Client Delivery Graduate Programme
On this programme, you’ll work with a client team to deliver business transformation. This will include designing, building and testing strategic solutions ready for implementation.
A key member of the team, you’ll focus and commit to understand client requirements, formulate a plan of action, and work with a range of onshore and offshore delivery teams to get it done. In close contact with the client at every stage, this role will make the most of your ability to communicate complex technologies, while handling third party suppliers, timelines and expectations.
What you’ll learn
Your credibility will depend on your passion for, and knowledge of, technology. So we’ll make sure your training covers the most advanced technology in the market. You’ll develop industry-leading specialist skills and be kept fully up to speed with the latest innovations and delivery practices. This could cover everything from software and emerging tech such as wearables, to cloud computing, digital, mobile, social or analytics. What’s more, because how we work is as important as what we work on, depending on your project, your structured training and learning could also cover business analysis, delivery methods, project and programme management as well as a range of industry certifications.
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 starting salary and a generous holiday allowance. Other benefits include a pension scheme, personal laptop, an AMEX card, private healthcare, subsidised gym membership, season ticket loan and much more besides.

What we’re looking for
You’ll need a university degree in any discipline, a passion for technology and excellent communication, project management and problem-solving skills. Overall, we’re looking for a willingness to develop, a creative mind and an interest in process improvement. If you know about programming, that would be a real bonus.
Ours is an industry that’s driven by client demand. Which means that we have to place people in the industries and geographies where our clients need them most. As well as being flexible, an open mind coupled with patience is a real bonus.
