Procter & Gamble (P&G) is known as one of the classic blue chip nurseries for talent and their graduate programme has always been highly sought after across UK university campuses and beyond.
Recently, The Times newspaper in the UK has run a feature on Capitalism’s Great Networks. The first of a five-part series on the finishing schools for the corporate elite looked at how the household products company nurtures talent.
At Procter & Gamble, I saw first hand how desirable coming into P&G was as I became involved in recruitment over and above the day job. This involved leading the team responsible for recruiting in the West of Scotland.
Aside from the challenging work experience, training and development and enhanced skill set gained, the friends I made during my time there were just as important (some pictured below)….as well as making for a great network over time!
