The IPL Graduate Scheme

We pick the best

Each year we look to recruit a number of graduates to join our 2 year scheme that involves a series of placements across different areas of the organisation. The scale and diversity of IPL provides Graduates with the opportunity to hone new skills whilst discovering which area of the business is most suited to their career aspirations. Due to the success of our scheme in 2018, we will not be taking on graduates in 2019.

What our graduates have to say

The two-year scheme has provided me with a range of unique and exciting opportunities which wouldn’t have been available elsewhere.

Taylor Hinchliffe, IPL Graduate

The challenge of the IPL Graduate Scheme is what I’ve enjoyed the most. The quick pace of the business means there is rarely time to sit and ponder but rather get stuck in and see what happens!

Mike Rudge, Specialist - Technologist

Working with different countries and time zones has challenged me and kept me on my toes, but that’s what gives me the buzz! I remember welcoming in the first shipment of US Iceberg Lettuce into Heathrow one Friday in January and realising the enormity of what we do here at IPL.

Peter Lawrie, Specialist - Buyer Edible Produce
