Our two-year Graduate Programme helps you gain experience and learn new skills from experts who are passionate about improving healthcare, while supporting you in achieving your longer-term career aspirations.
You’ll have the opportunity to work and learn across the entire project lifecycle by spending time working in depth in each one of our three service pillars:
- Strategic Advisory

Working across a wide variety of health infrastructure projects, including national programmes of transformation and investment, your work will be challenging and varied. As you help support the delivery of projects, you’ll be blending hands-on client and project experience with professional development, qualifications and support.
Innovation sits at the heart of our business, and throughout the programme you'll be encouraged to think inquisitively and make a real contribution towards growing and developing our business.
Personal and Professional Development
A clear career pathway
You'll be supported in selecting your preferred technical competency and professional career pathway while supporting a range of relevant projects to help deepen your growing skills and experience as part of your development into a Consultant role in your chosen service area.
Supporting your success

Together, you'll set objectives, supported by investment in learning and development to help you progress along a structured career pathway, with clear and transparent milestones to strive for.
Industry recognised learning
Alongside regular continued professional development through our internal learning and development resources, we’ll ensure you have access to leading industry-wide knowledge and innovation by investing in a relevant professional membership for you, with the opportunity to study for a professional qualification with an industry accredited organisation such as RICS or APM.
