The package includes 25 days holiday, an interest free loan, private medical insurance, a pension plan and a range of flexible benefits.

Yes, we offer both 3 month and 12 month internships for penultimate year students, across a range of business and technical roles. All internships are paid at £18,000 (or £20,000 in London). For more details about our internship programme and current opportunities please visit

Will I be able to travel abroad?

We’re specifically recruiting for positions in the UK, and expect applicants to be prepared to work here for a number of years. However, we are a global company and opportunities for working abroad do sometimes arise. Some parts of the business have more opportunities than others to work abroad, so we can’t guarantee the chance to do so.

When will I start?

Start dates vary according to which part of the business you join. Generally our Graduate intake dates are in June, and September - November, although it can be possible to start earlier. Intern start dates are generally June or July for our three-month internships or September for our 12-month internships. Dates may vary according to which part of the business you join and depending on your own availability. Your starting date will take your personal preference into account wherever possible.

What’s your equality and diversity policy?

We’re a global company with a good mix of male and female staff from a broad range of countries, religions, ethnicities and lifestyles. We work hard to ensure our people are as diverse as the activities we perform.

If you have certain special requirements, or are having difficulty applying due to a disability, please let us know as soon as possible and we’ll make sure we accommodate you. Rest assured, it will not affect your application. Atos has a policy of equality both in our recruitment process, and once you’ve joined us.

Are all applications online?

Yes, please apply online - you will find the link on our profile. Due to the volume of applications we receive, we have to manage all applications in one place and so can’t accept paper applications or CVs. Let us know if you’re having problems applying due to a disability, and we’ll ensure that you’re able to complete your application.

Do you pay relocation expenses?

We reimburse reasonable relocation expenses for our Graduate programme, which need to be approved upfront by your future line manager and supported by receipts.

Can I state a preferred location?

We recruit for roles across a range of locations and will consider your preferences. You’ll need to be flexible, as some roles will require you to be away from your base location for extended periods at customers’ sites. For other roles, you’ll spend more time in your base location, but you should still be prepared to work away on occasions.

What training do you provide?

All graduates attend our intensive, two-week induction programme, with follow-up training throughout the 18-month scheme. You can also expect full support with soft skills and commercial and technical training to enable you to succeed in your role. 

Our 12-month interns attend a three-day residential induction that offers training on a range of key business and personal skills. This will help you settle into your internship quickly and ensure that you get the most out of your time with us. Specific training will vary with each role, but you can be assured that you will receive full support with soft skills, commercial and technical training to enable you to succeed in your internship.

Do you accept applications from non-UK graduates and interns?

We welcome applications from any candidate, regardless of background or country of study, in accordance with our equal opportunities policy. Please be advised, Atos do not offer visa sponsorship, so you do need to have the right to work in the UK. Please note that some of our roles may require you to have indefinite leave to remain in the UK and to have been a resident in the UK for at least five years. If you are likely to receive an offer and you are unable to meet these criteria we will do our best to find you another role on our graduate scheme.
