“There’s always something new to work on, and new technologies to integrate into our products, which is really fun!” - Sophie, Technology and Innovation graduate

How are you going to get there?

Essentially, you should have a 2.1 or above degree in any discipline – we’re looking for talented individuals above specific qualifications, although a STEM based degree such as Engineering, Computing or Science would be useful.

We want graduates who are insatiably curious and devils for detail, with the confidence to share their thoughts and even challenge the ways we work. Our successful candidates should be natural leaders who are capable of collaborating with others and coming up with ideas that will inspire and influence our senior leaders.

Ultimately, you’ll be shaping the future of our business as well as your leadership career. The qualities we are seeking from our next generation of leaders are:

Co-creators who can develop and execute strategies

Entrepreneurs that are relentless in their drive for results

Innovators who strive to meet our customers’ future needs

Inspirational leaders with outstanding communication, organisational and analytical skills

It's most likely that you’ll be based in Reading or Birmingham, although there are also potential opportunities to experience exciting international cities such as Amsterdam! So, don’t forget your toothbrush as our graduates should be willing to travel and relocate according to the demands of the business – and speak fluent English.

So, what can we do for you?

We’ll give you a rock-solid grounding in the business that will bolster your career for years to come as well as the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded colleagues across Europe and even visit some different countries too.

As well as the first-hand experience and on-the-job training that our placements provide, we’re also committed to caring for your continued career development. And, if you’re up for it, we’ll help you achieve professional registration with IEng to become a chartered engineer.

If you’d like to join our talented designers, engineers and architects and become responsible for developing groundbreaking products, amazing apps used by millions and, of course, some of the fastest broadband speeds on the planet why not apply now?
