Graduate opportunities

At Rentokil Initial we operate a number of graduate programmes across all of our businesses. If you are interested in a role where every day is different and you are always meeting new people then this is a great opportunity. Within Pest Control our Graduates join the team working as a pest control technician and then they have the option to develop their career either within technical, sales or management roles. A typical day for a technician will involve visiting a number of customers and ensuring that their businesses remain pest free. If you move into a sales role you will work within a geographical area where you will be selling the pest control service and work to agreed targets. When you get promoted into management positions you will have day to day responsibility for a group of service technicians as well as dealing with our customers.

If you are prepared to work hard and rise to these challenges we will reward you both through your salary as well as providing you with excellent career development.
