Your future in consulting starts here.
Taking the first step in your consulting career is a huge thing; you want to make sure you’re choosing an organisation and a graduate programme where you can be yourself and thrive. If this sounds like you, IBM’s award-winning global graduate consulting programme - Consulting by Degrees - is for you!
We have loads of innovative tech you can play with – AI, robotics and Blockchain to name but a few. But IBM is so much more than that. Joining our 2-year Consulting by Degrees programme as a business, design, technology or strategic analytics consultant you will gain skills and experience, developing your expertise in the areas that match your passions and aspirations.
You will be guided through our graduate programme, giving you the confidence to realise your potential. It all starts with a European induction in which you and your peers come up with a solution to a client problem and work through all the steps that you would do in real life. You’ll rapidly build your consulting skills and your understanding of business and technology. We’ll equip you for client work and set the scene for what consulting life is all about.
Once induction finishes you’ll join a project team. You’ll travel to the client’s office which may be close to home or further afield. Over the 2-years you’ll undertake a variety of assignments that will run across a range of timeframes from three months to a year. We’ll provide you with a rich mix of experience and the opportunity for accelerated career growth. All our clients are household names and you'll be part of projects making an impact on everyday life, making the world work better.
IBM offers limitless opportunity to expand your knowledge and improve your skills. You’ll develop a great CV and earn digital badges and certifications. You may or may not describe yourself as technical but what you will have is a keen interest in learning more about how technology is disrupting organisations and industries and changing how the world itself works. As well as training and continuous on-the-job learning, you’ll also benefit from personalised coaching from your Consulting by Degrees Manager, mentors and Project Manager.
If you love working with people and you thrive in a collaborative culture then you’ll fit right in to the Consulting by Degrees programme. Perhaps you’re also a bit of a social butterfly. You’ll always be meeting new people inside and outside of IBM at all stages of their career. We offer plenty of opportunities to socialise, join sports teams and take part in activities aligned to your particular interests. You can explore the hundreds of inclusive organizations and community programs that promote the IBM values of social and corporate responsibility. From day 1 you’ll join a vibrant graduate community. The highlight of the Consulting by Degrees social calendar is an annual ball, a real celebration of everyone’s achievements throughout the year.
With Graduate salaries starting at £30k, a flexible benefits package and fantastic development opportunities you’ll have everything to shape the kind of career you desire and become who you want to be.
