Graduate opportunities

Want to know more about what it’s like to be a part of the Post Office Graduate Scheme? With applications now open for next year's scheme, you can watch our new video. The video is part of our new approach to how we market ourselves to new graduates, which also includes plenty of social media activity on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.

You can also read about the experiences of one of our recent grads, Sandy Chandrasekara or Bella Liu's top tips for securing a place on a graduate programme.

"This year's campaign got off to a flying start" said Kelly Godden, Post Office's Head of Talent. "We had almost 300 applications for our graduate programme in the first week alone which is encouraging to see that we’re an attractive employer to talented young people looking to start their careers. What makes the graduate programme at Post Office so strong is the breadth of experience that we can offer graduates as a retailer and financial services provider and our strong social purpose which we know is increasingly important to this age group."

Our prestigious rotational graduate development programme was recently awarded a ‘Highly Commended’ status at the Business Culture Awards in the Next Generation category, and gives individuals a unique opportunity to develop practical leadership skills and a wide business experience across a range of areas, designed to lead to fast progression into middle and senior level management positions. If you think this would be a good opportunity for you (current Post Office colleagues can apply) or someone you know, please visit our recruitment page here. To succeed, you will need:

  • A 2:1 or equivalent in any degree discipline
  • Ambition and passion and will live by our business values
  • A hunger for learning, resilient attitude and strategic thinking
  • A natural 'Future Leader' attitude
