What do our BA Graduates enjoy?
“One aspect of my time as a BA Graduate that I’ve enjoyed most has been the variety of work and development opportunities available throughout the rotations. No two days are the same and you are offered the chance to work on a variety of initiatives and projects to help understand where your interests lie, develop skills in areas you may have not been exposed to before, and widen your network from working with different people across the business”
“One of the highlights of my time as a BA Graduate is the fantastic BA community that is present throughout the business. Regular meetings, events, and support is provided from all BAs within the company which gives the role a real 'family' feel, and there is always a friendly face willing to share experiences or to give a helping hand. This has not only been a lot of fun meeting the community, but also helped me to develop as a BA during my time on the graduate scheme”.
