We tend to take on around 40 graduates a year on our permanent schemes – we like to keep our intake to a number which allows our graduates plenty of support, responsibility and lots of exposure to the business.
Whether you join us on a graduate scheme, a summer internship or a year in industry, you’ll receive a competitive salary which is regularly benchmarked against our competitors and a range of brilliant benefits. The salary is also reviewed at six month intervals throughout the scheme.
This will depend on your graduate scheme. We have over 20 office locations in the UK with our Head Office being in Guildford. Depending on the scheme you are interested in, we will be able to let you know which office locations are in scope. For the AMT scheme we are expecting flexibility across all of our locations across the UK as these placements are essential for you to get a good overview of our business.
We are mindful of the communities around us and our obligation and ability to make a positive contribution to society and the environment. We feel practising diversity and inclusiveness is a key competitive factor, which will ensure that we have the best people in the right job based on merit, aptitude and ability regardless of their background or personal circumstances.
