Their successful location in Dundee is looking for a business-minded Graduate Trainee to join their team. Working within a fast-paced environment you will embark on a professional development and graduate training programme whilst providing clients with great service.

You will receive a basic starting salary of £19,000 - 20,000 (depending on experience and increased as you progress), plus:

  • A lucrative and uncapped bonus
  • Progression to a key role within the business (with salary reviews as you progress)

The Role

At the beginning of the graduate programme, you will:

  • build strong relationships with prospective and existing B2B clients and you will continue to have more impact so you can progress to a key role.
  • get involved in the marketing of the business - developing marketing campaigns for the company through social media, promotional events, print and the company website.

To ensure your success in the role you will receive bespoke mentoring and training from the successful manager of the company's Dundee location. If you prove yourself, you will also have the chance to progress. You will gain autonomy and have a much higher earning potential.
