Software Engineering Graduate Programme

Use your passion, expertise, judgement and in-depth understanding of technical capabilities to help us create winning solutions.

INTRODUCTION

You will help drive and deliver business transformation for our clients around the world through designing, building, testing and deploying strategic solutions for them. At the same time, you will develop industry-leading specialist skills and gain real in-depth knowledge across businesses and technologies.

As an Associate, you’ll be designing, building and supporting the innovative technical solutions we’re renowned for. As well as understanding what our clients want to achieve, you’ll discover what’s possible within their existing framework and explore the best technologies to achieve the most effective results. Working with onshore and offshore teams, you’ll work on a variety of challenging projects for a range of clients, across a range of industries.

As a Software Engineering Associate, you’ll need a degree in computer science, software engineering or a technology-related area of study is typical. However, if you have a real passion for technology and can demonstrate an understanding of how it can be used, we will consider a non-STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths) degree. A real interest in software engineering and end-to-end design and delivery is beneficial, and you’ll know a thing or two about programming.

Applications for our London programme are open and close on 22nd November 2019. Places are filled on a first-come, first-served basis – please apply early to avoid disappointment.

Applications for our Edinburgh and Manchester programmes are now closed.

The first part of the process is to fill out an application profile which includes a psychometric questionnaire. Along with attaching your most up to date CV, we will ask you to provide some details of your background, experience, skills and education. Although this stage can be completed in under 10 minutes, you can exit and revisit the page as many times as you like before submitting. If your profile meets our role requirements and is identified as a good fit for the company and our culture, we will progress you through to the next stage.

You will then be asked to complete a series of short online assessments. This stage gives you the opportunity to prove your cognitive and functional ability, tech acuity and business acumen. From start to finish the assessments should take no longer than 1 hour to complete. Since they are untimed, you are welcome to start and stop the assessments as you wish and complete them at your leisure. If you excel across all areas, we will then progress you to the third and final stage.
