For Software Engineering, IT skills are essential. You will need a degree in IT, computer science, or a technology-related subject. However, if you have a real passion and flair for technology, as well as an understanding of how it can be used, we will consider a maths, science, or engineering degree. We expect you to have a real interest in software engineering and end-to-end design and delivery, and you’ll know a thing or two about programming.
If you are successful, you will need to be available for start dates between October 2021 and May 2022.

You will need to live within commutable distance of your home office which will be Edinburgh.

Places are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. So please apply early to avoid disappointment.
