A Message from Program Director, George Cook

A random meeting led to an unexpected opportunity to work in Arizona in the 1990s. After that, I found working in the States so rewarding that I made it my second home. Contact us today to learn more about Cumming and our program to help you begin your career in America!

“I had long wanted to experience life in the U.S., and Cumming made that possible. They helped me with the Visa process, covered the cost of my relocation, and have been there every step of the way to ensure that I’m happy and successful in my new role here in San Francisco.”

How Will It Work?

For your first year, you will be based in Scotland working under George Cook, who manages the Graduate Program for Cumming. You will be assigned to U.S. projects, and will receive both instructional training as well as direct on-the-job experience as you begin contributing to our company’s efforts on those projects. Although based in Scotland, you will have access to mentors companywide, and will quickly learn the ins and outs of U.S. markets, costs, and work practices. While in the UK, we will help you initiate and navigate the visa process; when that is finalized, you will be relocated to America to begin your new role in one of our established offices. Locations could include Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Chicago, among many others.
