Focused Development Programmes in change and transformation, data analysis and tech. Three very different routes, but with the same expert training and development and 360 holistic support that Grayce is known for.
Support that goes above and beyond. It’s how we do things at Grayce.
Performance management and mentoring
Every Grayce Analyst is paired with a Delivery Manager to guide their development through the Programme and ensure they continue to deliver excellence on client site. Our Delivery Managers are passionate about developing early careers and will work closely with you throughout your time on the Programme.
Client and industry knowledge
Our nationwide graduate network combined with the market insights of our Leadership Team mean we have a wealth of industry knowledge. We love to share success and knowledge, and share these insights at regular knowledge exchanges and peer-to-peer learning sessions.
Online learning platform
Analysts are able to drive their own development with access to our online learning platform. With over 9000 courses at your fingertips you can access self-guided courses 24/7 on topics from data analysis to graphic design and effective communication. You can tailor your own learning, in-line with what you need to achieve on client-site.
Formal learning and qualifications
To gain a solid foundation in change management, Change+ Analysts earn accredited qualifications in Agile methodology, project management and more. Data+ Analysts will also gain your Agile qualification and have defined learning pathways in Python and SQL. Tech+ Analysts will follow pathways in either Testing, Information Security, or Software Development. After your first year you’ll then be able to build on this foundation and choose a pathway that supports your career aims. Soft skills development is also encouraged, and will round off your technical skill set, so you’ll receive classroom based training to strengthen these and your leadership and management skills.
Developing the leaders of the future.
Our Development Programmes are designed to shape well-rounded professionals. From soft skills to technical training and accredited qualifications, we’re committed to giving you a holistic learning experience that sets you up for success.
