Graduate Programme Projects

What you’ll be doing

The Graduate Programme gives you the opportunity to experience every aspect of a global publisher. From the three core publishing groups – Academic, Education and Cambridge English – to the support business streams – legal, finance, HR, communications and operations – you will gain in-depth knowledge of the business. A great start to a career in international publishing!

During the 15-month programme, you will experience rotations based on a 'flexible resource pool' or 'internal consultancy' approach where business streams put forward a range of business-critical projects*. The graduates, with their manager and project bidder, decide on the most appropriate ones to work on,ensuring that each graduate receives a range of experience across the business.  You will be given real accountability to make a contribution from day one, have the opportunity to meet our customers by attending sales visits, conferences and by working in our bookshop plus you will be offered opportunities to develop your interpersonal and managerial skills.
