Our IT graduate programme is a journey of discovery, one that enables you to identify and focus on where you truly excel. You will undertake an extensive induction programme which will help shape your 2-year IT graduate pathway, all of this will be underpinned by industry accredited IT training. Throughout the programme, we will support your development – and ensure you are given the chance to learn and practise the skills required for future technology leadership roles. Following the conclusion of the programme you will continue on your journey, into a career that will progress at a pace and direction limited only by your ambition and commitment.
For this 2-year Programme, you can come from any degree background as long as you’re passionate about developing a career in technology, analytical and logical, collaborative and great communicator, with an ability to think quickly on your feet..
There has never been more of an exciting time to be part of IAG Tech, with our vision to be industry leaders in the use of technology. From the start you will have a critical role in providing technology to our many airlines, enabling them to operate in the most efficient and effective manner. You will be empowered to challenge the norm through the creative use of technology, helping to transform the customer journey.
Imagine working in an agile environment on topics such as Artificial Intelligence; Data Science; Cyber Security; Innovation and Research; Operations; Strategy and Architecture; and Transformation. All of these are just a few of the exciting IT placements available. Picture yourself working in partnership with senior stakeholders and external third-party suppliers on a wide range of IT initiatives that enhance our business and accelerate your development. You could find yourself presenting your thoughts and ideas to help shape the future of the airline industry. Perhaps you undertake one of our overseas placements, or a placement with one of our strategic IT partners. There are so many ways you could help us progress as a worldwide airline group on this programme, whilst growing the breadth and depth of your experiences and knowledge.
Over the course of two years you will enjoy hands-on learning and responsibility through a series of placements. During Year 1, you will start with an induction which will develop a deep understanding of the IAG Group and the airline industry, while beginning your development. After this you will move on to a series of placements. We will help you identify what you enjoy, which will then shape the placements you undertake during the 2 years. Along the way there will be opportunities to reflect on your strengths, individual needs and career pathways.
Development & progression
Through real responsibility, you’ll gain specialist and broad knowledge and experience. Throughout the programme, we will support and nurture your development – and ensure you are given the chance to learn and practise the skills required for future leadership roles in a safe environment.
You will be employed on an IAG GBS contract and assessed throughout your 2-year programme, with successful performance leading to salary progression at key intervals. After the programme, your technology career could develop in many different directions – determined by your ambition and business need.
We are looking for a minimum of a 2:2 degree (or equivalent), in any degree subject (either achieved or expected). We are most interested in your passion and motivation for a career in technology, and in your analytical and logical approach. Soft skills are just as important as technical skills and so you will have a rounded skills set. You have the ability to think both creatively and strategically. It’s also essential that you have the right to live and work full-time in the UK indefinitely without sponsorship from IAG Tech.
