'I graduated in July 2016 from Nottingham Trent University with a first class Business Management and Marketing Honours degree and joined CSC/DXC in October 2016. During my time with DXC, I have been fortunate enough to be involved in a variety of projects from supporting an implementation of a patient flow system, driving through a national programme and creating a graduate led sales campaign. DXC’s healthcare footprint is huge, we’re supplying top class healthcare solutions to 75% of English hospitals, 85% of Welsh Boards, 50% of Scottish Health Boards and all of Northern Ireland. DXC has enabled me to explore different opportunities and learn about healthcare both in the UK and overseas. I am looking forward to see what opportunities arise post the graduate scheme and how DXC and I can continue to grow.' Jordan D., Healthcare and Life Sciences graduate 2016.

'In my Final year at Sheffield Hallam University studying my Mechanical Engineering (BEng) , I applied for the Applications and Development in healthcare graduate scheme within DXC. After passing various assessments, I was accepted by DXC to start for October 2016. During my time here, I have manged to gain knowledge around how technology has revolutionised the Health care Sector. My initial starting role was working with a healthcare CTO which gave me a broad of the business as a whole. This role challenged me to learn an industry I was not previously familiar with and began my journey in Project Management. I was immediately given responsibility to lead teams and develop materials for an international expo. My next role gave me opportunity to work directly with NHS trusts and NHS digital to project manage a large data migration exercise across the country. I am now currently part of the team deploying pioneering new systems within First of Type trust across the UK to change how healthcare operates today. DXC technology ‘thrives on change’ and enables the graduate community to be in the driver’s seat.' Phil S., Healthcare and Life Sciences graduate 2016.

'After graduating The University of Sheffield with an MSc in Health Informatics, I still felt I was lacking direction in terms of a career. I chose the Healthcare graduate scheme at DXC because of the opportunity to gain insight into many different areas of the business and my experience over the last two years has been invaluable. As a graduate I have been pushed to work in roles that I previously thought were out of my reach and this has really helped me grow in confidence. Despite having a healthcare degree, I hadn’t realised the extent of work that goes into delivering effective healthcare systems until joining DXC. One of the most valuable aspects of the scheme for me personally has been the mentoring programme, which has given me exposure to Healthcare as a business from an executive level which was a new perspective for me.' Becky G., Healthcare and Life Sciences graduate 2016.
