Meet James, South-east Business Management Graduate

James, a 25-year-old Business Management graduate from the University of Portsmouth, joined SUEZ recycling and recovery UK in the southeast in May 2023. He is among the bright minds who have launched their careers with the SUEZ Graduate Programme.

Every year, the SUEZ Graduate programme recruits candidates across our UK business in various roles, disciplines, and departments. We recognise the benefits of harnessing and developing new talent. Recent graduates can join us either through our graduate scheme or by applying directly for roles designated for graduate applicants. Our twice-yearly graduate scheme offers placements in specific departments such as energy, production, and commercial operations. This structured programme develops graduates’ skills and careers, providing individual mentoring, support, and the flexibility to specialise in areas of interest. Graduates gain broad experience across the business, often progressing into senior management.

During his time with SUEZ, James has already been involved in a variety of projects including our Mid-Kent mobilisation and year-end reporting, as well as a standardisation project across industrial and commercial (I&C) depots.

He adds: “The role is a great opportunity for someone looking to learn all about the industry and gain valuable experience. The thing that made this role stand out to me was the opportunity to work for a sustainability focused business and the chance to make a real difference.”

We are delighted that our Graduate Scheme helps bring young talent like James into the industry. We look forward to continuing to support his development.
