Commercial Graduate Programme

Fast-track your commercial career


The Sales Development Programme is a one to two year training programme for aspiring Account Managers or New Business Sales Consultants. Organised into three phases and built around the seven steps of selling, it provides core skills around sales and develops client and product knowledge.

Bringing together aspiring Account Managers and New Business Sales Consultant from across the globe, participants have the opportunity to build relationships and work on research projects together which are then presented to Senior Management. They also get involved in the operations of our Graduate Recruitment Teams to understand the Cloud Direct model and meet consultants at the start of their journey.

The best aspect of the programme is that it helps develop a much broader picture of what goes on across our client accounts in different locations and build strong global relationships.
