We are looking to recruit around 20 graduates throughout the year across a number of intakes. As well as having a good academic background (As and Bs at A Level and 2:1 or above), a good CHP consultant has the ability to see an end goal, break down the steps to get there, and put in the effort to achieve it. Therefore, any hard-working and ambitious graduate can be successful as long as they have a logical mind, enjoy working as part of a team, have pride in the work that they do, and see their career immersed in the worlds of both technology and finance.
You will receive training at our London office in all things necessary to get you started on a project. You’ll then be working on a client site or based in the office, and your first role will typically involve software development. During a project, as well as the design and development of the software, we also need to modify business processes to ensure the client is working as effectively as possible, test that everything works, transfer all the data from the old system to ALFA, and provide support through the go-live process and into the future. During your career, you will spend time working in each of these areas. As you progress, you will develop particular abilities and interests and you can choose your training to support that.
CHP is established in the UK, US, Asia-Pacific and throughout Europe. You will be expected to work in locations in Europe and we see a steady flow of UK consultants on secondment further afield, so if this sounds like your kind of thing, we can make that happen too. With our ever-increasing geographic reach, knowledge of foreign languages is an added bonus, and we’ll even support you through learning a new one if you fancy some extra study.
We need our people to work hard but that doesn’t necessarily mean long hours. We only recruit people who we think will get on with each other, so the atmosphere is friendly and people genuinely enjoy doing things as a group. The whole company gets together every couple of months at our company meetings and we usually have a trip overseas for our Annual Conference, which is never lacking in fun. There are groups aplenty to join if you’re interested in activities like football, running, photography or squash.
