What’s it like?

From developing augmented reality prototypes to introducing clients to technology that can improve their business, Lauren’s work on an industrial placement is never dull.

How’s it structured?

Over the course of a year, you’ll have access to loads of different experiences and learning opportunities. You might work as an advisor on one task and help with a hands-on digital setup the next!

If you join Financial Services (FS) you’ll work on a variety of projects for leading global financial services clients and will be encouraged and expected to take responsibility for your projects. If you join UK & Ireland (UK&I), you’ll learn to combine your tech knowledge with business experience across entire organisations or specific areas like finance, operations or risk functions. There’s no limit to what you can get involved in and all along the way you’ll be supported by your team.

At the end of the year, if you’re great at your job, you could be asked to join one of our graduate programmes once you’ve finished uni.
