Can you afford not to take a long-term view on talent development?

Trust QA to provide effective graduate training


Pressures on headcount budgets and optimising effectiveness from your current team can make graduate induction programmes seem a luxury. But the key is to create programmes that balance this with the need to ensure all new recruits quickly contribute to business goals.

Graduate induction programmes that are an expensive luxury have the same problems:

  • there is no measurement process in place to accurately assess return on investment
  • they have not kept pace with changes in the business or the market
  • a lack of consistency from one part of the programme to another gives graduates a fragmented view of the organisation

A smart solution is to let us help you with your graduate training programmes: after all, training is our business, and we've provided successful graduate training programmes to many organisations.

Investment bank graduate programme


The challenge - to optimise a learning programme for 100+ graduates recruited for operations, finance or technology roles across investment banking and asset management

Meeting these diverse needs had previously resulted in significant overlap and unnecessary expense. So we worked with our customer to project manage the entire programme, including consultation to select the right partners for finance sector-specific content. As a result, our programme delivered significant improvements:

  • Integration of all modules to create a seamless programme
  • Inclusion of alternative ways of learning, including simulations
  • Development of key inter-personal and team skills required for success in a finance environment
  • Working in a global environment and the importance of cultural awareness

The programme is now run annually to develop tomorrow's talent.

A bespoke approach for a perfect fit


All of our graduate training programmes are specifically designed to meet your unique requirements and include key ingredients that ensure success:

  • We create graduate programmes that are exciting, high-energy and business-focused. The programmes combine training on new skills with individual study, team work and project work.
  • Our solutions are designed to replicate the working environment your graduates are being prepared for. They learn how to solve real-world problems working in a team, showing initiative and using a wide range of skills.
  • We include intensive, case study and project-driven challenges where graduates work long hours. Importantly, these are made fun and we encourage networking opportunities.

Whether you are recruiting a small group or up to 500 graduates per year, the QA solution is the key to effective recruitment, development and retention. We help to create your managers of tomorrow, by ensuring that graduates have gained the best-practice skills required by managers and fully understand your business.
