Degree Apprenticeships at Gist

Are you a recent school/college leaver, or are you in your last couple of years and deciding what to do next? 

If you're looking to work in a fast-paced environment, be given the opportunity to lead teams of people and receive a structured career progression path, this scheme might be for you.

Gist is looking for future leaders to join their Management Degree Apprenticeship. Over 3-4 years, the programme will see you working across a number of Gist's biggest departments including Global Freight, Business Solutions as well as at one of our local sites. You will be given management responsibility throughout the scheme, coaching from senior leaders, and a mentor to help guide you all whilst studying for a B.A. (Hons) in Leadership and Management.

A mixture of structured learning through workshops and coaching as well as on-the-job training supported by a mentor and buddy:

You will attend lectures every 6-8 weeks at Nottingham Trent University and study modules such as Managing Innovation & Change, Business Performance and People & Talent Management. You will bring the knowledge you learn from your studies into real life experience, which will quickly build your knowledge of how businesses operate and develop yourself as a leader.

Our scheme gives you a unique opportunity to kick-start your career and drive your own success in an innovative and exciting environment.
