The JBA Graduate Scheme offers a variety of benefits designed to aid your development and provide a foundation for your future career with us.
When deciding on the perfect graduate role for you, we know it’s far more than a standard job search and that’s why we combine exciting career opportunities with a range of unique benefits. From a dedicated development programme to one-on-one mentoring from industry experts, your career is just as important to us as it is to you.
Key to any graduate scheme is development and that’s why all JBA Graduates follow a tailored training and development programme.
Designed to help develop the technical skills you’ll need throughout your career, our suite of phased training modules allow you to build on the practical knowledge and experience you’ll gain on a daily basis. These bespoke training modules also aim to develop broader skills that can be used across all areas of the JBA business, including consultancy and communication skills and organisation and time management skills. To further aid your progression these modules also introduce key project management and business acumen skills.
Support and Mentoring
It goes almost without saying that by joining the JBA Graduate Scheme you’ll be surrounded by professional experts and industry leaders, but we think it’s worth shouting about!
As an integral part of our team, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about the different facets of our business, whilst working alongside colleagues with a wide range of skills and expertise. You’ll also receive support and advice from your Team Leader and colleagues within your team/office, as well as our dedicated Graduate Scheme Coordinator who will help you develop personalised goals and provide advice and guidance whenever needed.
Innovation is at the heart of everything we do at JBA and as part of our Graduate Scheme you’ll contribute to a wide range of exciting and innovative projects.
Our innovative approach also applies to the way in which we work – something which our graduates are particularly able to take advantage of. As well as benefitting from our agile working policy, where flexible working hours and office locations are arranged to suit your needs, you may also have the opportunity to undertake a six-month placement within a different team or office. Designed to give you greater exposure to our diverse work streams, this unique opportunity is completely optional and dependant on your own interests and career aspirations.
Progression is key to your time on the JBA Graduate Scheme and as you learn new skills, gain experience, and develop your career with us you’ll enjoy a range of additional benefits.
As well as enjoying a competitive starting salary our graduates are also eligible for biannual salary increases reflecting paced progression and the development of new skills. We also provide valuable support and guidance in building the competences needed when working towards chartered membership of professional bodies. To make this process simpler for our graduates we also provide a one-to-one mentor in your third year, who will guide you every step of the way.
By now you’ve hopefully realised we take your personal and professional development very seriously but that’s not the only benefit of joining the JBA Graduate Scheme. There are a whole host of companywide benefits to take advantage of!
Just some of our company benefits include the option to buy or sell annual leave, a generous training budget, a contributory pension plan, our profit-share scheme, life assurance, permanent health insurance and medical/dental assistance. We also like to make the most of our time together by hosting regular social activities and networking events, making it even easier to integrate into our wonderful teams.
