Next Ventures’ Graduate Training Academy "The Next Step" Is Launched At UK Headquarters

Multi-award winning niche ‘Large Enterprise Technology’ focused recruitment business Next Ventures has launched its graduate training academy “The Next Step” at its London headquarters. The academy has been created in support of the Group’s graduate recruitment strategy.

Next Ventures has had year on year growth since 2006 and to further accelerate growth over the next 2 years, the recruitment and induction of graduates into the academy programme are key objectives for 2016.

Since Q4 2015 Next Ventures has on-boarded 6 graduates as Graduate Recruitment Consultants who are now members of its academy “The Next Step”, with a further 10 at qualifying stage within the recruitment process. Each academy member is a recent graduate with diverse qualifications in multiple disciplines alongside cohesive attributes including determination and ambition.
“The Next Step” is to be implemented throughout Next Ventures’ international subsidiaries including Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Brazil and the Group’s latest subsidiary to be launched in New York, USA.

“The Next Step” academy’s courses are designed to enable graduates to increase and enhance their sales and business development skills whilst providing a learning platform in recruitment to support their development into 360 degree Recruitment Consultants. Training is delivered by the Group’s Head of Learning and Development who has over 8 years’ experience in the delivery of graduate-focused courses for enterprise technology recruitment businesses.

“We are delighted at the launch of our graduate academy “The Next Step” following the first phase of our recruitment drive and are excited at the calibre and ambition of our successful candidates. We are also thrilled at the high volume of prospective candidates currently in the process of becoming members.” explains Darren Rosenfeld, co-founder of Next Ventures. “This not only meets our short term objectives but provides assurance of the future growth of Next Ventures.”

“We still have a number of Graduate Recruitment Consultant roles to fill throughout the 1st half of 2016 and places to fill within “The Next Step” academy. As our proactive recruitment drive continues we look forward to speaking to graduates from around the UK who are career-minded, money-motivated individuals, mutually interested in a successful career in sales and recruitment.”
