With outstanding training and development, we'll help you get your career off to a flying start and support you in taking it further along one of our many career pathways.

2021 Graduate Programme

Ambitious for more? We’re recruiting for geographically mobile and talented graduates within the UK, US and China to join our science, commercial and operations teams.

Combining rapid technical progression with leadership skills development, our rotational programme will give you exposure to challenges across a number of our sectors. Designed for tomorrow’s leaders, you’ll develop a real understanding of how we function and help us drive innovative and collaborative working practices across JM. Alongside first-class mentoring and support, you’ll benefit from a bespoke two year development programme to hone your communication skills and prepare for the leadership challenges of the future.

Your first two years will be spent undertaking three eight-month assignments across JM in your chosen country. At this point you may have found your real passion and want to enter into a permanent role, or you could take advantage of our optional third year where you may have the opportunity to experience, for example, an even more challenging placement, international assignment or secondment to a different function. Ultimately, we’ll work with you in creating an experience that matches your strengths and interests, while ensuring your skills keep pace with your ambition.
