When is a GRAD scheme more than just a GRAD scheme?

How about when it’s not aimed at Graduates!

Barrington James is pleased to announce the launch of an exciting talent attraction programme, designed to meet the current needs of our expansion plans:

The Barrington James Global Relocation and Development Programme

Dean Govier, our Associate Director of Talent Acquisition and Employee Engagement says:

“I’m very excited to see more people making a conscious decision to begin a career in Recruitment and to support this positive trend, I’m happy be involved in such a great programme.

A programme which although we know will be very popular with recent University students, is also available to those without a degree but relevant experience and the right personal attributes.

Training schemes and GRAD programmes are very popular nowadays. However, it’s very hard to find a structured, well thought out programme of this nature within the Recruitment industry. I know because I’ve tried to find one myself.

Our Board met with various members of our Senior Global Management team to discuss this ACADEMY in great depth. Pulling together over 80 years of combined experience, we’re confident that this is one of the best Recruitment Training Programmes of its kind.


Our GRAD (Global Relocation and Development) ACADEMY will enable new recruiters to gain the relevant skills and get hands on experience within a dynamic working environment. They’ll receive “best in class” training and a great mix of Theory based modules and On Desk application.

Initially our trainees will work from our global HQ in Horley, Surrey, (close to Gatwick airport). Here they’ll be put through an industry specific training programme, learning the full spectrum of recruitment techniques including both Candidate Sourcing and Business Development.

Ultimately they will be responsible for building their own successful “recruitment desk” while demonstrating our key company attributes of Commitment, Initiative, Professionalism and Attitude.

I expect to be able to personally offer a Relocation Opportunity to every member of our Academy within their first 12 months service with us.

As an “Open Academy” we welcome applications year round. At the moment we have opportunities available in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Frankfurt, New York and North Carolina with further offices on the horizon.

The business very generously supports each relocation with return flights, subsidised accommodation, familiarisation tours, VISA applications and a salary review before relocating.

We have a very clear and transparent career path here at Barrington James, and a relocation to one of our global offices could be just one of many options available to our employees.”
