Ironmongerydirect launches Bespoke Graduate Scheme as growth continues

IronmongeryDirect, the UK’s largest online and mail order supplier of ironmongery products, is on the hunt for budding young graduates to join its unique Graduate Management Scheme, as expansion across the business continues.

As part of the bespoke programme, graduates will spend time working across all departments within the company, helping to develop their leadership skills and business expertise in a range of areas, such as product management, operations, sales, marketing, ecommerce, IT, and finance and HR.

Designed to shape future leaders within the business, the year-and-a-half long placement will provide talented young people with personalised leadership and technical training, giving them the skills needed to kick-start their careers straight after leaving university.

During the training, new recruits will be teamed up with a mentor, a line manager and a buddy who will all help guide, support and challenge them throughout the programme. After completing the course, graduates will also be in with a greater chance of securing a permanent leadership role within the firm.

To support the search for talented individuals, IronmongeryDirect has also created a dedicated careers website, making it easier for candidates to see the roles available and then submit their applications.

Dimitra Koutsochera, who completed the course and is now a supply chain and inventory planning manager at the company, believes her time on the Graduate Management Scheme has been incremental in helping her to achieve her career goals.
Dimitra said: “During my time on the Graduate Management Scheme I learnt a great deal – not just when it came to improving my skills and business knowledge, but also in terms of my personal development and people management skills. I was able to gain a better understanding of my own talents and interests, which helped me to follow a career path that was personal and right for me.
“By completing the course, I have been fast-tracked into a successful and rewarding role and have been given some amazing opportunities to progress my career – opportunities I wouldn’t have otherwise had. I would definitely recommend the programme to anyone looking to take that first step along their career journey.”

Wayne Lysaght-Mason, managing director at IronmongeryDirect, said:
“For many graduates leaving university, it can be tough to land the first job that will see them on their way to a successful career. It’s particularly difficult finding opportunities that will allow them to progress up the ranks quickly, with many having to start from the very bottom.
“We have created our bespoke Graduate Management Scheme to make this process easier for those driven, hardworking individuals who are looking to find the right career path for them. We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated and creative young people who can become future leaders and help us drive forward our continued success.”
