Graduate Development

The best graduates want to progress their careers and expect employers to invest their development. Investing in good people is important but so is getting a return on your investment. A carefully planned graduate development programme is the answer.

Discovery Graduates, have over 15 years experience developing graduates through innovative training, coaching and mentoring programmes.
According to the 2014 AGR Summer Review, almost one third of graduates leave their posts due to dissatisfaction with their career development.
Our clients understand that recruiting the best candidates and giving them the right tools to do the job is only the beginning. Graduates may possess the raw skills and right attitude, but they need to be nurtured and developed in order to become truly valuable employees who will stay with your organisation.
