The Programme

The University of Warwick Graduate Management Training programme offers an 18 month training contract with dedicated support and external placements.

In a constantly evolving and challenging sector, we take the development of high-quality future leaders very seriously. That's why our Ambitious Futures programme will invest in your career development, expose you to a range of interesting business areas and work cultures - and ultimately enable you to become one of the industry's most influential senior figures.

A rotational programme based around you

The opportunity to experience different universities and work areas will be invaluable to your development. It opens up new avenues of potential career paths and demonstrates that a career in this industry is not only interesting and varied but can be almost anything you want it to be.

You'll be employed by the University of Warwick and will take part in an 18-month programme split into three placements. The first and last of these will be based at Warwick, while the middle placement will take you to a different partner institution.

The type of work you'll be involved in will be project-based and wide-ranging, offering many diverse and challenging opportunities. We aim for you to complete a variety of different projects in a fairly short space of time, and in many cases, you will be able to see the results of your work being implemented across the university.

Building your networks

Our current trainees will tell you how much they've enjoyed and valued the opportunity to network with fellow graduates. Throughout the programme, you'll be brought together in clusters for group coaching sessions, and as a whole group for your eLAMP end of module workshops. It's an informal opportunity to share your experiences and learn about the career ambitions of your peers, as you move forward together into an exciting new future.
