What we offer
At IBM you'll gain knowledge and experience like nowhere else. You'll also be challenged and supported to achieve everything you wanted in your career.
But don’t just take our word for it. When we asked some of our current graduates what words they felt accurately described working at IBM, there were 3 clear winners: innovative, friendly, flexible.
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/shadowing 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, your manager, colleagues 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.
Your manager is there to manage you on a day-to-day basis and oversee the projects you're working on – but not only that! Your manager is also there to help you guide and manage your career and 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.
