Head Office Graduate Programme - Operations Stream

The details

The role:

We are currently a team of over 120 in the Head Office at Newton. Due to continued growth, we’re looking for several bright and capable graduates to join our team, in permanent, full-time roles based in our Head Office in Kingston Bagpuize, Oxfordshire.

We will offer you a series of 3-6 months placements in different functions, giving you the opportunity to add value and learn skills and functional experience, plus a wide range of commercial experience in an entrepreneurial growing business.

In the Operations Stream your rotations could include:

  • Legal
  • Finance
  • Scheduling
  • Supplier Management

In each area you’ll work alongside a member of our existing teams to understand those roles and gain hands on experience.

Progressing through your graduate programme, you’ll likely gain an aptitude and desire for a certain area of the business within your chosen stream and be keen to progress from the programme into a particular function after 12-18 months.

The ideal candidate we are looking for would then be excited by and capable of continuing to progress through positions in the Head Office function they joined looking to have a long-term plan of joining the business management and leadership.

Your education, skills and experience

You’ll be a high calibre individual, with exceptional levels of personal drive and eagerness for personal development. An analytical mind, coupled with strong communication skills and a positive attitude are essential to fit into the Newton culture.

To apply for our Operations Stream you’ll be on your way to, or have achieved, a graduate level qualification and have the below skills and attributes:

  • Able to deal with a rapidly-changing environment and act on your own initiative
  • Belief in demanding better in everything they see and then the drive to make changes happen
  • Excellent interpersonal skills, including being able to inspire others toward change
  • Able to empathise with others
  • Numerate and able to solve problems with a data based approach
  • Passion for personal development and able to self-reflect on your abilities
  • Good IT skills
  • Organised and able to prioritise competing demands
  • A pleasure to work with and a sense of humour

How do we develop and reward you?

Newton maximises the potential of our people, whether in client-based consulting roles, or in support functions. The prospects for career and personal development in this role are no exception, with future possibilities across any part of the business support team.

Supporting you starts from day one. Throughout your time at Newton, you’ll get support from several sources – from stretching projects, on-the-job feedback and developmental guidance from our leaders.

For the duration of your Graduate Development programme, you will be working in your cohort with a Management Sponsor, who has been assigned to your group to provide guidance and support. The major part of the curriculum is structured around Breakfast Sessions called ‘Food for Thought’ (FFTs) which are coached sessions with exercises, peer support and time for personal reflection. These will be once every 6 weeks. You will also take part in some longer courses including the ‘Impact’ programme and our ‘Induction Training Camp’ both in offsite locations. Beyond the Graduate Programme your development will continue. You’ll have a dedicated and consistent Development Manager to support your career progression and receive regular appraisals and annual pay reviews.

We offer a highly competitive salary and our generous benefits package includes Life Assurance, Income Protection, pension contributions and 25 days’ holiday. Your overall starting package will be £31,000-34,000 per annum plus a £3,000 joining bonus.

Joining us also brings many social benefits! We have a full social calendar with Autumn and Spring activity days, Christmas events, 3-day Summer event and 4 Newton-sponsored weekends a year.
