Safran is excited to launch its 2023 Graduate scheme in partnership with Roxel, and is looking for an inquisitive, quality focused person to join our Information Systems department. If this sounds like you, then we’d love to hear from you!

You’ll complete these placements alongside our own Finance Graduate training programme, coordinated by Safran University.

The individual placements will offer you a wide range of opportunities - you may find yourself at the heart of our operation, working on services and projects which secure our data and systems from external attacks, or supporting the design and implementation of new systems based the latest technology available in both cloud and hybrid cloud.
