Digital, Technology & Data Graduate Programme

Job description

Transforming the Bank is a key strategic driver for Bank of Ireland. Underpinning this concept are our technology platforms, data, and the digital platforms customers use to interact with and purchase our products.

We offer Graduate Programme streams that develop the key skills that will enable Bank of Ireland to grow sustainably into the future.

Key skills areas include Data, Project Management / Agile, Development & Cloud, Robotics & Automation, Change & Transformation, and Digital Experience Design.

When applying, you will have the opportunity to express your key areas of interest.

The Programme

Each programme stream offers a rotational experience across different areas in the Bank. Each rotation is specifically developed to enable Graduates to develop the vital skills to accelerate your development and growth.

During your three rotations, you will build strong management, interpersonal and technical skills, as well as getting exposure to business critical projects in a fast paced environment.

You are empowered throughout to seek new experiences and expand your network through cross collaboration. We encourage you to experience different areas of the business, or to contribute to substantial transformation projects that support our Group strategy.

Your final rotation will see accelerated responsibility in your role, applying your learning to date. You will also cap the experience off by taking part in a Graduate project challenge which is supported with funded prizes.

The opportunity

As part of the programme you will gain exposure to colleagues across numerous business areas, allowing you to build a substantial network in different disciplines.

Through our unique Digital Academy, you will also be able to explore opportunities and future career paths, as well as receiving top-class mentoring through the Bank of Ireland Mentorship Programme.

Members of the Graduate Programme have strong visibility in Bank of Ireland with regular touchpoints with Leadership, including the CEO and Executive Committee.

Our Graduate Programme is often a feeder into one of Bank of Ireland`s talent programmes which are crafted to accelerate the growth of identified high-performing individuals.

What you will get in return

Each Graduate will embark on a tailored two-year Digital Development Plan to uplift digital skills and capabilities to ensure they are equipped for the Future of Work.

Our hybrid working model offers colleagues greater flexibility in how and where they work, meaning that the traditional 9 - 5 office base will be less prevalent, with work from home, digital collaboration and hot desking options commonplace.

Our Graduates build an outstanding community in Bank of Ireland, and while we are working in a less face to face environment, Graduates will have their own Digital Hangout, which makes it easy to interact, socialise and share ideas with other Graduates.

What we are looking for

We don`t look for any specific technical fields of study in order for you to be successful. We are interested in speaking with a diverse range of people from various academic, societal and geographical backgrounds that will inspire and help us grow as a bank.

We offer opportunities to students who have achieved, or expect to achieve, an undergraduate or Master`s degree from all disciplines.
