Business Development Manager at NWRC Sinead Hawkins is encouraging graduates to apply for the new programme.

A new programme is being launched in Derry to find the city's 'Future Leaders'.

The North West Regional College’s (NWRC) Business Support Centre are recruiting ‘Future Leaders’ for a new graduate management programme as part of the Northern Ireland Executive’s recovery response to Covid-19 for the economy.

NWRC Business Skills Manager, Sinead Hawkins, said the new programme will run for 22 weeks and will start in November.

“We are looking for applicants with a minimum of a degree,” she said.

“Successful applicants will be placed with an employer for 30 hours per week and will be matched by their CV and career aspirations.

“They will also complete a business or service improvement project and receive a weekly training allowance of £150.

‘’As well as gaining valuable industry experience with a view to securing employment, successful applicants will work towards a Level 5 Leadership and Management qualification which is supported by four hours of online training per week through NWRC.’’

The graduate management programme is fully funded by the Department for the Economy’s Skills Intervention Programme and is in collaboration with the other further education colleges in Northern Ireland.

The closing date for applications is Monday, October 26, at 5pm.
