About the role
Our University believes that equality, diversity and inclusion is integral to a successful modern workplace. Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Strategy sets out our approach to equality, diversity and inclusion; a public declaration of our commitment to develop a community that is fully inclusive, recruiting and retaining staff and students from all sectors of society.
 
A key strategic objective is to attract, retain, develop and support an excellent diverse staff population. We are well aware that our staff community do not reflect the students we serve.
 
To that end, we are proud to launch our Graduate Management Trainee Scheme. Aimed at recruiting from our talented student base, we are looking to use this initiative to support in diversifying our workforce.
 
This is a Positive Action initiative aimed to increase currently underrepresented groups in our workforce and therefore we would specifically welcome applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic graduates. 
 
Trainees will receive a competitive salary, study for an apprenticeship as part of a bespoke learning and development programme; receive mentoring from senior leaders at the University and work on projects across professional services that will help shape the future direction of the University.
 
Become a Citizen of Change on our Graduate Management Trainee Scheme.
