What will I be doing?

The Graduate scheme will run for two years and will include a fast start onboarding into roles within our organisation allowing you to make a significant contribution to our business quickly.
You will rotate through multiple assignments with us during the two years and be part of the team that develops products for different market segments to enable business builders run their businesses.
As well as encouraging innovation and agility we also look to embrace the latest technologies to provide ever increasing business benefits to our customers in 23 countries worldwide.
Sage is the market leader for integrated accounting, payroll and payment systems, supporting the ambition of the world’s entrepreneurs.
Like many of the businesses we serve, Sage began as a small business and has grown beyond what seemed imaginable. Today over 13,000 colleagues now support millions of entrepreneurs across 23 countries as they power the global economy.
It is these entrepreneurs who are the drivers of prosperity and it’s our privilege and honour to serve them. We take real pride from how many of our customers have flourished and, that our products have grown with them as they moved from start-up to successful, international businesses.
In a world where only the voices of the biggest are heard, we will always fight to hear the voice of the entrepreneur.
An innovator today and tomorrow
Our smart people use the smartest technology to reinvent and simplify business accounting - working with a thriving community of entrepreneurs, business owners, tradespeople, accountants, partners and developers.
We enable our customers to focus on their business and help them to leapfrog to the future.
Inventing the future
We are changing the way that millions of businesses track the movement of money through their business. We are also changing the way we do business. And as a FTSE 100 business we believe in a socially-responsible world and we are active in supporting our local communities and invest in making a real difference through the philanthropy of the Sage Foundation. Our Sage Foundation is based on the 2+2+2 model - 2% of free cash flow, 2% of colleagues' time and up to two free products each year to charitable organisations. Colleagues are empowered to give to the causes that matter to them.
Our customers make life-sacrifices. They take risks to follow their dreams and pursue their passions and, on this, global prosperity is built. They deserve a bigger voice and we will always work hard to champion this noble cause.
Skills or experience in application development would be advantageous but more important is your enthusiasm and commitment, and your ability to work within a team to deliver results in a major software development company.
You'll have a keen eye for detail and an inquisitive mind. You'll be able to demonstrate resilience and determination whilst remaining flexible and responsive to the changing demands of a fast paced environment. You'll enjoy working as part of a well-integrated team and must have good listening, verbal and written communication skills. You will be mentored and supported by an experienced developer throughout the year but will be encouraged to play a full role in the development process.
