So you’re sizing up graduate schemes are you? Whether you’ve earnt your degree or you’re close to finishing, it’s time to think about how you’ll show the world what you’re made of.

We couldn’t think of a better way to kick start your career after university, which is why we offer a range of programmes, including Area Management, Human Resources, Finance, Marketing and BC&T (business change and technology). They vary from one to three years, and the best part is that they’re personally tailored to you and your development plan.

It’s a big choice to make, deciding what route to go down after uni. To help you out, we’ve put together the top five benefits of a graduate scheme:

Stack up your skills

After uni, there’s no doubt you’re brimming with knowledge, and you just can’t wait to put it all into practice. A grad scheme lets you do just that through placements, whilst broadening your technical skills through development workshops. So you’ll finish the programme knowing that you’ve got all the skills you need to go out into the working world and be a success.

Gain experience working at a large company

Having a household name on your CV is a wise career move, especially if you have less experience and need your CV to stand out. Experience working for a large company that everyone knows will certainly do that, especially if they’ve got a good reputation.

That said, we hope that anyone selected for a graduate scheme at M&B will choose to stay on and build their career with us. We make sure to offer our teams equal opportunities and access to learning and development, so you can be sure that the only way is up for our graduates!

Also, all our retail graduates and corporate graduates get to spend some time in our pubs and restaurants during their induction, so you get a feel for what it means to be part of the team, right from the beginning.

Achieve something you can be proud of

You should think of a graduate scheme as your chance to show what you can do. Whether it’s applying what you learnt at university or learning to navigate the working world, like Lily has done.

“It is a very fun, rewarding scheme however it is challenging and does definitely test you (but in a good way!) It is where no day is the same as the next, both from a location side but also a task side and one that you will definitely not get bored of!”

Lily completed an Operations Graduate scheme at M&B, and she’s right to say the programme isn’t a piece of cake. But, your buddy, line manager and placement manager will all be on hand to help you right the way through.

Work with other graduates

For our teams, work isn’t just about turning up to get the job done. We all want to have fun along the way. We employ lots of grads throughout the business, so you’ll get to work closely with people who are at a similar stage of life as you. And what we mean by that is, you’ll pick up a work bestie or two.

Earn a competitive salary

We want our graduates to love every moment and to take home a good salary. All our programmes offer a starting salary of £30,000. And the perks don’t stop there. Here are a few other things we offer our colleagues to help with their financial wellbeing:

● A company car for HR, Marketing and Business Operations graduates

● Opportunities for flexible working, so you can save on travel

● 33% employee discount for you and 5 friends, across all of our businesses

● 20% friends and family discount which you can gift to 5 friends or family members of choice

● Enrollment in our bonus scheme

● Free shares in M&B once you have worked here for a year

● Buy up to 10 extra days holiday each year

Fantastic career opportunities with one of the UK’s largest operators of restaurants, bars and pubs

So there you have it - the five benefits of a graduate scheme. And, an insight into our programmes here at M&B. Now all that’s left to do is check out our graduate schemes.
