eBay UK launches graduate scheme

eBay UK is launching a new graduate scheme and a ‘Shadow Board’ to help stay ahead of customer trends.

eBay UK’s general manager Murray Lambell said that the online marketplace’s new and rising talent will be “vital” to understanding changing market trends.

The company’s first ever graduate programme will open this summer.

The scheme received nearly 700 applications, but only six graduates will receive the 22 month contract working across central eBay teams, including trading, marketing, and sales.

eBay is also launching a ‘Shadow Board’ of junior rising star colleagues to provide insight and advice to the UK leadership team on issues like customer trends, sustainability, and in-work culture. The board will be made up of seven employees from a variety of departments.

“At eBay we’re always looking to bring in fresh perspectives and challenge the status quo – that’s how we stay one step ahead of our customers and support our sellers,” said Murray Lambell, general manager, eBay UK. “Not only will our new graduate scheme jumpstart the careers of some brilliant young people, their insight and skills will be an excellent contribution to eBay.

Lambell added:"We’ve also put together a Shadow Board, a seven-strong committee of colleagues, tasked with providing new ideas and insight to our leadership team. We can’t wait to see what they come up with.”

Applications for the next cohort of graduates opens at the end of 2021.
