Harnham Graduate Scheme

Graduation Day

We’re passionate about learning and development at Harnham. We are committed to giving you the best training in the industry and have training pathways at all levels from Recruitment Consultant to Director.

We offer a market leading graduate programme, that includes digital learning, practical workshops and desk coaching delivered by our Head of Learning and Development, as well as experienced managers from across the business. 

About the Graduate Programme

Our 2 year Graduate Programme is designed to take you from recruitment rookie to recruitment master in 24 months through a set of 15 recruitment and sales modules. After 2 years you’ll go onto our fast track program for experienced consultants, where you will have the option to consider team management or continue developing your career as a top biller.

Our training is bite size. In other words you'll learn enough skills and strategies to put into practice and won't be bombarded with PowerPoint slides! Our nurturing support, guidance and feedback will help you along your way.
