National Graduate Development Programme

Local councils are looking for the next generation of managers to lead critical projects and services that have tangible, everyday outcomes for people's lives. The ngdp seeks to match bright, passionate graduates with councils where they can deliver key projects and amazing value for money.

Applications will re-open at the end of September 2020. Watch this space for updates to our pages. We’ll be addressing queries under our FAQs and there will be revised application timeline with key dates and deadlines available soon.
