CASE STUDIES

Vicky, Operations Management Graduate

Vicky, Operations Management Graduate
"From the day one of the Graduate scheme you're given lots of responsibility. The support given to you by the Early Talent team, your peers and your mentors is invaluable and they're able to guide you at every step of the way. Equally you're given plenty of opportunity to make your mistakes and learn from them - ultimately supporting your development."

Vicky - Operations Management Graduate

Reade, Operations Management Graduate
"The broad experience I have gained has surpassed my expectations and is something I have truly relished. My daily role sees me manage a team of up to 40 people. Being a 20 year old student, this helped me to quickly and efficiently develop new skills and helped mould me into the confident manager I am today.
