Graduates in Peterborough taking part in a jobs scheme have spoken of the success of the project.
Six of the 11 graduates are looking to extend their contracts with local firms whilst the others plan to use their experience to apply for jobs
Under the Peterborough Graduate Scheme, the young people worked sustainability and innovation projects in Peterborough.
A range of local companies, including AB Agri and Redring Xpelair, created special roles for each graduate, focused on increasing sustainability and efficiency within the business.
Graduate Timothy Wilson has just been offered a permanent position at Lynch Wood based AB Agri, and said: “The scheme has provided me with the skills and experience needed to make the transition into the world of work.”
Steve Bowyer, director of Peterborough DNA, which runs the scheme, said: “It’s fantastic to hear so many of our graduates have been asked to extent their contracts in order to help meet the local business demand here in Peterborough.”
