Ten graduates have been given the opportunity to launch a career in the housing sector through a programme in Bradford.
Consultants Sutton Smith and Incommunities have developed a partnership called The Centre for Partnership and delivered the Graduate Employment Mentoring (GEM) programme, which is being funded by the government and run on behalf of Bradford Council.
Each graduate is to take part in three different work placements over a 14-week period, with the conclusion resulting in them hosting an exhibition for key partners in the housing sector.
Trevor Smith, director of The Centre for Partnership, said: "This exciting new scheme aims to enhance the career potential of each participant by offering them a high-quality programme of challenging work placements and training in project management and management skills."
Adnan Ud-Din is among those looking to use the programme to find a graduate job in the housing sector and feels that it is providing him with a good way to develop both his skills and his expertise.
Meanwhile, the NHS recently took the decision to increase the number of graduate jobs on offer by providing university leavers with degrees in PR with positions for the first time.
