Job description

We’re a large business with a wide range of projects and challenges. You’ll undertake a cycle of placements during your programme. Each placement will be structured to expose you to a variety of roles and perspectives within the UK business, allowing you the opportunity to work closely with our senior management; engaging in real-life business projects and challenges.

Where you can join us
You can find out more about the areas of our business offering places on the Business Management programme for Autumn 2017 on our website. But, no matter which team you join, you could be based anywhere in the UK. That’s why we ask all our graduates to be flexible and willing to move during their programme.

What you'll be doing
What you do will vary according to which placement you’re on. The one constant, however, is being given a clear project and deliverable so you can demonstrate what you’ve achieved. Identifying and achieving project and business goals; taking ownership of tasks and projects; ensuring your work is peer reviewed; and seeking out development opportunities will all be part and parcel of your role. We’ll also expect you to focus on finding better ways of doing things and continuously improve your technical competence.

What you'll get out of it
The benefit of working alongside senior management; the opportunity to develop your project and operational management capabilities; mentoring; learning how to network in large organisation – and much more besides – are all on offer here. You’ll also get the chance to supplement your on-the-job experience with key learning modules to make you the perfect all-round package.

Applications for this programme are currently open. To avoid disappointment we recommend that you apply sooner rather than later as we work on a rolling basis and where we experience large volumes of applications, we will close the role early.

Company information

You’ll need at least a 2:1 first degree in a relevant business subject and be ready to apply and develop your knowledge in a broader business management environment. We’ll also be looking for the ability to analyse problems and create solutions, together with strong relationship-building skills and a proactive, hands-on approach. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).
