You’ll get the opportunity to virtually interact with other students and participate in workshops to develop some of the key skills you’ll need to thrive - meeting colleagues from across the business along the way.

Your future is every bit as important to us as it is to you - that’s why our aim is to provide you with meaningful experiences that last a lifetime.

  • We are looking for someone who can spot new opportunities and has the initiative and resilience to make the most of them.
Training and Development:

As the Discovery programme isn't that long, your focus will be to make sure every second of the experience counts.
