Graduate Trainee Management Scheme: A Talent Pipeline

Graduate Trainee Management Scheme: A Talent Pipeline

We hope you have enjoyed a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year. 2015 was a great year for Norwich Business School at the University of East Anglia and we look forward to developing new and existing relationships with businesses into 2016.

We would like to introduce you to the Graduate Trainee Management Scheme which is now in its third year. The GTMS is a free recruitment service for local organisations within the East of England area and is exclusive to our bright NBS graduates. In addition, many of our students will have had summer internships with major employers, part time jobs, competed for employability prizes or been involved in our various university societies. As you can imagine our graduates can hit the ground running and will be able to make an immediate impact with your business.

We provide a mock assessment centre experience and shortlist the most suitable candidates to participating companies. We work in partnership with our fully resourced careers service and experienced interviewers from within the business school. The final decision is down to you, the client, and if the calibre of the candidates do not meet your requirements, you are under no obligation to recruit. Successful graduate appointments are paid at market rates, circa £20,000 pro rata.

Our free service can save up to £5000 in recruitment and advertising costs and the reason we offer this is simple.  We do all the leg work leaving you to do what you do best – run your business.

For further details about GTMS and how to join our mailing list, please see the attached brochure or email us at
