Campus 2021 Launch

25 March 2021

We are proud to announce that we are launching our second Campus Initiative this year in the North East. The Canon Business Centre North East Campus is a 12-month professional learning and development programme designed by industry-leading training and sales experts to provide talented and committed young people with the skills and attributes they need to succeed in a fast-paced sales environment.

Our first Campus Programme saw the recruitment of an ambitious group of young adults from East Yorkshire, five of whom have gone on to gain full-time employment with the business. The success of the Programme has led us to take this decision to invest in a brand new cohort of talented youngsters.

“I chose to join Campus because it was an opportunity too good to not go for. It was an exciting local project and would give me a set of skills I was unable to learn at university or any of my previous jobs.”

– Lauren Walker, Campus Graduate -

“The working environment is like no other company. Everyone was so kind from the minute I started life in Campus, which was so refreshing.”

– Ben Staveley, Campus Graduate -

Throughout the Campus Programme, the new cohort will be taught about both the science and art of selling and be given the tools necessary to cope with the practical and emotional challenges faced by the most successful people in business. Graduates of the programme will be rewarded with the offer of permanent full-time employment in one of the most well-respected businesses in the North of England, backed by a world-leading brand. A positive attitude and a curious mindset are required to succeed in this programme, and the rewards can be considerable.

To help facilitate the Campus initiative in the North-East, we opened up in new premises, The Catalyst, in the heart of Newcastle’s city centre.

“The Catalyst is a fantastic base for us, right in the heart of Newcastle. We scoured the North East for a base for the Canon Business Centre that would be congruent with the high-tech purpose-built HQ we have in Hull, and this centre stood out by a mile.”

– Chris Stratford, Regional Director -

The Catalyst will be the main location for day to day work. However, most of the training will take place in our state of the art office in Hull.

In September 2021, the Canon Business Centre Campus Professional Selling Skills programme will employ an intake of 6 Trainee Sales Executives.

As well as undergoing the 12-month curriculum with our Head of Learning & Development, the team will be mentored closely by some of our Senior Account Managers throughout the programme, giving them further advice, guidance and support from our experienced professionals.

As only 6 positions are on offer, places on the programme are highly sought-after and the recruitment process will be both competitive and challenging… just like things are in the world of business.

Applications for this year's Campus programme open on 5th April and close on 18th June. Successful applicants will then be invited to a recruitment day on 3rd July and offers will be made over the following 3 days. If you’re interested in joining this year's Campus, go to our website from 5th April to submit your application or contact us for more information.
