Graduate programme

Our two-year graduate programme is designed to give you an introduction to the many different departments and specialisms we cover at Ofcom.

We build your knowledge and give you first-hand experience on everything from policy and research, through to communications and cyber-security.

While you’re taking part in our graduate programme, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of how our work aligns with parliamentary policy and guidance. You’ll have the opportunity to support senior colleagues as they engage with Government officials from sectors like the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

You’ll also have the opportunity to develop your research skills – learning audience measurement techniques and translating data into insights to help inform major reports such as the BBC Annual Report, or the Media Nations and Online Nation reports.

Graduates can also get involved in our work supporting vulnerable customers, as well as opportunities to work within our nations offices to help tackle issues that are impacting one area of the UK.

For our specialist pathways, graduates have an opportunity to develop a broad range of technical and behavioural skills in their chosen area, building on the knowledge and skills they already have.

As an Ofcom graduate, you’ll benefit from our Early Careers Learning Plan. This is an umbrella programme that brings together all of our early careers colleagues (including apprentices) to attend formal Development days and additional training. This additional training includes Ofcom related skills such Project Management, Governance and Accountability, and Research and Data, as well as covering other skills such as planning, presenting and writing . We also provide the opportunity to hear from other industry experts and motivational speakers.

Our next intake starts in September. For more information click here.
