The University of Bolton has launched an exciting new scheme to help its graduates enter the workplace.

The Graduate Trainee Scheme provides a fixed-term paid role for students who successfully graduated from the University this summer.

The aim is for graduates to gain valuable experience, giving them the chance to work in a wide variety of University departments.

The opportunity is open to graduates who have completed their studies during the academic year 2020/21.

There will be an induction period, training put in place and a mentor allocated from the University Mentoring Academy.

The University will also contribute towards the costs of a professional qualification or give them access to an appropriate Level 5 apprenticeship programme offered within the University Group, as well as providing up to five days of paid study leave.

Chris McClelland, Executive HR Director at the University of Bolton, said: “We are delighted to launch this new scheme, which we feel will be of tremendous benefit for newly-graduated students and at the same time grow our own professional support talent pool.

“It will enable graduates from a range of disciplines to gain and develop transferable professional skills within the work environment and for many potential graduate professions.”

To be eligible, students are required to have completed their first degree at a minimum of a 2:2 classification or a post graduate programme.

Graduates who are interested, should submit a CV along with a covering letter/personal statement by email to before 6 September 2021.
