Express Vending one of the UK’s leading suppliers of commercial refreshment solutions, has been recognised for its dedication to graduate recruitment, as TheJobCrowd named it one of the top companies for graduates in the UK to work for.
TheJobCrowd, an online graduate employment review database, hosts thousands of reviews on its website, all completed by real graduates in real graduate employment roles. These anonymous reviews are then used to compile lists of the best companies for graduates to work for, taking into account aspects such as average salaries, working hours, potential for progression and the best and worst parts of the job role.
Express Vending ranked highly in two extremely prestigious categories: the Top 25 Small Graduate Employers in the UK, as well as the FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) Graduate Employers.
Both awards reflect the commitment of Express Vending to its graduate scheme, which was first established in 2010, and recruits an average of six to eight graduates every year. These graduates then undertake an extensive training programme, which uses a combination of classroom and on-the-job training to teach them about each aspect of the company in detail. They spend time with field engineers and operators and are given the opportunity to attend international training events. The scheme – which lasts approximately three to six months – has been designed to help each of the graduates grow and progress within the company and Express Vending has cited the programme as one of the key factors behind its recent success.
