Commercial Graduate Development Programme 2017 - Singapore
We are proud of the products and services we develop. We are equally as proud of the way we do business with the companies that contribute to invest in those products and services. And it is our Commercial team that makes the difference. Join us here and you will be making full use of your commercial aptitude and creative mind set as you help us to find and implement innovative new ways to do business. It is all about contract management - handling our contracts, looking at how we can maximise profits and minimise risk at every stage of the contract lifecycle, from inception and signature to on-going management, disputes and contract closure. As well as making a real contribution to real projects, you will share your ideas about how we can continually improve and deliver on our promise of being "trusted to deliver excellence" to our customers.
We want to give you a strong sense of how our business works, so over a period of 12 to 18 months, you will undertake a series of placements exposing you to the different areas that the Commercial team supports. These placements will be tailored to your business area and will take you through the full contracting lifecycle, enabling you to expand your network within the company, and build on your development needs. The programme will give you a solid foundation of soft and technical skills which will help to kick-start your career when the graduate programme is complete. You will have a lot to take in, so you will be supported by a Graduate Development Consultant and Career Coach - and all of them will do all they can to ensure you get the most out of the programme.
