Starting Your journey

At Stewart Milne Group, we believe that there is no wrong path and are proud to have a culture that has no limits on personal development. Our Chairman's a prime example, growing from an Apprentice Electrician to founder of one of the UK's largest privately-owned Housebuilding and Timber System providers.
