Are you ready for a career in a world of discovery?

The university sector is one of the most innovative, vibrant and exciting environments in which to build your future career. We are currently recruiting to the Ambitious Futures graduate leadership programme where the successful candidates will gain a thorough grounding in Higher Education whilst undertaking a series of three placements across the University’s Professional Support Services, including one placement in a nearby partner University,

This cutting-edge programme will show you how the challenging and stimulating business of a university operates and is designed to provide the foundation for a Professional Services career in the HE sector.   The appointees will gain experience in key services, methods and processes, in both central support services and academic departments, and receive a sound introduction to Higher Education policy.

It's the opportunity to contribute to a life you have already experienced and enjoyed, and make a difference to the learning of future generations of students. What's more, you'll be working at the heart of fast-paced and world-leading commercial organisations that, rather unusually, are not primarily motivated by profit-making.

If you're looking for a graduate programme that leads to a highly successful and dynamic career in an entrepreneurial, global business, Ambitious Futures is it. There are two Graduate Trainee posts available from September 2018 and applications are now open.
