We are Stagecoach UK Bus, part of the wider Stagecoach Group; a FTSE250 group, and market-leaders in our field. The Graduate Programme will develop you as a future leader of a £1bn turnover, 25,000 employee business. Lots of our Graduates are now Directors and Managing Directors.
We’re looking for future leaders so you’ll need to be a great people person with bags of motivation, a positive attitude, resilience and a real zest to learn and take on this challenging but hugely rewarding role.
You’ll also need a full UK/EU driving licence by September 2019 (so if you haven’t got one yet there’s still time!), be legally entitled to work in the UK and ready for that to be at any one of our 18 regional businesses across the country.
Our 2 year graduate scheme is generalist leadership programme - we know that to be a great leader with us you’ll need really rounded experiences. With that in mind you’ll be getting stuck into operations, HR, finance, strategy...the list goes on...from day one, and with real responsibility to lead a team and make commercial decisions which have a positive impact on our business. Your day to day work will be continually underpinned with on & off the job training and leadership development
In Year 1 you’ll undertake a placement in one of our 18 business units and have exposure to leading a team and understanding how the business operates on a day to day basis. You’ll also get a buddy who’ll support and mentor you throughout the two years.
In Year 2 you’ll be able to put everything you’ve learned into practice. We’ll place you in your first official role and give you all the support you need to take you through the second stage of the programme which will incorporate continuous training and development. At the end of your two years you'll be in your own leadership role managing a large and profitable part of our business.
The important bits…
Now you know what's involved... it's time to apply and start what could be the very first step on a fantastic career journey.
