Welcome to Verastar

Our future, in your hands

The Verastar Graduate Programme

If you’re looking for a place to develop valuable skills, build amazing relationships and grow your career then you’ve come to the right place.

On this 18-month programme you’ll be given the training and opportunities to stretch yourself. You’ll achieve goals you might not have expected and discover job roles you didn’t know existed.

You’ll need a positive attitude and a willingness to learn and give things a go, because sometimes you will be pushed outside of your comfort zone. But, as the old saying goes, nothing good ever came easy!

The programme is split into two streams. Click on an option below to find out more:
