Industrial placement
Locations: 
UK
Sectors: 
Technology: Consulting & Project Management
Deadline: 
31st December 2016

Overview 

The best thing – you can make your mark on the business world and focus on the commercial side of IBM.

What you’ll do – web design, problem diagnosis, database development, technical project management… there’s loads to get involved in. Whatever role you take, you’re likely to be designing, implementing and maintaining technical solutions for our clients. Our IT roles are based in several IBM locations across the UK, however, flexibility is essential. Some roles may require an amount of travel. This would be discussed at interview, but, we would expect candidates to be flexible.

What we look for

  • To begin with you should be interested in taking a year out as part of your degree and to be on target for at least a 2:1 in your honours degree.
  • You must also be in your penultimate year of study and be authorised to work in the UK for the whole placement too.
  • Whilst you don’t need a specific degree background to apply, you do need to be enthusiastic, with plenty of energy and passion for the areas of our business that you’re applying for. Never fear, if you haven’t studied business or IT, we’re all about the person, not about their background.
  • University Placements are for a minimum of 1 year and must form part of your degree - normally prior to the final year of study.
  • University Placements run from June/July/August 2017 for 12 months.
