The scheme aims to provide the successful applicant with a strong commercial grounding and an introduction to Information Technology within a FTSE 100 business. The IT Graduate Programme (ITGP) runs for a period of two years in which the graduate will receive a mixture of both operational and IT experiences working in the IT department, whilst actively working closely with our 5,000 business colleagues.

The graduate will also gain professional development for both soft and hard skills through attending internal and external training programmes, for example, IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and Managing Successful Programmes (MSP).

In addition, we will also support the graduate to maintain their continuous professional development record with the BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT.
