Foodservice and facilities management firm Servest Group has launched a new training programme aimed at developing the organisation's highest performers and attracting graduates.
The two-year scheme, which will begin next March, will see four existing employees and four graduates spend time working in each of the company's main divisions: catering, building maintenance, security, cleaning and central services such as HR, finance and sales and marketing.
The participants will also study management skills, backed up by the Institute of Leadership Management qualification in leadership, which will be run internally.
Upon completing the programme, participants will move into a management role, or look to study further qualifications for the divisions that require it, such as finance.
"The scheme demonstrates our commitment both to attracting the best people into FM and also developing our own talented team members to ensure a leadership pipeline," said Rob Legge (pictured), group chief executive UK and Europe at Servest.
"Both qualifications and experience are important in FM and by bringing both existing team members and new graduates into the scheme, we are reflecting that need."
