By joining our business graduate scheme, you’ll work closely with the people who are driving the business forward. The scheme will support the development of your skills, knowledge and experience, and will help you become an expert in your own field.

Each placement will have real responsibility, a personal mentor and support for professional qualifications to get your career off to a great start.

You will have the opportunity to work on live projects/contracts and to learn from a host of experienced and talented managers. Our programme recognises the importance of giving meaningful and challenging work, so you can expect to be immersed in real activities and given responsibilities from the outset. At the end of each placement, you will select, in consultation with HR, a business area in which to undertake your next placement and develop your career in-line with your personal career aspirations.
