What ECDP Participants Have to Say About the Programme

"The ECDP programme has blended on-the-job work experience of a normal day-to-day role with focused development blocks spread throughout the year. It isn’t rotational which suited me as you can really focus on the business area you are placed in, learn the job and build the relationships required to thrive in that position. Throughout the course, the ECDP graduates have had huge senior management exposure which I think is rare in a company of this size."


"The programme gives you the possibility to develop subject matter expertise and enhance your soft skills and offers great career development possibilities combined with international travel already at a very early stage of your career."
