Salary & benefits
Our benefits package is highly flexible so it can be tailored to fit your lifestyle and personal circumstances. We offer a range of personal benefits – from private healthcare, to different discount schemes.
In addition our cash compensation package is built to attract, retain and motivate high performing employees.
To make sure you get exactly the help and skills you need, we provide targeted training that includes a range of opportunities - from a formal mentoring program and career development to peer support and professional development.
Whatever your question or training needs, you'll have some of the best brains in the business to consult: a worldwide collaboration of resources, experience and expertise that will help you achieve what you know you are capable of – and perhaps even more.
There are 3 core elements to the training you'll receive at IBM:
Whether you're focussing on business or personal skills development, we have our own dedicated training organisation to help. There are literally hundreds of courses available for you to choose from. And it's not all about sitting in a classroom. You'll have the flexibility to fit your training in around you – with downloadable courses, podcasts and webcasts.
One of the most valuable things we can offer you is the opportunity to apply your knowledge in a hands-on, commercial environment, or 'on the job training'. You'll work on real projects, with real clients, and real bottom-line deliverables. But not to worry, both your Manager and Mentor will be there to lend their full support, enabling you to gain as much exposure as possible.
In order to achieve your career goals, you need to have the right technical and professional skills, as well as appropriate accreditation and certification for your particular area. We will help you achieve the appropriate certification.
For the day-to-day tasks, you’ll have a Task Manager to manage you on overseeing the projects you're working on. Your Task Manager will also be there to help you manage your career and your professional development.
You’ll work with your manager to create an Individual Development Plan. This will identify:
You’ll review this plan once a year with your manager to ensure your continued career development.
It’s not all work and no play...
Nearly 100 students and graduates join us every year, so although IBM is a huge organisation, you’ll instantly be part of a community of like-minded individuals.
You’ll find yourself working in a friendly environment with talented colleagues. And given the size and scale of our business you’ll experience huge variety in the work that you’ll get involved with and you’ll work with a range of clients across all types of business.
When you start, you’ll be invited to join our Young IBMers Club where you can network with our current IBM students and graduates. The club actively arranges social gatherings, workshops and educational workshops. It’ll also help you meet and get to know other new IBMers so you can even sort out shared accommodation.
Whichever career path you choose to follow at IBM, we can offer you an incredible experience, world class training, leading technology, a great social network, the opportunity to work with the best brains in the industry and develop expert knowledge – at one of the most successful companies in history.
