Fancy starting your graduate career in a market-leading FTSE business?

What if we told you that we can develop you as a future leader of a £1.8bn turnover, 25,000 employee business? Sounds good, right?

The Stagecoach Graduate Leadership Programme is a two year graduate scheme, because we know that to be a great leader you’ll need really rounded experience.

That’s why you’ll have the opportunity to get stuck into our business from day one... into operations, people, finance, marketing… the list goes on!

You’ll have real responsibility to lead a team and make commercial decisions impacting positively on our business at both local and national level.

Of course we won’t throw you in at the deep end without full support... a buddy, a mentor, great managers, internal training, external courses… you can count on us to give you everything you’ll need. And yes, if you want to, we’ll teach you how to drive a bus.

Throughout the programme you’ll have exposure to our senior leaders including at breakfast meetings, dinners, lunch-and-learn sessions, site visits and meetings.

And at the end of the programme we’ll guarantee you a role in our business. Interestingly, five of our current MDs and 36 of our functional directors are former graduates... and you could well be adding to this amazing tally!

About us…

Transport is at the heart of a strong economy, a strong society, a strong environment and a strong community...  and we’re at the very heart of the transport industry.

Stagecoach, one of the UK’s biggest and best transport businesses, has a privileged role in connecting individuals and communities across the UK to healthcare, to employment, to education, to leisure... and most importantly to each other.

With around 25,000 colleagues we have operations throughout the UK, and every year we provide travel services to 1 billion customers across over 100 major towns and cities.

Our values are built around growth and sustainability because it is right for our business, our customers, our people and our planet.

About our offer…

You’ll start on an initial salary of £26k, rising to £28k in your second year. There’s 25 days’ holiday plus bank holidays, a contributory pension scheme and life assurance, discount on retail and leisure outlets...  and not forgetting free travel on Stagecoach buses!

About you…

We’re looking for future leaders, so you’ll be a great people-person with bags of motivation and a positive attitude.

You’ll also need a 2:2 degree or above in any discipline by September 2020, a full UK/EU driving licence by September 2020 (so if you haven’t got one there’s still time!), to be legally entitled to work full-time  in the UK and be ready to join one of our operating business units.

Our programme is hugely rewarding and thus, as you’d expect, challenging...  so you’ll need a good level of personal resilience and a real zest for learning.
