The NAO graduate blog has asked Katie Clifford from our HR recruitment team to tell us more about the imminent launch of our brand new graduate scheme, and the upcoming tour of university careers fairs.

Careers fair stallGood news: The NAO’s 2015 graduate scheme will soon be open for applications! We’ve recently re-launched our training schemes to focus more on the impact the NAO makes providing assurance to Parliament and helping improve public services and the influence our people have. We’re also giving you plenty of information on why the NAO training scheme is such a great place to start your career.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be travelling around the country visiting different universities to talk to as many of you as possible about the scheme. Here’s where we’ll be going:
