We understand full well the myriad benefits and risks involved with graduates and ‘Early in Career’ talent. They bring with them new ideas and offer new ways of working which can transform a business’ future. This potential for transformation makes an effective graduate development programme critical when nurturing talent for the long-term.
Early in Career talent
So for exactly this reason we work closely with organisations to develop ‘Early in Career’ talent. We cultivate the potential that exists, helping graduates learn relevant skills and nurture the essential behaviours that enable them to flourish.
Doing things differently
We know ‘Early in Career’ talent challenge the status quo, often appearing to want to break the rules.
In some environments this may be fine, in others, not so. Graduates bring enthusiasm and fresh ideas but often lack essential business skills such as commercial awareness and key interpersonal skills such as communication and relationship building.
These skills and behaviours are the foundations upon which strong leadership and management is built.
To acquire these skills and behaviours, graduates require specific support and challenge in their transition from student to suit.
Some of the modules we deliver:
- Transitioning from full-time education
- Commercial awareness
- Collaborating with others
- Working in a high performing environment
- Developing emotional intelligence
I have been greatly impressed with Chris’ input on the training and development front and in leading some very successful programmes for graduates employed by clients. Chris has also been instrumental in developing some important client relationships and supporting those organisations through recruitment and change programmes.Richard Boot OBE DLManaging Partner & Chairman at IRC UK Global Executive Search Partners
