The educational year is back us and with it brings a whole new host of marketing graduate schemes, with applications opening for next years intake already. I’ve made a list of some of the top marketing graduate schemes available, take a look and get applying!

I will add more marketing graduate schemes as they are added.


A three-stage application process, Boots marketing graduate schemes are opening this month and will be ready for applications, recruiting in areas of Buying, Marketing and Branding.

Successful applicants are put on a starting salary of £24,000, plus an extra £1,000 as a welcome. There is also a generous discount scheme on offer for both Boots branded and non Boots branded products. Holiday, bonus schemes and a pension all make up the life of a Boots employee.

L’Oreal’s marketing graduate schemes are open for applications now, ready for their 2014 intake. Both industrial marketing placements and summer internships are available, offering starting salaries of £18,000.

It’s a great hands-on experience, covering a range of areas in the marketing side of the business, from competition and market awareness, project management and research to data analysis, budgeting, creative strategy and design.

Applicants must be on track for a 2:1 degree and will begin their year-long placement in June.


Nestle’s two year marketing graduate schemes are open and taking applications already. Students can either apply for a grad scheme, or Nestle’s internship programme. Working on a range of brands under the Nestle umbrella, it’s a hands on, but challenging role where no two days will be the same.
