Barbon’s Development Programmes
Barbon Graduate Development Programme
People are our greatest assets; and that’s why choosing the right people and investing in their development is so important. If you do join us as a graduate, you’ll find yourself part of a friendly team working towards the future success of an exciting and expanding business.
Our Graduate Development Programme will enable you to develop within your particular area of expertise.
What you’ll be doing
Each of our Graduate Development Programmes are different, as we tailor the content to meet your specific needs. But, broadly speaking, you’ll spend some time in placements around the business building up your knowledge and understanding what makes us tick.
This will be undertaken together with some specific placements within key areas of the department you’re assigned to, to help build up your specialist knowledge.
As part of your training, you’ll be challenged to work on specific business projects and you’ll also be involved in an off-the-job training programme, designed to develop your key competencies, knowledge and skills. Throughout the programme you’ll be sponsored by a mentor and supported, where appropriate, towards attaining relevant professional qualifications. Once you’ve completed your training, you’ll be able to take up a position at Barbon within your area of expertise
How to apply
If you’d like to apply for the chance to join the programme, please email a CV and covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org:
• explaining what you’ve learned through your degree and how it’s relevant to this application
• describing the qualities that you feel you can bring to our team and how they’ll benefit Barbon
