We're excited about hiring our next Management Graduate. Do you fancy a hands-on graduate scheme? With opportunities in leadership, service and sales, are you ready to bring your endless enthusiasm into a graduate scheme where you control your destiny? Let's start with the money:

£22,399 basic + bonus + structured career progression + mobile phone + tablet + company discount scheme


Who are we?

We are Rentokil Initial, a FTSE 100 Group with a small-company feel. We desperately want our graduates to enjoy working here and you'll find our people to be honest, approachable and outwardly friendly; whether it's first-thing in the morning or on their way home.

As part of Rentokil Initial, Initial Washrooms offers business bathrooms accessories and provides the maintenance service to go with it. We are a market leader and were Glassdoor’s 7th Best Place to Work in the UK 2018. We've won many more recent awards in safety (RoSPA, IIRSM), innovation (Queen's Award for Enterprise two years running) and our CEO has been in the top 50 list for two years running.


We are looking for hands-on Graduates who want to be in control of their own future, are target driven and want to be rewarded against their own performance!

What the Graduate scheme looks like:

You will develop your skills and knowledge over 18 months, preparing you to take advantage of the many progression opportunities on offer. You will choose to take on a role as either a front-line manager within the servicing part of the business or enter the Initial Washrooms Sales world, where you will grow existing contracts and establish new ones as a Sales Consultant.

Below is a taster of what the first months of the Graduate programme will look like:

Weeks 1-4: Working with our frontline colleagues, servicing servicing soap dispensers, air fresheners, sanitary and nappy units and floor mats for our customers across our routes. This isn’t the most glamorous of roles and you will be dealing with some unpleasant sights and smells. However, this will allow you to learn what it takes to provide excellent service to our customers.

Weeks 4-12: This will be your first glimpse into management, shadowing and working with our front-line operational managers, understanding how to manage a fleet of commercial vehicles, monitoring the drivers’ performance, learning to plan routes and deal with customer issues, ensuring all vehicle documentation is maintained and vehicle servicing and repairs are completed. You will also learn vital transport legislation, carry out customer quality audits and deal with customer issues.

Weeks 12 - 24: Continuing to expand your knowledge and experience by undertaking an operational role, shadowing an experienced colleague to learn the day-to-day mechanisms for managing a group of frontline colleagues. You will also attend a Management Development programme which provides all aspects of management training.

After 6 months: Remaining in a Service role, you will be responsible for a small team of frontline colleagues, being accountable for their performance as well as your own. You will be coached, supported and mentored along the way.

After 12 months: Your Graduate training will be drawing to a close.You may decide to remain in a service role and continue to grow in your current position until a more senior role becomes available - promotions will be based on personal performance measures so we'll be watching your development closely!

We'll also discuss whether you would like to move into a sales role - you should have a good feel by this point whether sales will suit you, we'll also be able to guide you on where your skills are best-placed. If this was your choice, you would start as a field-based Sales Consultant. You will take part in a six-week Sales Academy, covering the following plan:

Week 1 Introduction to the Initial Sales Process

Weeks 2 & 3 Product & Service training

Week 4 Systems & I.T. training

Week 5 How to sell

Week 6 How to plan your diary

After your six weeks’ training, you will start your new position as a Sales Consultant, selling our products & services to both new and existing customers, this gives you the opportunity to earn lots of commission!
