"There's a clear pathway and numerous examples of how people progress at different rates within the business sectors. With enough work, you could be an operations manager responsible for ten team managers and 100 employees within two years of completing the grad scheme."
Graduate, Thatcham
"There are lots of promotion possibilities within the organisation and a very good attitude towards succession planning within the business. This of course assumes that individuals are mobile and willing to move for these opportunities."
HR, Graduate, Newbury
"I am on a three-year graduate scheme and there are two major reviews each year in which you have a chance to talk about your performance. I think the promotion possibilities could sometimes be a bit clearer but I do know that you can go up each year on the graduate scheme depending on your abilities and drive etc."
Graduate, Chineham, Basingstoke.
"Your opportunities for advancement within Gist are limited only by how fast you can take on additional responsibilities."
Graduate, Thatcham
"The promotion possibilities are very high so long as you're flexible about your location."
Graduate, Barnsley


"It's easy to move up through the organisation if you are willing to be flexible in terms of location and can demonstrate that you are driven towards more senior management roles."
Graduate, Crewe
"Drive, dedication and passion will lead to progression within the organisation. It is there if you want it."
Mid level, Stone
"Within the few years of the graduate scheme, progression is pretty linear and set in place but not guaranteed within the planned timeframe. If you work hard, you're sure to progress but it has been noted that those who completed their placement year with the company are more likely to progress at a faster rate."
Graduate, Prefer not to say
