"Being able to be part of three different teams before graduating lets you develop all the skills you need to hit the ground running in whatever you decide your permanent role will be in the future. You’re introduced to all the different departments within the company, meaning you’ll be able to make an informed decision before deciding where to rotate next."

"I love that you get the chance to experience completely different areas of the business, and are given the opportunity to create real impact unlike anywhere else. You’ll be able to learn so much over the course of the programme from across RVU, and from Day 1 have something to show for it that you’d never think possible for someone so early in their career."

'I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the incredible responsibility, and opportunity to work with others of all seniority levels. The result of this has been a rapid career progression that I could have never imagined before joining RVU. Beyond that, it's been a huge amount of fun to see our graduate scheme grow and make incredible friendships within the programme and with other colleagues at RVU.'

"My favourite thing about the RVU Grad Programme is how much autonomy and ownership you have over the work you are doing - it’s really exciting to feel that you are a valuable member of the business so early on. I also really like the flexible approach to rotations; rather than a rigid structure that has to be followed by everyone, you have more of a say in your rotations, taking into account where your interests and skills lie."

"My favourite thing about the RVU Graduate Programme is the hands-on learning experience that I am getting through my role. I appreciate the RVU culture, as well as the support and trust from my colleagues to lead projects, conduct presentations and take part in initiatives outside of my role."
