Sopra Steria Graduates

Graduates are a really important part of our strategy.

The programme

Your first placement will start as soon as your induction is completed, so you’ll have the opportunity to make an impact throughout the 2 year programme. If you’re looking to change the future and challenge current thinking through business solutions, then this is the programme for you.

Across your 3 placements, you’ll explore the full business life cycle; developing skills in consulting, business analysis, project management and business development. As well as regular access to senior industry experts, you will learn through a variety of innovative, hands-on work, giving you an unparalleled level of responsibility.

Your placements will cross different industry sectors (Financial Services, Commercial, Government, Aerospace, Defence & Security) and our groundbreaking joint ventures (NHS Shared Business Service and Shared Services working alongside the Cabinet Office and Government).

With a fast progression path, your placements will be complemented with a variety of courses and ‘live’ case studies to develop your soft skills and help you build your consulting knowledge. In addition to our thorough internal training offering, you will become an externally certified Agile BA and Practitioner as well as acquiring a yellow belt in LEAN.

You’ll need to be open to travelling a lot of the time but in return you’ll get see a wide variety of clients and offices, and do a lot of different projects. You’ll have a home location where you’ll be based when not travelling. Your home base could be: London, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Manchester, Reading or Hemel Hempstead.

We will also be looking for the following:

  • An excellent communicator, you’ll be able to build effective and collaborative relationships across your internal and external network.
