12 Month University Placements
Our University Placement Scheme is for those in their penultimate year of their Undergraduate degree looking for a year in industry.
Our roles will be opening periodically over the academic year. Our hiring process runs on sprints – this means we aim to complete ‘application to assessment centre’ within a 3-week period, with a final interview & offer following this stage. Individual roles will open for up to 1 week at a time throughout the year - we close when we have hit capacity. If the role you are interested in is not open yet, please register your interest and you will be notified once it is open for applications.
There are internships, and then there’s Extreme Blue.
Think of it as the opportunity to unleash your technical ingenuity and business acumen in the professional world working on internal and external projects - with the support, expertise and backing of one of the world's leading technology companies. Extreme Blue at IBM isn’t your average internship. It’s a race against time - with the 12 week timeline compelling you to prove your creativity, passion and knowledge to deliver some of the most innovative solutions to real life business challenges. You will work in a team of 4 to develop an idea to address a real-world challenge confronting part of IBM's business – and then turn that idea into a real product. When the 12 weeks are up, you’ll showcase it to our executives, business partners and clients. Each year 16 students join us on Extreme Blue, in 12 Technology roles, and 4 Design roles.
