If your graduation is soon enough and you are looking for the best graduate scheme, you’re on the right page. There is a list of top 50 best places to work in the UK  featured by ClassDoor’s Employees’ Choice Awards. Read on to know how to get the most suitable job place in one of the leading UK’s companies.

1.Google

2018 has already become a successful year for Google as the previous year ranked the thirteenth position for the company. Reaching the first place Google is described as the company where the employees are trusted. On the first day of work, you will be surprised how much you will be shown. Employees share confidential information. Each employee knows what's going on in the company. This approach contributes to increase positive team spirit, lack of intrigue and competition.

Of course, such approach seems like a terrible dream for most companies. They can be understood, but Google emphasizes "Our people are our greatest value." And it works!

Google's Guide does not control every employee's step. Even more, under certain conditions, they are allowed to be free in their thoughts and actions. This increases the ability to work among subordinates. One can only imagine how it works when nobody is "above you" and does not indicate how to do better. After all, for some people, control limits the ability to do their job effectively.

2.Anglian Water

Anglian Water is the company which supplies water to the eastern counties of the UK.
