We are delighted to announce the launch of our first graduate development programme as we look to invest in the next generation of talent and support their career development across key specialisms, including engineering, planning, geo-environment and waste resources, urban & landscape design, and transport.
We are now recruiting at all levels for two to five graduates per month. The coordinated programme aims to attract the next generation of employees via a programme of knowledge building that will allow graduates to gain a better understanding of the different skill-sets required in a global consultancy.
The programme, which runs over a 24-month period, will not only look at the strategy of WYG and how the company works, but it will also give graduates the opportunity to enhance their skills, knowledge and behaviour through a number of learning sessions around project management, leadership and commercial and business awareness.
Sue Rhodes, HR Business Partner, WYG, said: “We’re feeling positive and excited to get the graduate development programme fully up and running at WYG.
“We want to become an employer of choice for graduates in the industry and we hope that this diverse programme, that welcomes both males and females, will really help to boost our graduate community and help to attract, develop and retain the very best people.”
The graduates will undertake two project-based assignments throughout the programme where they will also be required to engage key stake holders as part of the tasks to help raise their profile in the business.
Individuals who graduated from 2012 onwards and have achieved, or are expected to achieve, a 2.2 or above in a relevant degree, can find out more about careers at WYG via: www.wyg.com/careers
