"Returning to your sponsor with industry-wide experience is advantageous and allows the opportunity to move up quickly."
Graduate, Whitehaven
"The scheme allows for an extremely varied range of experiences. This can give you a good understanding of the bigger picture, which is extremely useful!"
Graduate, Bristol
"In the case of this scheme it is two years and then you move on, there is no progression. The scheme develops many skills, making you very employable afterwards."
Graduate, varied
"While on the graduate scheme there is no progression. However, following the completion of the graduate scheme there is a defined career path that can be discussed with the sponsoring organisation."
Graduate, Drigg
"This is a two-year scheme prior to starting with your sponsor company. The personal development the scheme gives you includes excellent tools for quick progression in the industry."
Graduate, Heysham
"Lots of graduate opportunities for development. Through working with others in the company, there is the option for progression or movement within the department or wider company."
Graduate, Gloucester


"There are no ranks as it is a graduate training scheme."
Midlevel, Plymouth
"I do not think that this is really applicable as the graduate scheme runs for two years, and it is only after leaving the graduate scheme and obtaining full-time employment with a sponsor or host company that you can start to progress up the career ladder."
Graduate, Glasgow
"This may vary by Sponsor Company, however the training given and the experience gained through working across several different companies is a good aid to career development."
"The first two years you are a graduate so you cannot move up. I think that later on we are quickly expected to take on management jobs within our sponsor companies."
Graduate, London
"Nucleargraduates is a graduate scheme only and so after two years you move on. However, within the nuclear industry there are lots of opportunities to progress."
Graduate, Oxfordshire


"There is an expectation of sorts to return to your sponsoring company after the scheme with the aim to become management in the future."
"Permanent roles at sponsor companies are nearly 100% guaranteed."
Graduate, Derby
"Prospects with the NDA (Nuclear Decommissioning Authority) aren't great. However what you learn and see there should help you an awful lot in your other secondments and it definitely opens doors. If you want a guaranteed job, choose another sponsor company and don't do anything daft."
Graduate, Warrington
"By moving to different companies we are exposed to hundreds of people where you can create contacts to work wherever you want. We also meet people in powerful positions that will always offer you a place to work with them."
Graduate, Seascale
"Sponsor companies almost always offer a substantive role on completion of the scheme."
Graduate, Derby
