The programme will include 3 or 4 placements at Halma operating companies, each around 6 months duration. You will be involved in selecting locations for the placements and we are willing to consider placements overseas subject to language considerations.
Each placement will include a challenging assignment to ensure you experience responsibility while advancing your learning and experience. As well as a chance to apply your technical knowledge, you will learn general business skills and how to work with other people in small, entrepreneurial organisations. We are keen that you gain commercial as well as technical experience and you will spend time working with our customers.
In addition to these placements, all graduates will spend a minimum of 2 months working in China or India.
During three residential modules, you will be coached in teamwork and communication skills. This will also enable you get to know the other graduates on the programme.
Throughout the programme you will be in contact with a mentor – someone knowledgeable about Halma and sufficiently senior to provide guidance and support.
Early in the second year of the programme we will review progress and discuss your objectives for your first job, allowing us to plan a relevant final placement.
The programme is designed to last 24 months, but with some flexibility for earlier completion if you have already settled into one of our operating companies and are keen to start your next work stage.
