In an organisation that places collaboration and innovation at the heart of success, people are paramount. This programme is for students who take an industrial gap year as part of a four-year degree. During your 12 months with us, you’ll gain both real-life project experience and a genuine insight into our business. You’ll also have the chance to showcase your talents. Perform well, and we may even offer you a graduate position for the following year.
You’ll carry out the same kind of work and gain the same kind of client exposure as our graduate recruits. As well as practical experience, you’ll also get a flavour of what our graduate programme is really like. Your application form will be based on the one we use for our graduate programme, and you’ll go through exactly the same assessment and interview process. You’ll even attend the same induction with the graduates. There will also be a dedicated event for you to network and make contacts.
We currently have open vacancies in 3 of our business areas for start over the summer in Edinburgh, Leatherhead or Reading. We'll also offer a relocation allowance of up to £1,000 to anyone moving to work for us! (Subject to our Student Relocation Policy)
While we predominantly recruit IPs studying technical (IT) degrees we do have some roles for more business focused graduates too. Full descriptions of what each business area does can be found on our website.
