Teneo’s London graduate development programme has been running for nearly 15 years. Our approach is to develop consultancy careers and our trainees stay with us for many years. You will develop wide ranging skills across strategic consulting, reputation management, financial consultancy, political and regulatory advice and communications campaigning.
Successful applicants have a chance to work for companies as broad ranging as Facebook, Tesco, Accenture, Coca-Cola, eBay, Nissan, Instagram, McDonald’s, AstraZeneca, National Grid, O2, RBS and the RNLI.
What you will learn
You will receive the best possible training and development opportunities. Our investment in you is considerable.
The 12-month programme will begin in September 2019 with two intensive weeks of training. You’ll meet a variety of experts within the business and learn skills that will be needed for your new role as a Trainee Consultant. Beyond this, you’ll receive regular training sessions throughout the year, to ensure you are constantly developing and flourishing within your role. Throughout the programme you will be fully supported by the graduate development team, your personal talent manager and a buddy.
What we look for
Three steps to success
Step 1: Intellectual curiosity
Complete the application form – all fields are required. On the form, you will need to include a statement of no more than 400 words, demonstrating your thirst for knowledge. This needs to cover how in your everyday life you seek out knowledge and new experiences, and what insight, learning, and different ways of looking at the world have you gained from these experiences. We also want to know how you share that knowledge with those around you.
Remember, we are looking for intellectually curious people with a passion for problem solving, insight and creativity. At this stage, we want to hear about you, your interests and achievements to date. Later in the process we’ll ask you to tell us what you know about our company and the industry.
Application forms sent without the ‘thirst for knowledge’ statement will not be accepted.
Closing date: Midnight on Friday, 21st December 2018
Step 2: Understanding and passion for reputation management and communications
In mid- January, we will contact the candidates we would like to invite to the next stage – approximately 50. If selected, you will then be asked to:
Date for your diary: Wednesday 6th February 2019, all day
Step 3: Assessing potential
Of the candidates who impress us most, 15-20 will be selected to attend a full assessment day. The purpose of this is to simulate, as closely as possible, some of the activities you will be involved in if you join us. At times, you will be working in groups and at others individually. The only thing you are required to prepare in advance is a presentation in response to a selection of topics provided to you seven days beforehand.
You will find out whether we want you to join our team a few days after this final assessment day.
Date for your diary: Wednesday, 13th February 2019, all day
Start date: The candidates we invite to join us will start in early September 2019
