Sopra Steria is the European leader in digital transformation.

Combining technical skills with those of a Business Analyst we will develop you into a consultant that not only interacts closely with the client to understand what is needed but has the skills to investigate, analyse, and deliver. This ability helps bridge the gap between knowing what is required from a business perspective, recommending approaches and options and ultimately delivering solutions.

Our goal is to give you the best possible start. When you start your two year journey you will join a comprehensive induction programme alongside other Graduates and Placement students from multiple programmes. The induction programme allows you to learn more about our business, understand what other departments do and how every function interrelates. This scene-setting will be complimented by programme specific training to set you up for success in your role. Throughout your programme you will also gain Leadership and Behavioural development to help you on your journey towards hopefully becoming a future leader of our business.

You don’t need to be studying for a particular degree to come and join us. What we’re looking for is a curiosity for how technology can improve business for clients, a flair for analytical thinking, first-class communication skills and a can-do attitude which means you’re unafraid to challenge the status quo and look for better ways of doing things. A talent for connecting and collaborating with all kinds of people to build positive relationships is also really important. Our business is one that’s driven by client demand which means flexibility is a must. Our clients and our offices are throughout the UK so travel will be required. We recruit on a rolling basis so we encourage you to complete your application as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Apply soon so you don’t miss out!

General Management, Corporate Buying, eCommerce and IT Industrial Placement Opportunities at Aldi

Where: UK

Deadline: April 30, 2017

Type: Placement Year

View more

If you just fancy a year out of uni, then don’t apply for Aldi. Because our Industrial Placements really are like no other. From day one, you'll be at the heart of the business, rolling your sleeves up as an integral part of the team. It's this level of early responsibility that's helped our General Management Industrial Placement really take off. And now, based in our Atherstone Head Office, we’ve also added Corporate Buying, eCommerce and IT to the list.

Whichever placement you choose, we'll invest loads of time in you. Over the 52 weeks, you'll get intensive training and rare exposure to our internal workings to add your impact. And by rotating across different teams, you'll become an expert in how our operations fit together to ensure a smooth-running business.

If responsibility doesn't faze you, you can quickly prove your worth. It really is a year like no other. And, providing you impress, you’ll be encouraged to apply for a permanent role after you graduate. If you're on our General Management Industrial Placement, then you'll be perfectly prepared to join our awardwinning Area Manager Programme. Which could be the start of your fast track to leadership.

To earn your placement, you'll be working towards a 2:1 in any discipline on a sandwich degree course. And for our eCommerce or IT programmes, a relevant degree will definitely come in handy but is not essential. You'll also have a minimum of 240 UCAS points (or 150 points for Scottish Highers) from your top 3 A-levels/Scottish Highers. It’s important you have the right to work in the UK. And, if you’re applying for our General Management Industrial Placement, you'll also need a full driving licence and access to a car.
