Graduate opportunities across Europe, Asia, Australia and the US Before you know it, you could be working your magic at the heart of Merlin Entertainments plc – home to some of the world's most popular attractions, including Madame Tussauds, SEA LIFE, Alton Towers Resort and LEGOLAND to name a few. Over the last few years, our graduates have had the opportunity to manage teams of 100 after just 18 months, to create music festivals that have generated £45k, and to take part in £6m relaunch projects. So if you want to accelerate your career, look no further. We're looking for graduates that share our drive and determination to join us on our 18-month programmes. Individuals with the strength of character to challenge the status quo and take our business forward. People like you who could be a future leader of our global business. It won't be easy, but you'll see that as half the challenge. And you'll of course be given all the support you need to fulfil your potential. There aren't many businesses that offer the chance of progression to leadership at such a pace. Nor the potential of such an international career – do well, and you really could find yourself anywhere in the world.
If you're a bright, entrepreneurial graduate with the confidence to lead others and run your own department as quickly as possible, then this is the programme for you. For those who shine, there are plenty of opportunities to take leadership positions around the world, with the ultimate goal of becoming a General Manager of your own attraction. One recent graduate helped stage an episode of Strictly Come Dancing at the top of Blackpool Tower and took care of all the VIPs. Another joined the LEGOLAND team in Florida and raised $225k for charity. The programme consists of three six-month placements at three different sites. From rides and retail to commercial, these operationally focused posts will give you all the people and business management skills you'll need to move into leadership. After that, you’ll be supported by your mentors and the great people you will have around you to move on towards your ideal General Management role. The Accelerate programme offers a tailored development path that will build on your ability to inspire a team and develop the entrepreneurial flair needed to see you play a key role in our expansion plans.
