KTP - benefits for graduates
The right KTP Associate is the key to delivering a first class project and so we work hard with our company partners to identify the right candidate for every job.
KTP Associates are employed by the University, but contracted to work in a particular company, to deliver the KTP project. The recruitment process is carried out jointly and at the company premises.
KTP jobs are advertised on the main University of Salford website. In order to be considered, all applications must be submitted via our online system.
Salary and Other Benefits
As a KTP Associate, your salary will be decided by the company, in line with industry standards and with any other company employees at a similar level. In addition to salary, an Associate on a standard two-year KTP project will also have access to over £8,000 for professional development and travel.
Training & development requirements are agreed with your academic and company supervisors, to ensure that any skills gaps are addressed at an early stage. You will also attend two one-week residential training modules to equip you with the project management skills that will enable you to manage your project and get the most from the people and resources around you.
As a University employee, you will also have access to staff training courses, library and sports facilities, as well as the option to join the University Pension Scheme.
