L'Oreal will 'increase graduate placements by 25%' in 2011

Published: Wednesday, 20 October 2010   Category: Marketing

L'Oreal is planning to increase its graduate scheme intake by about a quarter next year, according to one official.

Ben Hayward, a graduate recruitment executive at the cosmetics giant, expressed his belief that the outlook for young Britons looking for marketing jobs is "very good".

Speaking to the Guardian, he explained that L'Oreal offers a one-year rotation programme which allows graduates to immerse themselves in different parts of the business.

"We didn't reduce the number we recruited during the economic downturn and encouragingly, 2011 will see not only a 25 per cent increase in the number of graduates L'Oreal hires but also an increase in our starting salary," he told the news provider.

The other main keys to finding the best graduate roles are work experience and becoming involved with clubs and societies at university, Mr Hayward added.

L'Oreal was founded in 1909 by Eugene Schueller and has since become the world's largest cosmetics and beauty company.
