Great innovation needs great people
At Innovate UK we have a great purpose, but we cannot achieve our aims without great people working for us.
This year, Innovate UK launched our first Graduate Scheme to bring new talent to the organisation. They're people with fresh ideas to help build on what we have already achieved, helping many of the most innovative ideas and businesses in the UK towards commercial success.

Good people make things happen
We set out to find determined, bright, goal-orientated graduates with the communication skills to succeed, and we found them. In September of this year, 7 new graduates joined us across 3 of our core directorates, beginning a programme of training designed to support them as they take their first steps in a new career.
Different people help you think differently
Our 2015 Graduate Scheme is the first step to a more diverse approach to bringing new skills and approaches into our organisation and will help us to develop a pipeline talent for the future. It will create even more ambassadors, not just for Innovate UK but for the benefits of innovation full stop. At the same time, it will give opportunities to university leavers in a highly competitive jobs market.
This exciting step epitomises our mission to ‘fund and connect innovative businesses through a unique mix of people and programmes’ by making our mix of people a little more diverse.
