BusinessWise Graduates Up For Challenge

15 April 2011

Capita Symonds’ graduate business skills programme - ‘BusinessWise’ - saw 18 graduates attend a two day residential at Lledr Hall in Snowdonia National Park recently.

Despite the rain, graduates thoroughly enjoyed their visit and the opportunity to network with colleagues from around the business. Participants undertook a series of challenges throughout their stay to help improve teamworking and leadership skills including cracking codes, completing assault courses and the final challenge of building a new corporate headquarters and catering for the opening ceremony.

Graham Cowley, Chief Operating Officer of Capita Symonds, also travelled to Lledr Hall to deliver a presentation on his past and present working life to inspire graduates to progress their career with the business.

The residential forms part of the first Module ‘Effective Management’. Graduates will complete four modules over a two year period in order to achieve a Postgraduate Certificate in Business Performance Management with the University of Salford. 

BusinessWise will open for new graduate applicants in summer 2011, with successful students joining the programme when it is launched in October.
