A leadership career in the university sector may not be something you've thought of before. However, for ambitious and talented graduates, it should be a very significant and appealing prospect.

For the past two years the University has run a 15 month graduate trainee programme available to Lancaster graduates from the last 5 years, with at least a 2.1 in any subject.

In the constantly evolving and challenging HE sector, we take the development of high quality future leaders very seriously. That's why The Graduate Programme for University Leadership will invest in your career development, expose you to a range of interesting business areas and work cultures - and ultimately enable you to become one of the industry's most influential senior figures.

We will be starting the recruitment for this scheme on 10 October 2014. However in the meantime potential candidates can register their interest in this programme.
