Graduate Scheme

Type: Various Departments

Location: Banbury


No idea what you want to do? Think you have what it takes to develop into a business leader? Go no further. Our graduate scheme offers a 12-month experience in a range of business areas, including but not limited to payroll, sales, marketing, and customer services, after which you are given the opportunity to choose which area suits you best. The scheme provides flexibility, variety and excitement, giving you considerable responsibility from day one. Prove yourself within the first year and there will be significant longer-term opportunities within our businesses, in the area that’s right for you.


What we do

Our purpose is to achieve maximum efficiency within the hospitality sector, using software to optimise labour scheduling and management, provide payroll bureau services, and offer consultancy. We are an exciting, innovative and rapidly expanding business, with an annual growth rate of more than 50% with further new products being developed.


What you’ll do

You’ll begin a 12-month rotational programme within our business, supporting each team with some massive business critical projects, which will enable you to see your contribution take effect almost immediately. Throughout your experience you will have regular catch ups where you will receive constructive feedback on your experience and where we welcome and listen to your ideas for improvement.


What you’ll bring

We’re an inclusive and friendly business – everyone mucks in with a positive and enthusiastic attitude. Therefore, it is essential that you are enthusiastic, business minded and hard-working. You will be a confident self-starter, proactive in your approach and someone who thrives from working on your own initiative.

  • Ability to thrive under pressure
  • At least an A in GCSE Maths

One-to-one mentoring in each area, leading to:

  • A broad range of essential and transferable business skills
  • An exceptional understanding of the hospitality industry
  • Opportunity to advance your career at a pace much faster than in a large corporate organisation

  • Pension
  • Private Healthcare and Life Assurance (after qualifying period)

Hear from our Team

I started my graduate scheme back in August 2020 and it has been a great experience. What I enjoyed the most about the graduate scheme at S4Labour was the fact that I had spells in various departments, which taught me a lot about payroll, account management and also customer support. I have also grown in confidence and have been provided the support to build on my skill sets to progress further.

Account Manager, S4labour

I started my graduate scheme in June 2021. From the offset, I was given a lot of responsibility and it was great to be able to own my own projects and be in control of them. I’ve really enjoyed all the learning and courses I have been encouraged to do which has given me great insights into marketing and other departments in the business.
