Graduate Scheme

An exciting and unique opportunity to take the next steps in your career, supporting the Armed Forces wherever they are around the world.

For the second year running, we are on the lookout for three ambitious and dynamic individuals to join our new Graduate Scheme. With access to extensive training and mentorship, graduates will take part in a rotation during their first year spending a period of time in various departments including Operations, Commercial, Finance, Business Development, Marketing, Risk and Audit and HR. Each graduate then has the opportunity to select their preferred department where they will spend their second year.


Our Scheme will see the graduates secure a permanent role in year three, providing excellent progression opportunities and exposure to a global working environment.

What our Graduates say


I’ve enjoyed exploring various departments during my time with NAAFI. From Finance and HR to Marketing and Supply Chain each department has furthered my understanding a skillset. It’s an amazing experience to test yourself in different aspects of a unique business, with the potential for global travel!


Joining the Graduate Scheme at NAAFI has enabled me to discover all aspects of the business; everyone has been extremely welcoming and supportive. I’ve always been passionate about the Armed Forces and now the next steps in my career are at my fingertips.


I’m delighted to be taking the next steps in my career with NAAFI and now have multiple potential avenues to explore. I’ve learnt a vast amount from each department and the scheme has challenged me to question processes and improve efficiency.
