About us

In 2015, the IBM Client Innovation Centre UK was established to allow us to meet our clients’ needs faster and more effectively.

Our story

The first CIC in the UK is located in Leicester in the East Midlands. Following the success of our business as the newest, fastest growing part of IBM, the CIC has expanded across the UK. We now also have centres based in The North including Preston and Newcastle; The South which offers locations in London, Swindon and Hursley; and a remote centre specialising in Microsoft skills.

What do we look for?

We could write here about how we want flexible, hard-working and driven individuals to join our rapidly expanding team - and we do - but we’re also looking for more than that. We want people who will go the extra mile, grab the bull by the horns and shout “I can do this!” We’re looking for people that are hungry to grow, who think outside the box and that thrive in a friendly and energetic working environment. This is not a list of generic personal attributes, this is a list of what we are looking for in an employee, a list of qualities that we live and breathe in the CIC. If this sounds like you, then we want you in our team!

Perks don’t hurt!

We are proud of our training and development opportunities. As part of the CIC, you will be welcome to undertake a multitude of training courses with an extensive range of classroom, e-learning, interactive and video courses. With our support, you will have the opportunity to acquire industry recognised qualifications, gain valuable experience with globally renowned companies and work with industry leading technologies. This will enable you to grow within our business which we support via promotion and progression opportunities. If you are as passionate about IT as we are, this will hopefully excite you as much as it excites us!
