All graduate trainees undertake a structured induction at the beginning of the graduate programme, are allocated hands-on responsibilities in their respective placements, begin studying for professional qualifications and are supported by an experienced line manager and a senior manager from the function as a mentor.
The graduate finance programme runs for a period of three years, inclusive of preparations for CIMA credentialing and placement within one of three divisions—Costa Coffee, Premier Inn Hotels and Restaurants and Corporate Finance. Within the chosen division, trainees complete placements across the finance function, completing assigned day-to-day activities to gain practical experience.
Other off-the-job training ensures a thorough foundation in financial and accounting principles, standards, regulatory requirements and procedures. Successful graduate trainees can expect to move up the corporate ladder within three years of completing the programme.
The H.R. scheme is designed as a structured rotation through several placements in employment policy, employee relations and engagement, resourcing, rewards and talent management, and learning and development. Study and training for the graduate CIPD qualifications and membership is facilitated through in-house and external programmes, conducted in partnership with and by local colleges.
