Career development

It’s our job to make sure you enjoy your job. We want you to learn, discover and love your career and we’ll do what we can to make it happen.

We’ll offer you the training, support and development you need to be the best you can be. Whether you want to study for a professional qualification relevant to your career development, to try something new or move into a different business area, we’ll be right behind you. Our commitment to developing our staff is demonstrated by our Investors in People - Silver award which we achieved in 2016. We believe in nurturing talent, so if you’ve got aspirations to lead, you’ll want to know more about our in-house Leadership Development Programme.

One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to development. We all learn in different ways and respond to different styles. It’s what works for you, whether that’s on-the-job training, going on a course or conference, shadowing others or one-to-one support.

You’ll start off with a comprehensive induction into all things Merlin, and once you’re settled, we’ll start working on your Personal Development Programme. And if your role requires a professional qualification, we’ll pay your subs for you.
