Kings Welcomes New Graduates to the Team!

Joining us on the 2nd September 2019, Kings is delighted to announce that after weeks of the rigorous application process, we have selected 2 successful Post Graduate Students to undertake our 18-month Graduate scheme. The program is designed to build and grow a pipeline of future talent, welcoming young people to bring new and creative ideas to the business.

Darren Gamage, Kings COO expressed “Graduates enhance Kings with cutting-edge concepts and achieving tasks differently – sparking amazing energy, exciting ideas and view the world in a different way. A technology driven company like ours thrives on pushing the boundaries of the possible, which requires contemporary minds to join our journey and make the impossible happen. I am excited about the quality of Graduates that are joining Kings and very much look forward to working with them in the future. The scheme truly shines a light on how far we have come as a company and where we want to advance to.”

The Graduates have been selected out of an impressive 185 applicants. Following 50 vetting questions and 25 interviews, only 10 candidates were selected and invited to our HQ in Bradford for an intensive assessment programme in our award-winning training facility.  The assessment focused on developing both their technical ability and their interpersonal effectiveness – the chosen 2 certainly emerged at the forefront. Our COO Darren Gamage and CFO Neil Cossey will be mentoring the 2 successful applicants through the coming months to provide guidance, motivation and support to ensure every opportunity is seized.

Sanah Iqbal (Kings Graduate Student) graduated from The University of Bradford with a degree in Marketing and felt that Kings’ Graduate Scheme was the way forward for her.

“I chose Kings as I could see how passionate everyone was about the scheme from when I first attended the assessment centre. I felt I could really learn a lot from the organisation because of their continued support. There are many ideas I can bring to Kings and hopefully these can help drive innovation throughout the company, bringing unique solutions to the industry.”

Amy Silkstone (Kings Graduate Student) from The University of Huddersfield recently finished her Business Management degree and hopes that Kings could benefit her future massively. “My goals for this scheme include understanding in depth the different departments at Kings and helping find and develop ways for them to work together efficiently and effectively to ensure optimum business success.”

We look forward to welcoming both new members to Kings and are excited to see the dynamics, skills and expertise they can bring to each department and the business.
