Wiley Edge gives you the edge in your career.

Paid training. Ongoing support. Job opportunities with leading global employers. Our graduate program has helped over 3,000 graduates get a foot in the door in technology, banking and business.

You’ll start by training for 3-12 weeks at our Academy to prepare you for your role.

Once you’re up to speed with the latest skills and industry knowledge, we employ you throughout your 12-24-month placement with one of our clients. (We work with investment banks and other big companies in industries from healthcare to aviation to insurance.) You’ll get properly stuck in: it’s your chance to learn, grow and really make an impact. You’ll earn a salary increase every 6 months, progressing with help from a tailored online learning plan.

Afterwards, the vast majority of graduates continue their career with the client as a permanent employee. At Wiley Edge, we believe in fairness from the start. We don’t lock you in with exit fees. You’ll never have to pay a thing.

We also believe that potential exists everywhere. We hire from all universities and look beyond grades, opening doors to people from all backgrounds. The result? A supportive community of diverse graduates who are all going further, together.

We’re part of Wiley, a 2 billion dollar research, education and publishing company. Wiley has been unlocking human potential for over 200 years. At Wiley Edge, we’re doing this for graduates across the globe – bridging the skills gap to launch careers.

Broadening the universities we hire from has helped us build a diverse community where everyone belongs. No matter your background, we offer the support you need to feel confident, perform at your best, and bring your whole self to work.

Equality and diversity

How we're working to increase equality and diversity

  • Broadening opportunity: We hire from over 400 universities across the globe. We focus on your potential rather than the ‘prestige’ of education providers. We understand that people from underrepresented groups are often less likely to apply to tech roles. Therefore, our talent teams proactively reach out to people to encourage them to apply
  • Equality in training: Not everyone knows someone who works in the corporate world that can teach them the basics. So, our training and engagement teams train all graduates in the essential soft skills, such as CV writing and interview techniques, that are important when trying to land your first role.
  • Flexible support: Our talent, engagement, HR and training teams form a support network. They can help with extra time during assessments, additional soft skills training, or simply having someone to call any time for advice.
  • Fairness to all: Our structured salary and benefits package means all Alumni are paid equally, with salary increases every 6 months.
