End-to-end responsibility for live projects in a FTSE 100 company

We’re using technology to comprehensively transform our business, from simplifying our networks to creating new customer interfaces. With a host of complex challenges to tackle, including deregulation, climate change and an expanding network, we need to be innovative. Information Systems (IS) – and you – will be at the heart of that journey.

In IS, we deliver new projects, maintain our existing services and manage a large and diverse infrastructure. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to experience every side of our operations and learn vastly different skills, from coding to people management. This is a chance to become a fluid thinker and a true technological all-rounder.


Use your technical skills and knowledge to ensure we deliver a safe, sustainable service

  1. Develop a complete understanding of a FTSE 100 business’s IS function
  2. Combine technical and non-technical experience
  3. Receive formal qualifications from certified, industry-standard bodies
  4. Work client-side with some of the world’s biggest technology suppliers
  5. Be encouraged to explore a wide range of roles


What you’ll be doing

Over three, nine-month placements, you’ll get to get to know our IS team, plans and projects, inside out. We’re focusing on five key areas as part of our strategy for 2020:


  1. Embedding customers at the heart of everything we do
  2. Driving operational excellence and continual innovation
  3. Investing responsibly for sustainable growth
  4. Changing the market for the better
  5. Creating an awesome place to work


Whilst you’re on the programme, you’ll receive IS-related training – as well as our more general, business-wide training scheme – and have the chance to gain formal qualifications in relevant subjects. This will give you the foundation of knowledge you need to step into a substantive role with Severn Trent.
