We’re often asked ‘what’s a graduate training scheme’ or ‘how do I apply for a graduate training scheme, and is it too late?’
A graduate training scheme is full-time employment with a major company once you graduate, offering structured management/professional training and development . Schemes usually last between one and two years and may be business or finance-related, HR, IT, engineering, marketing etc. The company may help you with training and support towards your chosen professional body’s recognised qualifications – eg chartered engineer status or professional membership of CIPD for the HR profession.
If you’re a final year or postgraduate student, you can find schemes and graduate jobs advertised on the PCC website, and you can sign up to receive email alerts. Also, register with prospects.ac.ukand targetjobs.co.uk to receive job alerts.
Come in and see us if you want more help in applying for these schemes or want to know more about them.
