What Employees Say
I have been working at Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames full-time for more than a year
This two-year graduate scheme, run by the Local Government Association, is a great opportunity to commence your career in public sector and local government. It's a two year programme across four... different placements with a department of your choosing. Managers so far have been extremely supportive and there is plenty of opportunity to be able to work closely with senior colleagues. Also one of the friendliest environments I have worked in.
It's a shame that there is no guarantee of a job (or that the scheme doesn't lead into a full time position at a higher level) after the two year contract, as talent is not retained, and usually lost... to other areas such as the Civil Service, public sector consultancies etc...
Advice to Management
Consider reviewing the graduate scheme in terms of retaining talent.
