Beth Fear

I’m currently one year into the Graduate scheme and my journey has been fantastic. I’ve experienced time in Marketing, Professional Services, Managed Services, Engineering, Product Planning, Sales and Analytics. Each placement has given the experience in tackling challenging business experiences and has trained me to understand the happenings and functions of each department across our company. 

The business offers me great support and drive for my future ambitions. By having a mentor, I feel supported throughout each placement and have the guidance to shape my placements to better my learning. It has also taught me a lot of personal lessons about aspiring to be the best you can and the importance of always upskilling yourself at any given opportunity.


Jo Howell

My degree studying both mathematics and psychology enabled me to explore my range of interests and I wanted a scheme that would allow me to continue to explore the skills I was developing. With limited business experience, I was excited about the variety offered in MHR’s rotational scheme and how this would introduce me to different areas of the business as well as the different roles that make up that part of the company.

I am excited for the variety of learning opportunities I will experience in my placements across the business. I am looking forward to the challenges these will provide as well as the projects I will be able to contribute to.
