Your career development

Your development is important to us. From day one, you’ll get your own personal career mentor, who will offer guidance and support throughout your career. Once you have joined Applied Intelligence, alongside all graduates, you will work through our Graduate Development Programme. The programme includes a set of five training modules which will help develop you towards a more specialised career path.

Throughout your time as a graduate, there will be plenty of opportunities for structured development, a range of projects to get involved in, and the opportunity to attend regular events. Due to the nature of our business, we don’t have rigid role rotations. However, you are likely to get involved in several different projects to ensure your skills are developed and enhanced.

We also offer graduates the possibility of taking on technical roles which are less client facing and with the opportunity to gain a real depth of experience in a particular product or technical discipline.
