Award-winning Countrywide Residential Lettings, part of the UK's largest lettings and estate agency group, has launched its third Graduate Management Programme, in order to source the best and brightest talent to join its expanding business team.

The two-year programme will equip graduates with the skills and knowledge needed to build a successful career at the UK’s largest and most successful lettings agency. The first year focuses on developing candidates understanding of the business and the various roles within it, while the second year focuses more on management. Full training and development as well as coaching and mentoring will be given to graduates throughout the management programme.

Overall, 30 people have been recruited through its Graduate Management Programme over the course of three intakes. The first cohort finished the programme recently and have succeeded in very different career paths including a student Lettings Manager, Regional Trainer and Customer Care Coordinator, in addition to their typical branch roles.

Commenting on the launch of the latest intake, Nick Dunning, Group Commercial Director at Countrywide/Head of Countrywide Residential Lettings, said:

“As a major employer with over 12,000 employees across the UK, we believe it is important to give young people the opportunity to learn and develop the skills they need to flourish in a business environment.  We want to employ the best talent for our business and the Graduate Management Programme is a great way of sourcing and developing the right candidates to meet the needs of our growing business.”

The third intake of successful graduates from across the UK recently completed a three-day induction course at Countrywide House, the Group’s Head Office in Milton Keynes. In addition, the graduates also received the keys to their company car.

Nick added: “It is an exciting period for Countrywide Residential Lettings, where the growth of our operation is a major focus for the entire group.  Since the start of 2014, we have acquired 23 lettings businesses and have plans for further acquisitions in the pipeline for this year.”

Countrywide believes in selecting a diverse group of graduates and is looking for enthusiastic individuals to apply for the Countrywide Residential Lettings Graduate Management Programme in 2015.  If you are a graduate with a keen interest in business, are customer focussed, matched with a strong personal drive, you can apply for the programme on-line at
