Job Description

Ambitious and driven? Analytical and pragmatic? Build your career in one of the UK’s largest software companies on the Capita Information/Cyber Security Graduate Programme.  

At Capita, we support and improve the lives of millions of people. Our 2019 Information/Cyber Security Graduate programme with the Capita Software division offers structured and supported development for those looking to kick-start their professional career. Joining Capita as a graduate means never sitting still. With two placements across your two-year programme, you’ll be continually learning about different areas of our business, with a structured plan designed to introduce you to the best we have to offer. We’re a large and diverse organisation, so we’re looking for graduates who are hungry for success and have the ambition and potential to lead and enhance the way we work. Interested? Read on.


What you’ll be doing

Our graduate programmes aim to bring talented individuals together to allow them to discover their strengths and shape their future careers. As a member of our Information/Cyber Security Graduate programme, you’ll join Capita Software, one of the UK’s largest software companies and a market leader in the industry. From day one, you’ll be hands-on as you get to grips with a range of programming languages and product types, shape and provide technical input to projects, and help code and support development migrations, all while building your own knowledge and skills. You’ll be supported by those around you, from dedicated business mentors to experienced team members to make sure you’re getting the most out of each placement. You’ll have two rotations – and, it’s important you’re able and willing to travel around the country – to make sure you make the most of our far reaching, varied business.


What’s in it for you?

As part of our programme, you’ll benefit from ongoing learning and professional support from one of our dedicated mentors. You’ll also have the opportunity to network with fellow graduates and senior decision-makers, enabling you to take your career to bigger and better places within Capita. As part of our offering, you’ll receive:

  • Starting salary of £27,500
  • Opportunities across 365 office locations across the UK and Ireland
  • Range of company benefits, including 23 days’ holiday, company-matched pension scheme, life assurance and retail and leisure discounts
  • Opportunity to grow and develop your career in a market-leading organisation


About Capita Software

Capita Software is one of the UK’s largest software companies and a market leader in delivering innovative digital and software solutions, specialising in education, UK utilities and ‘blue light’ software. With a client list that includes Metropolitan Police, Network Rail, Tesco, HMRC and the NHS, in short, we provide the behind-the-scenes technology that keeps our country running. Our products are already being implemented in over 22,000 schools and continue to deliver mission-critical solutions for local governments, transport authorities and emergency services. Our goal at Capita Software is to create value through reliable and efficient solutions, and to deliver unique insights that will impress and delight our clients.


What are we looking for?

You’ll have achieved or be expecting to receive a 2:2 degree or higher in an IT related subject, and you might even have a post graduate qualification, like a Masters. If you have previous professional experience it’s beneficial, but not essential. With an eye for detail and the ability to prioritise and organise your own workload, you’ll also be a self-starter with a willingness to push both yourself and the business forward. Above all, it’s your determination and hard work that will be key to your success. As we’re a large organisation with offices throughout the UK, you’ll also need to be prepared to travel and relocate. Relocation is essential for this role as you can be placed in any of our UK offices so please think about this when applying.
