What is the Sanctuary Group Graduate Development Programme?

Our two year Graduate Development Programme is based at our Worcester offices. Completing up to four six-month rotational placements, you will develop your commercial skills whilst making an active contribution to the development of our organisation. Placements will be in any one of our core business areas - Affordable Housing, Sanctuary Care, Commercial, Development, or Corporate Services. Each placement will see you undertaking work that will have a measurable impact on the business.

We are very proud of our programme and the accelerated development opportunities it offers. Upon successful completion of the programme, our Graduates can typically expect to move into senior roles with increased remuneration packages. We therefore enjoy considerably higher retention rates when compared to other graduate schemes.

Graduating in any degree subject, you will be in your final year of study, or have finished your studies within the past three years, and you will need a 2:1 degree as a minimum.

Your personal skills will be just as important as your qualifications. Determined and focused, you will be a natural at building relationships and inspiring others. You'll also need to be adaptable, show initiative, have strong problem solving skills and have confidence in your own ability. Above all, you'll have the commercial aptitude and desire to take us forward.

What can we offer you in return?

As part of our commitment to making Sanctuary a great place to work, we offer extensive development and training opportunities as well as a comprehensive reward and benefits package:

    A generous contributory pension scheme (the company will match employee contributions up to 7% of salary) 25 days annual leave (rising to 30 days) plus public holidays Voluntary Private Medical Scheme (employee funded) Life assurance of 3 times final salary paid in the event of death in service Personal advice and counselling services On site restaurant and gym facilities Family friendly arrangements Tax efficient benefits such as cycle to work schemes and child care vouchers A comprehensive employee benefits package through MyRewards.

A robust selection process follows for those that submit a successful application form, starting with an initial interview at the end of January 2018 and for successful candidates an assessment centre at our Worcester offices which will be held on 28th February and 1st March. Successful candidates will start on the programme in September 2018.
