We are looking for enthusiastic and eager to learn graduates with the ability to adapt to join the IT graduate programme. The scheme aims to provide the successful applicant with a strong commercial grounding and an introduction to Information Technology within a FTSE 100 business.
The IT Graduate Programme (ITGP) runs for a period of two years in which the graduate will receive a mixture of both operational and IT experiences working in the IT department, whilst actively working closely with our 5,000 business colleagues.
The graduate will also gain professional development for both soft and hard skills through attending internal and external training programmes, such as, IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and Managing Successful Programmes (MSP).
In addition, we will also support the graduate to maintain their continuous professional development record with the BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT.
The aim of the scheme is to place graduates into permanent management positions at the end of a 2 year programme and for those outstanding individuals fast track your development to a leadership role within 5 years.
The programme consists of three rotations:
- IT Partnering: 4 months
- IT Business Change: 8 months
- IT Service Management: 12 months
The graduate will commence in the IT Partnering teams where they will learn about the business as a whole, and subsequently, they will undertake a role on project delivery and conclude with providing a Business as Usual IT service to the business. Each rotation is spent within the IT department but working in collaboration with our head office and regional business units.
Successful applicants will have:
- 2:1 degree or above (IT related degree preferred but not essential)
- Analytical and problem solving skills
- Awareness of technologies, e.g. Microsoft Office, Cloud, ERP, Digital/Social
- Full driving license and access to a car
