Job description

Application Development Summer Placement
This ten-week placement in summer 2019 is your opportunity to work across the whole software development lifecycle. You’ll be joining an Application Development team that creates software solutions to make our business work better and smarter into the future. We work with advanced technologies like HTML5, JavaScript, ASP.NET Core, Oracle SQL and PL/SQL, and C#.

Following a week’s induction, you and your fellow intern will work together on a real business project as you take responsibility for the full lifecycle - from the initial brief to project planning, programming, testing and delivery. At every stage, you’ll meet with our experienced technical and business leaders who will support you throughout the process.

Running alongside your project, you will have a range of development opportunities with other teams in the department. So as you spend time with experts, you will be able to apply what you learn directly to your project.

Technical Infrastructure 12-15 Month Placement
This 12 to 15 month paid placement starting in summer 2019 has been designed for students in IT-related disciplines. You’ll be a key member of our team from the word go, doing real work and taking real responsibility as you get your hands on the latest technology and explore what’s emerging.

More than that though, the focus here is understanding how those new and exciting technologies can be applied to solve today’s business challenges. We work with major vendors including Microsoft, Cisco, Apple, Dell EMC, VMware, Palo Alto and Splunk. So yes, we’ll help you gain the kind of experience that will make your CV stand out from the crowd.

Starting with a structured induction that’ll give you a full overview of our business, you’ll move on to the IT Service Desk and then rotate around our Data Centre and Operations and Integration and Optimisation teams. You’ll also be involved in some key projects in both teams, finishing off with a return to the IT Service Desk to consolidate everything you’ve learned. Working within this collaborative, innovative and co-operative environment, you can look forward to full and ongoing training, plus support from an experienced mentor.

Salary

  • Application Development placement: salary of £18,000 pro rata
  • Technical Infrastructure placement: salary of £20,000 plus bonus
  • We also offer £500 to assist with relocation costs (if applicable)

What we are looking for

Application Development
Now in your penultimate year of study for a software development related degree, you’re fascinated by emerging technology and keen to explore its potential. So when you apply, we want you to tell us about any websites or apps you’ve built, blogs you’ve written or technical forums you’ve contributed to. Show us your problem solving approach to technical challenges too. We’re looking for well-rounded individuals who have a positive approach - and as your project will be a web-based application, you will need to know your way around web technologies

Technical Infrastructure
You already have lots of ideas about how technology can support business performance, and you’ll want to see that in action. We like people who quickly become part of our team and who enjoy taking on responsibility and developing their practical skills and commercial understanding.
