- Role: Commercial Graduate 2015/16 Programme
I found the Graduate Programme really enjoyable. I am happy with the level of responsibility I was given and felt pushed by CALA to further develop myself through well organised training days and general daily duties.
- Name: Alexandra Deol
- Role: Land Graduate 2016/17 Programme
I found the recruitment process at CALA not only straightforward but also enjoyable. There were various elements to the process, for example an online interview, which is something I had not done before but enjoyed being tested in a different way. I felt the process was there to challenge me, yet the CALA team were always on hand with support and ready to answer any queries I had. The assessment day was a chance to really show how you could apply yourself in a role at CALA and we were all made to feel very welcome – I am still in touch with most of the graduates I met on the day and it has now been 5 months! Before I started, I got to spend a day with my future director to get a flavour for the role and meet the rest of the team - this really helped me settle in on my first day.
