The jump from college to your first working role can feel like a leap. Brambles had built a Graduate Development Program to help their new recruits hit the ground running – and they knew coaching was the perfect support system as these grads got up to speed.
Growing a talent pipeline
The Graduate Development Program isn’t just a way to help high-potentials build the skills they need to succeed. It’s also a way to attract brilliant thinkers straight out of their undergrad degrees or graduate school, so they can grow at Brambles as they grow as people.
Our coaches turned this growth into a smooth trajectory, helping grads to:
define their career paths and set goals to get there
hone the skills they’d need to reach a leadership level at Brambles
self-reflect on the progress they were making as they made it.
"[My coach] is a great listener and very easy to relate to and communicate with, I can feel myself growing after each session."
We started with a pilot program in December 2020, then ramped up to work with grads in ten different countries across the world.

My coach has given me a new confidence
“Having the opportunity to identify goals and objectives and having a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity was something that I was really excited about when I initially found out that I would receive coaching. It’s something that someone at my level at the company doesn’t always get access to having just a few years of experience. My coach has given me a confidence I will value for the rest of my career”
