Graduate roles available: apply to Innovate UK

We’re inviting university leavers from across various fields of study to join our graduate scheme and work at the heart of UK innovation.

Graduates from the previous Innovate UK recruitment programme

Innovate UK is recruiting for 16 graduates to fill cross-disciplinary roles across its directorates. This includes the sector teams, development directorate, operations and information technology and business change.

We are seeking applications from determined, bright, goal-orientated graduates. The two-year programme will provide on-the-job training and tailored learning and development to help graduates build skills that will further their careers.

Why apply to Innovate UK’s 2017 graduate scheme

The launch of the graduate scheme comes at a time when UK government has reaffirmed its commitment to science and innovation. Its Industrial Strategy aims to build on British areas of excellence through innovation to grow the UK economy and improve living conditions for all.

Ruth McKernan, Chief Executive, Innovate UK, said:

Innovation doesn’t just happen. Aspiring business entrepreneurs rely on Innovate UK to help them realise their ideas and take them to market. We need good people to make this happen and support the UK to be cutting edge. If you’re a recent graduate with an interest in innovation we could be just the place to start your career.

Eligible applicants

We are looking for people who have either graduated with an undergraduate or postgraduate qualification in the past year or are set to do so within 2017. The range of roles available means we will consider applicants across different fields of study. Applicants should be predicted or have achieved a 2:1 or above.
