The challenge

A highly motivated graduate was finding it difficult to win a place on a multinational pharmaceutical company Management Trainee Scheme.

Such was the competitive nature of the process, this individual had been unsuccessful on 2 previous occasions.

They decided to access a scheme through a CSO sales role and approached CHASE’s Graduate Academy.

The solution

Having received the benefit of the support and coaching provided by the CHASE Graduate Academy, they were successfully placed on a field sales contract with a major Pharma company.

We continued to coach and develop this individual over the following 2 years.

The outcomes

After 2 years they finally gained entry to the Graduate Management Trainee Scheme.


"CHASE gave me a fast start to my career in the pharma industry. Fresh out of Uni I submitted an application to CHASE and within one week they’d found me a fantastic job with a large pharmaceutical company which was perfect for me. I felt well supported throughout the interview process and got the job which kickstarted an exciting career. I remained a contractor with CHASE for 2 years and then was fortunate enough to have their support in securing a headcount role with the same company on their graduate commercial management trainee scheme. I am very grateful to CHASE for giving me the initial platform to gain some great experience as a sales representative which has now lead onto account management, marketing and line manager roles. I have fond memories of working with everyone at CHASE. It was great to work with a team that always had my best interests at heart."
