Get working life off to a great start, with a role at Informa.
We have a range of opportunities for new and recent graduates as well as apprentices. See all our latest roles here.
In the UK, the Informa Graduate Fellowship scheme is a dedicated two-year programme that sees graduate fellows work across different businesses and roles, following individual interests and learning fast.
Applications for the scheme are now open until 7 January 2024.
We’re dedicated to knowledge and connections: helping businesses and professionals to learn more, know more and do more through a wide range of products and services.
We're also a growing and dynamic company. No two days and no two people are the same here, and you'll find freedom, opportunity and support of a fantastic community to make a real impact.
If you enjoy putting your hand up and getting stuck in, and want to carve your own path, then Informa's Graduate Fellowship Scheme could be for you.
Our Graduate Fellow cohorts are small and highly personal. You'll be an important part of the Informa team from day one, with the chance to steer your career, discover roles you never knew existed and take full advantage of the opportunities available in a diverse international company.
What you can look forward to
A two-year rotational programme that includes:
- Three six-month placements in the UK, each in a different business and role, with the chance to explore areas that match your interests
- The opportunity to spend six months in a placement in one of our hubs outside the UK
- A tailored induction and development programme
- A personal mentor from Informa's management team, plus a buddy from within the graduate scheme
- Full eligibility for Informa's UK benefits. These include 25 days of holiday, rising to 27 days after two years, plus a day off for your birthday, paid time off for volunteering with a recognised charity, a discounted share scheme, health and wellbeing benefits and flexible working
- A vibrant and supportive graduate fellow community and network
Life on the Graduate Scheme
After a week's welcome and immersion programme you'll begin your first placement, joining a team and starting work on live projects straight away.
Our graduate fellows have a large amount of freedom to carve out their own career path.
Graduates have worked as digital marketing associates, treasury analysts, content specialists and sustainability managers, to name just a few. There's the chance to join teams across areas as diverse as data analytics, event operations, editorial production and business development.
The scheme balances on-the-job learning and the chance to take ownership and responsibility from day one with support and structure of an established programme and community.
Where the role will take you
Informa’s Graduate Fellowship Scheme offers the chance to explore different roles, make connections and learn through training as well as through working on live projects.
There are countless opportunities to succeed, and many of our graduates have continued their career at Informa and moved into permanent roles after completing the scheme.
The scheme manager, your graduate community and networks built along the way will be there to support you.
After three placements in the UK, Graduate Fellows have the opportunity to complete a six-month placement in an Informa office outside of the UK.
It’s a chance to jump into different cultures and ways of working and bring new perspectives and fresh ideas into your next role.
From Dubai to New York, Toronto to Amsterdam and Singapore to Hong Kong, our Graduate Fellows have made connections and discovered new experiences.
Wherever our graduates are in the world, there is a consistent level of support every step of the way.
Who we look for
At Informa, everyone works to a common set of principles. These qualities are also what we look for in all graduate candidates. You can learn more about our principles here.
We're open to graduates from all backgrounds and areas of study who have achieved or are on course to achieve a minimum 2:1 degree or equivalent. Previous work experience in a business or professional setting is valuable but not required.
Beyond that, we'll also be interested to hear more about:
- How you have developed different skills and strengths through education and work
- Your curiosity to learn
- Your experience of using digital tools and emerging technologies
- How you approach analysing situations and solving problems
- How you communicate to others and present ideas and findings: verbally, in person and in writing
