The placement will involve activities around the initial development of technology innovations and you’ll be working alongside Solution Architects to assist in the production of working prototypes, demonstrations and proofs of concept.

This is an excellent opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills to apply within a similar IT role across a wide number of industries or functions after graduation.
