The two-year Graduate Development Programme in Information Systems (IS) works with graduates who are seeking an exciting development opportunity in the field of Information Technology or Systems whilst learning about the wider business process and developing key management and leadership skills.
As a Graduate within IS, you will undertake a number of rotational placements over a two-year period, this will include either one overseas placement or a placement in the UK as part of a specialist project team. During the programme, you will gain an appreciation of various business technology processes from start to finish. You will work at a strategic level, understanding the departments KPI’s and objectives and how this strategy fits with the wider business on achieving the five-year business plan.
A mentor will be supporting you for the duration of the programme who will advise, support and guide you in your personal and career development. You will have a direct line manager in each placement who you will report to during the placement; you will also have regular reviews with the Early Careers Lead. A role post the Graduate Programme will be discussed throughout the programme in line with current business activity and growth and the areas that your skills and ambitions are best suited to.
