Who are BJSS? 

We are the UK’s largest privately-owned IT and business consultancy. BJSS has always harnessed technology to help organisations do great things. Conceived in Leeds, UK in 1993, our approach was simple: we differentiated ourselves by the technical excellence of our people, and an unashamedly client-focused delivery culture. 25 years on, those ideals remain at the heart of everything we do. Today over 1,000 talented BJSS technologists are dedicated to delivering innovative IT and business services to clients from locations across the UK and USA. 

We are a forward thinking and progressive business and we’re looking for like-minded folks to join us.  At the core, you will be someone who enjoys the challenge of innovation and creativity. You will engage directly with the client and typically work as part of a wider BJSS delivery team. Our renowned Enterprise Agile approach will provide the structure you need to be successful with your delivery and to ensure that quality is a constant focus. 

We’re a really sociable company, we like to work and play hard, there’s plenty of sporting and social groups to be involved with from football to photography. With onsite facilities for showering (for after football!), and great break out areas, BJSS are constantly ensuring that as well as having interesting and challenging work, our employees find their working environment stimulating and inspiring. 

Whether you are looking to secure a year in industry or a graduate role we would love to hear about why BJSS should hire you. If you have a passion for technology, are a keen problem solver, are pragmatic and super creative…. we want to hear from you!!



The Graduate Scheme 

Unlike other schemes…you can expect to contribute to a live project in your first few weeks, becoming increasingly more ‘hands on’ over the weeks that follow. On top of your project contributions, every Wednesday you will come together with the other placement students, graduates and apprentices to learn more about the ins and outs of the world of technology.

The course consists of several introductory modules during the first semester which provide you with an overview of the different roles, techniques, tools, and technologies which are commonly applied.

The second semester will be a group project where you and your team take on different responsibilities (using what was learnt in semester one, to propose a project to and run it end to end in your teams. This gives you the opportunity to experience roles and responsibilities beyond those you would normally have on your usual project and provides you exposure to realistic problems which you will need to overcome. This internal project provides you with a safe learning environment where you can apply the knowledge you learnt in semester one and explore your interests.
