How can Entry to Management help your Business?
  1. Build Leadership Capacity and Help Develop Leaders of Tomorrow Graduates have fresh skills and ideas which they can apply to your business to help it grow. While they may not have all the experience of working in industry, what they can do is bring innovation, new thinking and energy into your business.
  2. Create Solutions to Business Issues By employing a recent Graduate, you will get a completed business improvement project which once implemented will see return on investment for your company. This creates an opportunity for you to develop long-term solutions to existing problems built on a foundation of development and research. Graduates bring enthusiasm and new thinking into your business and can give your organisation the edge. Graduates can challenge existing process and develop smarter ways of delivering key aims. Results from our 16/17 programme are in excess of £1 million savings.
  3. Build on your Reputation Demonstrate your commitment to investing in new talent and developing their skills. This will increase the reputation of your business amongst customers, suppliers, peers and employees and will show your business is forward thinking.
  4. Develop Talent Take the time and expense out of recruiting new employees. Through the Entry to Management programme SERC will work with you to find a Graduate who is aligned to your business needs. We will recruit and interview the Graduates, ensuring you have a high calibre of candidate. The placement process can act as a trial period of employment, allowing you to assess the Graduate and offering them a positon upon completion of the programme.
