WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING
This is a wide-ranging programme. You’ll learn about everything from resourcing and talent management, organisation development, employment law and employee relations, to bid and contract support, and project management. You’ll see how we work closely with the business to create the strategies that find and retain the best people and develop the skills our business needs. Project by project, you’ll learn how to support different disciplines in different parts of our business.
WHAT YOU’LL GET OUT OF IT
Once you have sight of the big picture, you’ll have a much better idea of what you want to do with your career. We can help you figure that out and provide you with all the support you need to achieve professional status, such as with the CIPD. And while you work towards that, you’ll enjoy a competitive starting salary of £29k - £31k.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
You’ll need a 2:2 (Hons) degree in Business Management, Law, Psychology or another relevant subject. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).
In addition to the above requirements, in our Aviation sector the graduate programme spans across a number of UK and international contracts, therefore, multilingual skills and international experience are hugely valuable to us. Alongside our UK-based graduates, we are actively looking for candidates that are flexible and willing to undertake international placements and use their existing language skills to add value to our sector. Being able to work with and amongst different cultures and backgrounds is vitally important within our organisation, so please ensure that any language or international experience is highlighted within your CV and application form.
