Brilliant thinking!

They say university is an experience like no other. Employers want to build on your experiences and help develop you further. They want the best - analytical, articulate, technically gifted and commercially sharp individuals with a clear end goal.  

As a graduate you will bring fresh thinking, new perspectives and enthusiasm to a sector vital to UK infrastructure. It's a fast paced and dynamic environment and employers are focused on developing new technologies to meet future needs. You will have real responsibility and an opportunity to make an impact from day one – putting the power to supercharge your career in your hands. 

The breadth and diversity of roles may surprise you! So whether your passion is in engineering, cyber security, commercial operations, human resources, sales, marketing, project management or another specialism it is likely that you will find a graduate programme to suit your skills. And, if your aspiration is to work overseas, many employers have programmes with an international focus.

Work your way to the top!

A graduate scheme is a fantastic way to kick off your career and an exciting opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge you’ll need to progress to a senior role or long-term career within your chosen specialism. Employer programmes will have different entry requirements - the majority of employers in our sector ask for a minimum Bachelors degree at a 2.2 or above. It is usual for a graduate to spend between 18 months and 3 years undertaking various placements to provide an insight into the different areas of a business and a great foundation in general management. You'll be part of a sector that's innovative and inclusive. Employers in our network value diverse points of view and also ensure that their graduates benefit from exceptional learning and development opportunities.
