Job description

Loughborough Graduate Management Trainee Scheme

Full-time, fixed term until September 2027

This is an exciting paid three-year graduate scheme for new or recent graduates of Loughborough University, or existing employees of the University who meet the criteria. It is designed to develop individuals for roles in higher education leadership and management.

The Loughborough Graduate Management Trainee Scheme could be for you if:

  • You are passionate about higher education and the impact it makes in society;
  • You are interested in a career in a dynamic and diverse organisation that has a mission to advance and disseminate knowledge for public good;
  • You are intelligent, hard-working, articulate and collegiate in style;
  • You are motivated to complete a paid Graduate Management Trainee Scheme at a top-ten University and are passionate about Loughborough University.
  • Over the three-year period our employed Graduate Management Trainees will complete a range of placements across various University departments, working closely with schools and having access to the most senior leaders of the University.

    Graduates will engage with tailored development activities and will have access to mentors for support. The placements and development activities are designed to inspire and stretch trainees to reach their potential helping to build upon our reputation as a top ten university. Upon completion of the scheme, trainees will be well-suited to apply for management roles at Loughborough or other universities.

    The Loughborough Graduate Management Trainee Scheme could be for you. If you are an ambitious individual who meets the criteria, and you have an interest in working in higher education and for Loughborough University. If this is you – apply now!

    This vacancy is available to new and recent Loughborough graduates (2022 onwards) and existing members of staff.

    Applicants graduating from, or who have recently obtained Masters and PhD qualifications will also be considered. Existing employees of the University, who have graduated (not necessarily from Loughborough), may also be considered if they meet the criteria.

    Please note - the Government recently announced a number of plans to change the existing UK visa regulations which are expected to be introduced in spring 2024, including an increase to the Skilled Worker salary threshold. The detail supporting the changes has not yet been published and we are therefore unable to confirm at this stage whether the Graduate Management Trainee role is sponsorable or not.
