IT Services Graduate Opportunity

Graduate Opportunities

On this two-year programme, you’ll gain insight into all our core activities across IT Services including design, development, business and operations. This will be achieved through a programme of practical experience, the opportunity to gain recognised qualifications and choose the direction in which you wish to develop your career.

Our IT Services graduates are part of our hybrid workforce at the University of Exeter, meaning this role is a mixture of remote working and on-campus activity. We have two green campuses in Exeter with a wealth of social and sporting opportunities. Information for prospective staff includes more details of the many benefits members of staff can utilise. 

Please note – this programme is different to the University wide graduate scheme that will be coming soon.
