how we work in partnership with education providers to find new talent.

Learning & Development

We have a dedicated Learning & Development Team who work specifically with our people to encourage them to perform to the best of their ability and create new opportunities.

We identify and nurture our talent for the future, offering an in-house Leadership Development Programme. Through individual and group tasks over a 12-week period, the course develops key leadership skills including in the Flagship Way. Our internal Talent Management Programme is another excellent way for us to identify and retain talent. 

We have a comprehensive induction which provides an excellent overview of Flagship, allowing all new staff to gain a valuable insight into all areas of the business.

Our very own Bright Futures Programme is a fantastic opportunity for our people to achieve a diploma or a degree while carrying out their current role.

In addition, our L&D Team offer professional courses and training, role specific training, safeguarding training, and accredited training such as Health & Safety and First Aid.

Work experience

As part of our commitment to provide opportunities for young people, we have designed our work experience programme to engage the talent of the future.

During a week at Flagship, a student will:

  • Experience traditional business functions, building a knowledge of central support services including Finance and HR.
  • Spend time in the workplace to understand the varied aspects of the housing sector

The week is structured to enable an individual to have exposure to all areas of the business, and then to spend a day within a chosen function, to develop their knowledge to support their career aspirations.
