Our Insight

BOC is the UK's biggest industrial and medical gases business. Gradcracker’s Carla and Jessica visited their UK Training Centre near Sheffield to meet with their graduate talent team and current graduates. We discovered that BOC's graduate programme lasts for 4 years and allows you to pave your own way to achieving chartership.

Watch/listen to the videos and podcasts below to get a real insight into BOC.

Carla and Jessica take a minute to reflect on their day so far.

We get to know our advertisers by talking to their employees and working with their recruiters on content for their company hubs. We often visit their offices, spending a full day touring their facilities, and hear what they’re getting up to during calls and webinars.

This gives us a real ‘insight’ into their working environment, their culture and the things they are working on. We also learn about their recruitment processes and the things each company looks for in their ideal candidate.

All of this is useful stuff for you to know if you’re considering applying to them – so we thought we’d share it with you!
