Bosses from Burger King are to visit Lancaster University to promote leadership careers within the fast food giant.

The company has opened the application process for its year-long 2014 EMEA Management Trainee Programme, which aims to recruit 20 graduates.

It is a scheme which hopes to give an insight into the challenges faced by the restaurant chain and the skills needed to overcome them.

Successful trainees will have the opportunity to rotate through different departments to understand the whole business.

A spokesman for Burger King said: “We will be visiting four universities in the UK, including the University of Lancaster, as well as other higher education institutes in other European countries, to give students presentations about the programme and to enlighten them on the opportunities this exciting prospect would give to them.”

The application process runs until April 6 and business leaders will also visit London Business School, Oxford and Cambridge.

The selection process includes online tests of logic and English skills with those passing given the chance to meet company directors face-to-face.
