Digital Graduate Scheme

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

Become part of the team

We have designed three schemes which reflect the nature of how we work with our clients and the challenges they face. Within each 18-month scheme you will have the opportunity to rotate through up to three of our Capability teams building a variety of skills and experiences which will form the foundations of your consulting career.

You will receive a breadth of training over the 18-month programme and at the end of the scheme, you will be eligible for promotion to our Consultant Analyst rank.

Rotating through our Digital scheme will get you stuck into delivering some of the most advance solutions for clients, whether it’s shifting them to cloud platforms, building new digital sales channels or helping protect their business from advanced cyber threats. You will get an overview of the core components to moving organisations towards a digital future.

Rotations available on this scheme are:

  • Agile: we transform organisations from a traditional functional operating model to a contemporary value-stream one, making them more responsive, more customer centric and importantly better places to work. Our Capability is split into four pillars: Agile Transformation, Agile Delivery, Product Management and Business Analysis and you’ll have the chance to work across these four areas.
  • Cloud: we help clients create the infrastructure, organisation, capabilities and approaches they need. We take responsibility for the largest change programmes in government or commerce and we work shoulder to shoulder with our clients on every step of their transformation journey: starting from their business vision and objectives we design the strategy, define the delivery programme and execute the technical implementation.
  • Cyber Security: we work with organisations to manage, protect and make the most of their information assets to build strong brands and business models. This means demonstrating integrity in the way that data is handled and building confidence in their measures to mitigate cyber threats.
  • Software Development: you will work on an assortment of exciting projects providing innovative software solutions to our clients' most critical business issues. We'll look to you to provide high-level technical designs and to develop software in collaboration with business analysts and software architects. You will also work closely with test and DevOps specialists as well as service managers on automated software releases to production.
