Graduates & Placements

Here at Gripple, people really are our greatest asset, so much so that a key promise in our 2021 vision is ‘great people, happy, trained, and long serving’.

Future proofing our business

As part of this vision, we need to attract and retain the best people and the Gripple Graduate Management Scheme forms just one strand of our strategic people development plan to support that vision.

This 12-18 month programme first launched in September 2013 – with the first intake now holding top level jobs in the business. We usually open up the application window in November, with an assessment centre taking place in Sheffield for shortlisted candidates the following January or February.

Personal & Professional Development



The projects element is essential to the programme’s success and will be delivered through departmental rotation and placements.


Leadership Training

Leadership training is delivered at our accredited training centre, the Gripple Training Academy.



The charity and social responsibility element includes a charity challenge with a fund raising target identified with the People & Culture.

In addition, our graduates join the St Luke’s Hospice ‘Young Ambassadors’ scheme alongside young executives from other local businesses. Towards the latter end of the programme, a 7-week expedition to locations such as Nepal, Tanzania and Costa Rica with Raleigh International is also completed – a truly unique opportunity which develops the ability to relate to people outside of the business, communication and team working skills.


Meet Our Graduates

I joined the Gripple graduate scheme in 2012 and have progressed throughout the group, working for both Gripple and Loadhog, developing and introducing products which contribute millions of pounds to our 25% new product target.
