What will the programme involve?
The three-year, world-class development programme is packed with variety and challenge, with the opportunity of promotion to manager level after 3 years. You’ll develop your individual leadership skills by working on live projects which offer you all the experience you need to become ready for your first management role. Over three years, the scheme will give you a broad exposure to the business. You can be end-to-end responsible to deliver a great employee experience for key employee moments as part of the People Experience team, join one or our Expertise and Innovation teams (Employer Brand, Future of Work, Reward, Talent, Leaning and Organization) or Business Partnering one of our business units or national functions.
Support and empowerment: We will support you every step of the way to senior management but much of your progress will be up to you. You will need to be focused and ambitious to get where you want, identifying opportunities and taking responsibility for your own development.
During the 3 years of your programme, you will be learning and developing in the rotations you will be doing, having real responsibility and impact. This development is supported with a learning roadmap full of internal and external training focused on developing your individual leadership skills.
We have an established tradition of developing our own purpose driven leaders and encourage innovative thinking.
