This summer we’re looking for enthusiastic undergraduates with a keen interest in software development to join us for a yearlong work placement. These roles are for students who are completing a placement as part of their degree. If you do well, you could leave with a conditional graduate job offer to fast track into a role with Saggezza upon graduation. You’ll work alongside graduate hires and experienced developers on everyday projects. So, you’ll get a good insight into working life at Saggezza. 

You’ll need to be self-motivated and have an innovative mind, a passion for technology, and a good understanding of object orientated development.

  • You will gain on-the-job experience to help you develop your skills. 
  • You will join our Skills Accelerator Programme, it’s a crash course in how to apply what you’ve learned throughout your time at university to the world of work. And you won’t be rehashing what you learned in university: Dean, who joined us as a Graduate Software Consultant  says “I learned more in four weeks on the Skills Accelerator Programme than in my three years studying Computing at uni”.  

Work with industry experts 

There will be opportunities to learn from some of Saggezza’s leading experts in CCM, Microsoft, web, and open source technologies. You’ll also get to experience working with industry-acclaimed project design principles. 

An opportunity to join our graduate scheme

Come and experience what it feels like to work with us. 

We’re committed to providing our people with a great environment to work in. You can expect: ongoing skills-based development, career progression as well as health & well-being benefits and support.
