Technology Industrial Placement
Our Technology Industrial Placement has been designed specifically for budding technology specialists. You will apply for our Software Engineering programme. It’s a 12-month placement and starts with a formal induction and a four-week training programme where you’ll study technologies including Java, Digital, Dev Ops and testing. We’ll then assign you to a project where you’ll build your skills on the job based on which programme you have applied for.
By the end of the year, you could be ICTTech-certified – you’ll certainly have gained some valuable experience and hopefully have an offer to join us when you graduate.
What’s in it for you
As well as the prospect of a great career centred around improving the way the world works and lives, you can look forward to a competitive salary and other benefits. These may include generous holiday allowance, an interest-free season ticket loan, subsidised gym membership and a personal laptop. You’ll also be part of a vibrant graduate community with training, support and social events.
What we’re looking for
This placement is undertaken in the third year of a four-year course and you will need to apply in your second year. You’ll may be studying towards a degree in a subject such as computer science or another technology-focused discipline, although we also welcome applications from students with maths/science/engineering related bachelor degrees. We do consider all degree backgrounds if you can demonstrate a passion to technology.
You’ll have a real passion for technology and how it can be used. This may even have led you to gain exposure in programming languages such as C++, SQL, Java, Visual Basic or .NET, and operating systems such as Unix. Overall, we’re looking for a willingness to try new things, a desire for self-improvement and a strong work ethic.
Where you’ll work
You’ll apply to our office in London and may be delivering projects on client sites anywhere in the UK (and sometimes abroad). You’ll need to be prepared to travel and be flexible.
How to apply
