Meet Rob – IT Graduate Programme

Joined IT Graduate Programme in 2018

What interested you about the scheme and why did you apply?

I really liked that the scheme allows you to explore different areas of IT, not only so that you can find the area that most fits you, but so that you can have a greater understanding of the people you will be working with from other teams. And this is mostly transferable to any large IT infrastructure you might work in throughout your career.

What are you looking forward to doing?

Finding my feet in a whole bunch of challenging roles that I wouldn’t have the chance to learn if I was starting in a “normal” job.

Do you have any top tips for anyone thinking of applying for the scheme?

The range of work available can cater to all kinds of different people and talents. So if you don’t feel like you fit the role spec exactly, but you’re a fast learner with a mind for business and great teamwork, then definitely apply, and ask what the grad scheme can do for you.

What is your favourite holiday destination?

I’ve not travelled much, but Madeira was the best holiday I’ve taken so far – and my first with TUI! I wouldn’t go if you’re not a fan of lizards, though…

What makes you smile?

So many things, but if I have to choose a couple to put on here… Good friends, and good food! (Preferably both together)
