Forsyth Barnes Graduate Scheme

“Work like most people won’t, so you can live like most people can’t”



“What’s it like to work at Forsyth Barnes?”

“What will my colleagues be like?” 

“What’s the culture like?” 

“How will I get my first promotion?”



We know joining a new business can be exciting and challenging, and we know that most people will want to find out lots about the company before they start.

At Forsyth Barnes we pride ourselves on the family culture, working hard and having fun, and this extends to our fantastic Graduate Training Programme. We have grown 100% year on year since inception and the growth opportunities here are not only fantastic, they are non-stop. You will be given training to make sure you understand your role and you will also be given the autonomy to manage your own workload, giving you a chance to feel empowered and take control of your own progression. We are a company where our team members’ progression is our priority that’s why we want ‘The Right People To Find The Right People’.

If you’re a graduate and you’re looking for a role that requires drive, ambition and hard-work for rewards and a globally recognised career then recruitment could be for you.

We’re on the lookout for ambitious, dedicated and driven graduates who are initially money and success hungry, with a large ambition to develop their long-term careers. We also encourage a lively-fun atmosphere too!


Antonio Catanho – “I was one of the first to join the Academy team and came in with very little recruitment experience so felt it was the best route to get into the swing of things. There were clear advantages to this model, I was able to work closely with the consultants, all of which were easy to work with and able to provide expert advice. As well as being able to see out the full recruitment process, the academy has a dedicated training manager, who is an experienced consultant and is proactive about making sure we are ready to move into the role of consultant. In my time in the academy I acquired invaluable experience that I still use every day as a 360 consultant.”


Graduates are put through a structured and carefully measured 12 week training program which has been over a decade in development. This includes one to one training, group sessions, mentoring and shadowing, coupled with learning by doing. We promote this proactive mentality, and believe it is important to learn by failure as well as successes.

We don’t sugar coat it, the job is demanding and can be tough, especially in the first 6 months. However, if you have always wanted to have your efforts rewarded, to make your own decisions, to progress based on your performance and not politics, then we have the perfect environment for you. If you promise to work hard, we promise to make it fun along the way, and reward you well!



Josh Palmer – “I joined FB and the academy in 2017, fresh out of Uni. I had no recruitment experience and was a complete novice to the industry. The sole reason I achieved my promotion early on into my career, and making my first full 360 deal, is down to the support and training I’ve received from FB. From group training sessions to individual desk cases, the ongoing support at FB is amazing. If you’re at the beginning of your recruitment journey, I couldn’t recommend the academy more highly!”
