What you will be doing

Global is giving you the opportunity to earn your backstage pass and access all areas as part of our Technology Graduate Scheme 2017.

While we make waves throughout the 'Capital' from our HQ in Leicester Square, the Technology department boasts twenty regional offices all programmed to ensure the 'Smooth' running of Global from its core. Technology is at the 'Heart' of Global with a dedicated team ranging from Developers and Engineers to Data Analysts and Product managers. And, of course, not forgetting our fantastic graduates who bring innovative and fresh ideas to the team.

Our graduates aren’t afraid to ask questions and they thrive on new challenges saying ‘yes’ whenever they see opportunity. They demonstrate a strong understanding of computer science concepts, work well independently and in teams, care about the quality of their work, and most importantly have an appetite to learn in a fast-paced environment that embraces agile development, cloud computing, open source and data analytics.

  • You will start this placement in September 2017 on a permanent contract basis
  • You will spend your first year rotating around various projects across our technology teams, before settling into a more specialist role of your choice 
  • You will be based in either London or Reading, but will have the opportunity to travel around other regional broadcast centres as required.

What you will have

If you’re the one clicking refresh 100 times over as those gig tickets go on sale, the one being told to take your headphones off in class or trudging your way through mud in rain soaked wellies just to be closer to the music...we like you already!

We are passionate about what we do, working to a gold standard, never accepting second best and constantly striving to answer the question ‘how can I make that better?’

If you ask yourself asking the same thing, take a step into a day in the life of a Technology Graduate…

In particular, we're on the hunt for graduates with these qualities:

  • You have a passion for new technology
 - whether that be writing software, analysing data, working with social media or using new technology such as machine learning to solve problems
  • You have great communication skills and  you are straight talking and sincere
  • You have the ability to think creatively and see the bigger picture
  • You have the vision to spot potential issues and come up with great solutions
  • You have boundless enthusiasm and dedication
  • You have great attention to detail, plus you are highly organised
  • You have comfortable working alone on projects or being part of a team.
Onwards to our company and culture…
