Business Graduate Programme - London

The Opportunity

The Business Graduate Programme provides a flow of entry level talent into areas such as Product Development, Customer Proposition, Strategy and Business Development, and Strategic Customer Accounts throughout our business. It targets recent graduates from across the globe for an 18-month programme which provides analyst level job rotations, on the job coaching from carefully chosen managers and the Early Careers team, self-managed career development, job based training, leadership skill development and an opportunity to gain visibility to many different areas of the business in roles that are global in scope.

The programme consists of two 9-month rotations within your chosen career path and a robust 8 week business challenge. This highly tailored approach allows you to build a career that is tailored to your interests. No matter what you choose, you will have the opportunity to learn in an environment that celebrates performance and views diversity of ideas, backgrounds and cultures as a valuable business asset. The scope and scale of the business will enable you to take your career in an amazing array of directions limited only by your own initiative, talents and goals in a career without boundaries.

As part of a wider global early careers community you will network and work with individuals across multiple time zones and geographies. A strong alumni network, mentoring programmes, ongoing feedback, and structured development sessions will enable you to collaborate in your learning and broaden your perspective.

What we’re looking for

We look for high-calibre undergraduates and recent graduates with some work experience, who can make an impact in a fast-changing global organization. Our programme celebrates diversity of thought, backgrounds, and of work experiences. Although we are primarily a programme for recent graduates, we welcome applications from individuals who have already started their first job and are looking to make a change and move into the one of various sectors that Thomson Reuters serve. Individuals with masters degrees but minimal work experience are also an ideal fit for our programme. In addition to this background, we look for highly adaptable individuals who thrive on feedback. A natural self-starter who optimizes the opportunities presented, flexes easily, and sees the power of a global enterprise as an asset also tends to thrive in our programme.
