Our Newcastle head office has been working with local universities to support placement year students gain experience linked to their degree course. It is a great opportunity for us to support students, bring the latest teaching methods and knowledge into our business, and help us grow and support our customers.
Our internship opportunities are within our Products & Services and Information Services departments, and are open to anyone looking for a placement.
Within our Information Services Department we provide a range of opportunities, including: building and supporting servers in a controlled secure environment using a variety of operating systems and database technologies; working with Networking and Telecoms engineers on hardware installations; basic network troubleshooting; cabling; writing documentation and working with our desktop support team with the support of desktop, tablet and laptop computers, software, configurations and associated peripherals used across the UK and Ireland.
Our Products & Services team provide opportunities such as: gaining an understanding and experience of professional software development practice and process; the chance to work as part of a team delivering high quality software to meet customer and commercial needs; working with our defined standards, best practice and agreed deadlines; responsibility for resolving technical and customer specific issues, and becoming one of the team being actively involved in projects, sprints or work.
Our opportunities for internships are advertised in October, through our website and the local universities job boards each year. Successful students start in the following September.
