University of Birmingham Graduate Training Scheme


The University of Birmingham is one of the largest employers in the West Midlands. With over 8,000 members of staff working across a huge variety of roles, running an organisation of this size and complexity offers a challenge to rival that of any major business or public sector body.

Our Graduate Management Training Scheme provides ambitious and high calibre graduates with an entry point into a dynamic and stimulating career in university management and leadership. The two-year programme includes a rotation of placements across different areas of the University’s Professional Services complemented by a tailored training and development package, mentoring from a senior University director, and a competitive package of benefits.



Start a career like no other and make real difference on the frontline. With up to £34,000 starting salary, a fully-funded Master’s degree and the chance to create real change in prisons, graduates on the Unlocked Leadership Development Programme make it count.  

Reoffending is one of society’s biggest issues. Nearly half of adult prisoners reoffend within one year of release and you could be part of the movement to change this, using your ambition and creativity to lead as a frontline prison officer.

A Times Top 100 employer, we offer a range of benefits:

  • A starting salary of £28,000-£34,000 (dependent on location).
  • A fully-funded master’s degree.
  • Work placement opportunities with our leading corporate partners – including Clifford Chance, PwC and the Ministry of Justice.
  • Group support and 1-1 mentoring on offer.
  • Ongoing networking and development opportunities throughout and following our two-year programme.

This is two years to become a leader. One opportunity to change society.  Our applications are now open for our 2023 cohort. Please find out more information on the Unlocked website.
