Gradunique, a finalist for Graduate Scheme of the Year in 2017, brings together two of the UK’s leading organisations to deliver a truly unique two year graduate scheme for aspiring leaders.Gradunique offers the opportunity to experience a range of functions and departments via four six-month placements. Where Gradunique differs from other schemes is that these placements take place across two major national organisations.

You will work in a variety of teams across each organisation. These could include areas such as income generation, campaigning and influencing, or business strategy and support services. You’ll be assigned a range of short and long term projects, taking ownership on some, supporting on others.


Throughout your time on the programme, you’ll be fully supported, with a clear development programme. In addition to learning on the job, you will have a mentor and will attend quarterly action learning style events with your fellow graduate peers. You will also attend more formal learning events such as face-to-face workshops and have opportunities to play an active role in high profile events to grow your skills, knowledge and networks. At the conclusion of the two year programme, we hope you will choose to continue your career with one of the sponsoring organisations.

The programme isn’t a theoretical training exercise: you will be expected to make a real impact on major national projects across the organisations whilst you’re developing your communication, team working, leadership and project management skills.

We’re seeking outstanding, talented and ambitious graduates to join us for this fantastic partnership. In addition to your 2(1) or better degree, you’ll be self-motivated, team-oriented, possess a hunger to learn and a appetite for real responsibility.
