Earn £30k+ As A Trainee At The Department For International Trade

We’ve got a fantastic job opportunity at the Department for International Trade listed on our site at the moment!

The Government’s DIT department are looking for a trainee to join their International Trade Development Programme in London and are paying up to £34,173 per year.

This is a role which is tailor made for both school leavers and graduates alike and promises to be a very rewarding and interesting stage of your career.

The two year programme consists of four six months blocks, each of which will make your CV the envy of your peers and give you the perfect skill set to move into your next job with ease.

Your first year will be split half and half between the Trade Policy Group (TPG) and the Global Trade and Investment (GTI) team in London.

Your second year will start with a six month overseas placement, supporting UK trade policy, exports and investment at one of the DIT’s 127 offices worldwide.

Your final six months will target your future career aspirations, so you’ll be working with another hand-picked UK team, preparing you for your next international trade job.

Throughout the programme you’ll be at the heart of things; researching and developing new policy thinking, building relationships with contacts in partner markets and working with stakeholders across government and beyond.

Advertising the role on GOV.UK’s Civil Service Jobs website, the job description says:

“Here, your personality and passion matter more to us than any places or dates on your CV. That’s why, even if you haven’t worked in international business or government before, you could be the perfect fit for our exciting new International Trade Development Programme.”

“Naturally, after two years with us, you’ll have plenty of impressive experience to add to your CV. But more importantly: you’ll be on your way to becoming one of the very best international trade professionals.”

Applications for this fantastic opportunity close on the 4th August 2019 so you’ll need to move fast to be in with a chance of landing the role. Don’t put it off any longer, apply for a place on the International Trade Development Programme now!
