This is what the Which? team does every single day. And that includes our graduates, who are given high-profile responsibility from day one. It’s what’s made us the UK’s consumer champion; bringing about positive change and getting people a fair deal. At Which? we never stand still. We’re always launching into new markets and improving our digital portfolio, particularly with an increase in social media and comparison sites.
It takes a special kind of graduate to become one of our future leaders. Someone who can balance a commercial outlook with an ethical approach. Someone with the grit and determination to do well — whether that’s on our website, in the boardroom or by engaging parliament. Someone with fresh ideas and the confidence to tell us about them.
You’re given a sum of money to research and develop a new way of attracting 21-30 year olds to Which?
How do you spend it?
Our current graduates worked with an outside agency to arrange a series of focus groups. They interviewed 21—30 year olds to get a real insight. After presenting their findings to senior management, they were given the go-ahead to develop their idea.
