Human Resources

Attract and retaining our talent
Around £27,500 starting salary + £1,500 welcome bonus
24 months
UK based (mainly Midlands) with an international placement

It takes the talents of 12,000 people to do what we do. Looking after them is complicated work. With this HR scheme, you’ll find out exactly what it takes to keep our workforce motivated and engaged – as well as how we attract new talent.

What you'll do

You'll do four placements over 24 months. Spending time in areas such as Employee Relations, Reward, Talent and Learning & Development, you’ll quickly acquire the skills and experiences needed to become an accomplished HR generalist. You’ll also get an insight into the complexities of looking after our workforce – which is large, unionised and spread over multiple sites.
It's a brilliant way to put everything you've learned into practice, while working your way towards your CIPD qualification. And to give you international exposure, you’ll also have the chance to do a placement overseas. 

What you'll need to bring

We’re looking for high-calibre graduates with at least a 2:1 (or equivalent) in HR, Business or Psychology. Qualifications aside, you'll need a passion for developing talent and delivering value through people. You’ll also need the ability to adapt to any situation, a willingness to travel abroad, and, ideally, the ability to speak a second language. Your ability to work well with others goes without saying.
