Builder’s Merchants Sales Traineeship

Are you looking to build a career with a difference?


Do you want to train for a recognised award with Ireland’s leading Builder’s Merchant?


Grafton Merchanting ROI are proud to be launching Ireland’s first ever Builder’s Merchant Traineeship in their Chadwicks, Heiton Buckley, Davies and Panelling Centre branches.


The QQI accredited programme will be run in conjunction with the Dublin and Dun Laoghaire Education and Training Board (DDLETB).


Grafton Merchanting reached out to DDLETB earlier this year when they saw the need to create a pipeline of skilled entry level Trade Sales Advisors within their branch network.We have always had programmes for current colleagues looking to develop and progress and now the Traineeship fills a clear gap we had for entry level candidates wanting to start a career as a Trade Sales Advisor.


This can be a difficult industry to get into as Trade Sales is a highly skilled profession, so this programme will open the door for a new generation of Trade Sales Advisors. All we look for is a great attitude, all the training you can imagine will be given in everything else.


There are fantastic career opportunities available within Builders’ Merchanting, from Trade Sales to Management and all of the support functions within a branch, we are always looking for great people with the right attitude to drive our business forward!


Learners will spend half of their learning time completing classroom-based modules covering Customer Service, Retail Sales Skills, IT Skills, Health and Safety and Stock Control.


On the job learning will then take up the remainder of the course time with learners assigned to mentors in their chosen branch.


The course start date is November 5th 2018


All trainees will be job ready at the end of the course!!


Branch Locations are as follows:












Robinhood Road




Longmile Road
