Experience and rotations
Our graduates initially start within the HR operations space, then experience rotations in the centre of excellence (e.g. talent, leadership development, reward) and HR embedded areas. Our graduates are also encouraged to carry out a 'breadth' rotation outside of HR to further understand a different area of the business.
It's our aim to enhance your early career development through diverse experiences that will put you on the path for a future HR leadership role. We aim to stretch and challenge our graduates as much as possible, but also offer support via formal learning, coaching and mentoring.
