Employment Opportunities for Disabled Graduates

Our innovative Professional Careers Programme offers graduate traineeships of up to two years with full salary; and employers obtain a pool of talented, motivated disabled graduates and much more. This Programme operates across all of Scotland.

Our Professional Careers Programme offers:

Disabled graduates:

  • up to two years salaried graduate level employment;
  • support to address individual access requirements;
  • an individual training and personal development plan;
  • in-work support throughout by designated staff;
  • tailored employability training; and
  • support into further employment.


  • a pool of talented, motivated disabled graduates to suit their needs that matches the skills, experience and knowledge of the ideal candidate;
  • on-going support from our staff throughout every stage of the recruitment and placement of trainee;
  • support in developing good practice policy initiatives that will have a long-term impact on the recruitment and retention of disabled people.


"The programme has changed my life; my confidence and self-belief are back and I can see a clear career path in front of me. I now believe that I am part of the working world and will succeed in carving out a career of my choice." (Disabled Graduate Trainee).

"Professional Careers has helped raise my hopes and dreams of achieving a long term career." (Disabled Graduate Trainee).

"Our relationship with GCIL has been extremely positive. Not only have we benefited from a high quality trainee who has supported our equalities and engagement work, we have also been privileged to work with a highly motivated and supportive team from GCIL. The benefits of this arrangement have very much been greater than the sum of the parts and we look forward to further work with GCIL." (Mark Swatton, Head of Clinical Governance National Waiting Time Centre, NHS Golden Jubilee National Hospital).


We work with organisations from all sectors to match their needs with an ideal candidate.  A current partnership involves NHSScotland and the Scottish Government to provide disabled graduate traineeships in NHS Boards and Special Boards across Scotland.
