We have a great diverse group of graduates, with a wide variety of university degrees, and experiences to bring fresh thoughts and ideas into our business. See what they have to say here.
Our three-year rotational graduate programme is not just about learning how to do a job, but also about ensuring our graduates are equipped with the skills and tools they need to become future business leaders. As a graduate on our programme, you will be exposed to all kinds of projects, and stakeholders, by working across four rotations in different business areas. One of these will be a front-line operational placement, to enable you to get a true understanding of our services and how these impact our customers. Each of these rotations will come with their own learning opportunities to develop your personal and leadership skills, which is an incredible stepping stone into a permanent role at the end of the programme, and a great launchpad into your career.
We look for more than just a degree. You’ll need real motivation and the ability to work in an ever-changing environment. You’ll be curious, adaptable, unfazed by ambiguity, collaborative, analytical, commercially aware, and most of all – you’ll be someone who could bring out the best in the people around you.
You’ll have a talent for spotting how to make things better, and for rolling up your sleeves to do just that. And you’ll need to be passionate and self-motivated too, so you can work with us to accelerate your career.
