Technology Graduate Scheme - Edinburgh

Job description

Our company is transforming, and we are working hard to build a technology foundation fit for a modern, digital, insight-led, responsive business. This means we are looking for the next generation of software engineers who will help us drive our organisation forward.

To give you a flavour of the work you might be involved in, we are organised in multi-disciplined agile teams aligned to our investment capabilities: investment data, investment process, investment office solutions, dealing and execution, derivatives and new instruments, operational pPlatform, risk and performance, regulation and controls, and data platform. As part of your rotations, you could be paired with a senior developer to deliver a feature on an existing application, which might involve coding in Java, C# or JavaScript, working on the Microsoft Azure Cloud platform, maintaining and developing components such as functions, web apps or logic apps or optimising our DevOps process, such as writing automation scripts. You’ll be working closely with team members from other disciplines, such as analysts and scrum masters, estimating stories and planning out work, and participating in design and architecture solutioning. You will be on the scheme for 18 months before you roll off permanently into a team.

The work we do will give you the opportunity to be exposed to a broad and interesting technology stack primarily based in the cloud. You may want to specialise in automated testing, engineering or dev-ops but you will be a part of a close-knit team focused on agile, continuous improvement, and secure high- quality software delivery We offer a wide range of exposure and growth opportunities, focused on your individual strengths and interests.

We have a strong culture of accountability, collaboration and continuous improvement, and we work closely with the teams we support to understand how technology solutions can best support our growth ambitions and are delivered promptly. Having recently implemented Aladdin (the largest programme we have ever delivered and one of the largest in the City) we are now working towards building an efficient, scalable technology platform for our future growth, including replacing our older technology and simplifying our architecture.

Join M&GPrudential’s Technology Graduate Scheme and you’ll join a hive of innovation.

What you can expect
You will receive comprehensive training starting with a five-week introductory programme. Graduates on this scheme complete their induction by obtaining the Investment Management Certificate (IMC). If desired, you can work towards further qualifications such as becoming a certified Microsoft Azure specialist and many more. You will receive regular feedback through rotation appraisals, have a vast support network including a buddy from a previous cohort, a mentor from the business, and access to in-house training opportunities.

At M&GPrudential Diversity and Inclusion is a strategic objective. We know that an inclusive environment makes us more accessible and ensures we attract, engage, promote and retain exceptional people. We welcome applications from all individuals regardless of age, gender/gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity/nationally, disability, or military service and welcome those who have taken career breaks. We will consider flexible working arrangements for any of our roles.

What we are looking for

We are thinkers, doers, programmers, collaborators, communicators and planners. We are agile, bold and resilient. We investigate, analyse and think critically.

We champion our ideas and are, at the same time, comfortable to have these ideas challenged. Some of us are technical experts, others of us have different experiences to offer. Our days are rarely the same.

We have a genuine passion for technology and transformation and our customers are at the heart of what we do. We cast our net wide as we want to recruit a broad range of degree disciplines and from diverse backgrounds.
