Technical Leadership: Digital Technology

What you’ll be doing

Over three nine month placements you really get under the skin of our Information Systems (IS). As part of the team you help us embed customers at the heart of everything we do, while driving excellence and continual innovation.  This is Fluid Thinking in technology.  You’ll be helping to build sustainable growth that changes the market for the better and will make Severn Trent a fantastic place to work. These are our objectives and we’re pursuing them from many angles. You’re intrinsic to us getting there and your talent, ideas and insight will help to make it happen; affecting millions of lives in the process.

Where we’ll take you

Whilst you’re on the programme you’ll receive IS-related training - as well as our more general business-wide training scheme, and have the chance to gain formal qualifications in relevant subjects.  This will give you the foundation of knowledge you need to step into a permanent role with Severn Trent.  

As you progress we’ll encourage you to explore our business and try out a range of different roles which could include anything from business analysis to application design.  In doing so, you’ll build a progressional network which will help you to drive your development in the short-term whilst giving you the option to move into different area of the business in the future.  You’ll have exposure to some of our major external suppliers.

What we’re looking for

  • A Computing or Business-related degree with any grade qualification
  • Confidence to share new ideas with an ambition to become a technical expert
  • Strong customer focus with the ability to build effective business relationships
  • Sharp commercial thinking and ability to use judgment
