In addition to 40 graduate places in the UK, we have committed to four new graduate placements in the Middle East in 2016. This will be the first time we have created dedicated roles in the region. Technical graduates will take on sales and marketing roles initially to help support growth in the Middle East before we assign them to different specialisms within the wider business.
RSK human resources manager Sarah Murphy says, “Our flexible, entrepreneurial management structure enables us to expand into places such as the Middle East where others may not be able to go. It also means we can continually adapt and hone our graduate programmes to respond to our business needs and those of the graduate community.
“As we continue to expand into new markets outside the UK and Europe, there are more and more opportunities for graduates to gain invaluable experience and help to influence our growth plans.”
In addition, the RSK board has also pledged further support to expand and improve the existing UK-focused graduate scheme, which has been running since 2010 in the geosciences, environment and planning divisions. RSK is currently seeking applications for the next tranche of graduates to join the geosciences programme. Placements are also due to open up soon for other environmental departments.
Since its inception, RSK’s graduate programme has brought in close to 100 graduates. Outside the scheme, we have also recruited at least double this number of graduates. Last year, we took on a record 40 graduates across the geosciences and environment divisions, and expect to support a similar number in 2016.
If you know anyone who might be suitable for our graduate scheme, please direct them to our careers centre web page. The deadline for applications is 31 March 2016. More placements will also be advertised in the coming months on the main RSK website. You can read the full press release online at Energy Voice. For more information, please contact Sarah Murphy.
