What’s it like joining our Graduate Scheme?

Our graduate recruitment remains open to applications!

In our final blog by current participants on our Graduate Scheme, we hear from Jack, who joined our Coleshill team this year– with some great insight and advice about the first three months with the Graduate Scheme.

I joined JBA Consulting in September after studying Geography at university. It has been great to quickly settle into the team at the Coleshill office and feel part of the wider JBA family.

When applying for jobs after I graduated, I decided early on that JBA was somewhere I wanted to work. The varied workstreams and focus on supporting graduate development were key reasons that encouraged me to apply. As a graduate it is helpful to have a structure as you start in your career which JBA provide with their graduate development programme. This has helped to know how I will progress in the future, given me clear goals and provided ample opportunities to build my skills. Regular meetings with my team leader are especially helpful to review how I’m getting on, plan future training and set SMART goals.

One of the most enjoyable aspects about being a graduate at JBA is that you are immediately involved in varied projects. Although this can be daunting at first, it has been an effective way to apply the skills I learnt at university and I already feel confident completing tasks I didn’t know how to do before I started. It is particularly rewarding to complete work independently, and there is always someone in the team willing to help when you need it. In addition to on-the-job style learning, frequent webinars cover technical and professional skills.

It has been a brilliant start to working at JBA and I’m looking forward to the rest of the graduate scheme!
