Hit the ground running

Are you itching to get started in the big wide world of work? Are you fascinated by technology? Then you’re in the right place.

Our technology community is one of the best around and if you’re as excited about the possibilities the digital world opens up for the future as we are, we’d love you to be part of it. We have a whole host of graduate roles available – and you don’t need to have studied or worked in technology to join us in any of them:

In Change Management, you’ll look at what we’re doing right (so we can do more of it) and what we can improve upon (so we can rethink our approach). All using the power of technology – and your excellent problem-solving skills. Then there’s Software Development. As the name suggests, this is all about developing and releasing software that will keep us at the forefront of our industry. Meanwhile, in Infrastructure, Network and Operations Management, you would be part of a team pivotal to all of our technology and operations. Finally we have User Experience who are responsible for creating brilliant online experiences for our customers!

Wherever you join us, we’ll match you to a role that will fit your skills and interests, and give you huge scope to shape the future of our Technology team.

We currently have no open Technology graduate roles.

But keep checking back later – new roles are added every day.

Start your career right

You’ll be joining us in a graduate job, not on a graduate scheme. So expect to be in a permanent job from day one, without the departmental rotations of graduate schemes, but with all sorts of developmental opportunities tailored to you and your role. Expect a workplace centred around people – you, your colleagues and of course, our customers. And if you want to progress, you can. Simply show us what you can do, and we’ll be right behind you as you take on more and more responsibility, and shape the future of the industry.

At every level here, you’re empowered to be yourself. To take control of your own work and your own progression. And because we’ll put you first, every step of the way, you’ll be able to do the same for our customers.

Not to mention, you’ll have an excellent benefits package with us (but no spoilers yet)…

Different stories. One team.

What’s it like to be a graduate or apprentice in our tech team? We spoke to some of the people who are experiencing it for themselves right now. Watch our short video chat to see what they said.

What you can expect

We have technology graduate opportunities in lots of different roles, and we’ve grouped these into four broad ‘pathways’ so that you can choose the one that’s most suited to your skills, interests and aspirations. So choose the pathway you want to apply for and don’t worry if you’re not sure which specific role will suit you best as we can learn more about you during the process and help guide you in the right direction.

Our Change Management Graduate Pathway is suited to people who are naturally curious – big picture thinkers who aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo. If you enjoy organising, whether that’s information or people, and you like to influence thinking and the way things are done, this route could be a good match for you. Our roles in this area include:

  • Business Analyst (Bristol, Norwich or York) – Our Business Analysts capture requirements to drive solutions to meet customers’ needs, whilst being able to explain complex concepts and problems in a simple way. They analyse and evaluate business opportunities and identify areas for improvement. They also champion the use of technology to improve how we do things for our customers and our colleagues

  • DevOps Engineer (Norwich) – Our DevOps Engineers are responsible for developing and facilitating the improvement and optimisation of our software engineering practices and processes to speed up and automate the development, testing and release of our code to production. They don’t settle for ‘this is how we have always done it’; instead they are constantly looking for opportunities to improve and optimise how we use technology in our business and are laser focused on providing industry leading cloud capability.

Where you’ll be based

Most of our colleagues are working remotely at the moment but post Covid-19 we anticipate a blend of working from home and being in the office. Our graduate roles are in York, Norwich, Bristol, Perth and London depending on the role. We love working in these vibrant cities, and we’ll tell you why.

York is a city steeped in its ancient Viking roots. Walled by ancient brick, it is a beautiful place to live and work, which is why so many young hipsters have set up camp within the city.

Norwich is equally quaint, with many a cobbled alleyway meandering off the main high street. In 2020, the city was named as one of the UK’s Best Places to Live by The Sunday Times (for the third year in a row), so it’s a great time to join us in this lively eastern corner of England.

If you like your music, Bristol is the place for you. Hear the coolest musicians on the scene today at small, intimate gigs in lively bars across this cultured city. Take a stroll along the canals and enjoy the colourful street art that brings Bristol to life.

Or if it’s a river-side town surrounded by rolling green hills and wild Scottish countryside you’re after, then Perth is where you’ll want to work.

We also have two sites in London – Hoxton Square and St Helen’s. Hoxton Square is home to loads of similarly innovative companies, not to mention some very stylish bars and restaurants. Meanwhile, our St Helen’s offices are in the heart of The City, close to the stunning Leadenhall Market with its vibrant mix of independent boutiques, traditional pubs and eclectic restaurants.
