Pareto is the UK’s largest and most successful graduate assessment, placement and training organisation. Market leaders in our field, we’ve pioneered an innovative approach and a unique philosophy toward sales recruitment, training and development. We pride ourselves on going further which is why leading companies in the UK, US and Europe trust us to connect them with the very best talent – we’ve worked with Barclaycard, npower, Electrolux and countless others.

Life at Pareto begins with our Graduate Management team: as a Graduate Manager you’ll learn the business from the ground up, being the first point of contact for all talent that comes through our process.

Following your initial induction and training on our recruitment and assessment day process, your typical day-to-day responsibilities will include:

During your time as a Graduate Manager, you will learn about the different sides of Pareto and engage with all areas of the business. Once we have a better idea of where you fit, we determine where you will sit within the sales team.

The next step, between 3-6 months after you join us, is an interview for either a Trainee Business Development Executive or Trainee Account Manager role. At this point, you will enter the Pareto Academy and undertake comprehensive training to support you in the next stage of your career.
