Most large companies employing graduates have graduate training programmes in place. These serve as a valuable bridge between university and working life. Companies tend to invest thousands in recruiting graduates who have demonstrated impressive academic ability but who have little or no experience in the world of work. 

Graduate training programmes ease candidates into the world of work and give them the skills necessary to become part of the larger team. They tend to last either one or two years. Some will offer students the opportunity to experience several different areas of business before choosing a final career path within the company. Employers’ websites and/or recruitment brochures give details of these.

Graduate training programmes have long been popular with banks, insurance companies and financial institutions but they have become increasingly more common with employers across all sectors, particularly the IT and technical spheres. 

Advantages include:

A good level of support when starting your career

Training and development opportunities

A mentor to talk through any problems

The opportunity to study for a professional qualification (normally funded by your employer)

The chance to rotate through different departments and gain experience of different functions.

BELOW IS A LIST OF AVAILABLE graduate training OPPORTUNITIES
