Featured Mentor: Allan Wadsworth Graduate Mentor 2

We were keen for our new starter to have as much one-to-one professional guidance but were simply unable to provide this in-house in addition to our training. Fortunately we were able to direct our graduate to GM where they could find an industry professional who had kindly volunteered to assist via the platform. We saw this as a win-win-win situation and were delighted we could turn to GM for extra support in these challenging times. We hope this will give our new graduate the best possible start and enable them to reach their potential earlier and contribute to the business in a shorter time frame.”
