Empowering people, enabling Innovation
Do you have a passion for IT and a strong commitment to get the job done well?
We are looking for driven graduates who can think outside the box, go the extra mile and who never shy away from achieving the end goal!
If you have strong influencing abilities and enjoy working with people at different levels, then Edwards could be the place for you!
Today everything is digital, from the way we work to the way we consume information. Everything is connected, highly personalised and most importantly, customer expectations are set much higher.
Edwards is the brand name our customers have come to trust and rely upon, but we are also part of the much bigger Atlas Copco Group which consists of four global Business Areas including Vacuum Technique. Vacuum Technique has a central Information Systems organisation (VTIS) enabling digital and process innovation. As well as managing global infrastructure and security, we manage and control a large portfolio of projects to enable the VT vision. We achieve this by supporting, developing and rolling out business applications and systems.
With an ever-increasing amount of automation and integration, it is critical that VTIS is fully aligned and ready to support the business area to deliver its growth plans and develop our people to become the digital thinkers of the future.
One of our greatest strengths is the diversity of our workforce with people of all educational and cultural backgrounds working together. We believe that talent and diversity is the key to success and that everybody should feel valued and able to reach their full potential, both in their development and their contribution to the business. Big thinkers. Inspiring designs. With the Edwards Graduate Programme, you could become a member of our world-class team our customers turn to.
The Information Technology & Business Graduate Programme in VTIS provides recent graduates with an exciting development opportunity to develop their skills in IT and Business. Over a number of different placements, our graduate programme will teach you about the wider business processes and enable you to develop key project management, business analysis and leadership skills in an IT environment.
As a Graduate within VTIS you’ll be based at our global headquarters in Sussex, a short distance from the vibrant seaside city of Brighton and Hove, where you’ll work at a strategic level as part of our truly global team. You will undertake several rotational placements over a two-year period – this could include an overseas placement and an out-of-function rotation in the business itself. During the programme, you will gain an appreciation of various business technology processes from start to finish.
Here you’re empowered to explore opportunities and drive your professional development. Our graduates have access to all the training, learning and assistance you need to become a specialist in your area of expertise.
As a Graduate in VTIS, you will be based in our Global Headquarters and Technology Centre in Burgess Hill (Sussex), a short drive away from the vibrant seaside city of Brighton and Hove.
You could also find yourself undertaking at least one placement in one of our other UK or Global sites.
