Graduate Scheme Employers

Helping to build and develop your team

Information about the scheme

The Procurement Graduate Training Scheme is an excellent way to introduce a new member to your team. The Skills Development network will advertise the programme and interview initial candidates, ensuring those who attend the assessment centre are the best for the role, saving you valuable time and money. You create a role which is specific to your needs and we will provide you with a graduate with the determination to learn and succeed.  Some graduates may come into the role having little knowledge of procurement, but through a thorough induction, studying for the CIPS level 4 diploma and learning in an environment which enables you and your team to shape the graduate, they will learn the valuable processes specific to NHS procurement.

Some key points

“My experience with the graduate scheme and the whole process has been very positive. SDN spent a lot of time pre assessment day, organising interviews and shortlisting helping organisations find the ideal candidates. By the time it got to the assessment day, the remaining candidates were all excellent.”
