Our two-year Graduate Development Programme starts you on a journey to develop your career in a challenging, dynamic and supportive work environment. We’ll give you real responsibilities from day one, so you’ll get invaluable experience and exposure working on varied and exciting projects for a large, diverse and ambitious organisation.

We’re looking for a Commercial graduate to join our Secure Infrastructure (SI) business.

Our Commercial Graduate programme offers a fantastic opportunity for you to take those initial steps in your career and provide you with exposure to a variety of projects and client accounts. Our structured rotation scheme does however mean that flexibility is essential for this role, as whilst you will spend your first year in Glasgow, you’ll need to be based from one of our other locations in England, in year two.

Needing to relocate can offer exciting new development and career opportunities for many, but we also appreciate that this may not suit everyone’s personal situation, so please do consider carefully before applying.
