As a Graduate Fellow, you’ll be an important part of the Informa team from day one.

Informa is listed on London Stock Exchange and a member of FTSE 100, with over 11,000 colleagues working in more than 30 countries.

About the Informa Graduate Fellowship Scheme:

We live and breathe the subjects we work in. Join Informa for the opportunity to work with some of the world’s most exciting brands and to develop a specialism of your own.

The range of professional opportunities and freedom to tailor your career means that you will be equipped to reach your full potential.

Informa’s Graduate Fellowship Scheme offers five placements across the business over the course of two years, with one placement spent outside of Europe.
