What we offer

Working at IBM is not just about your day-to-day job. When we hire you, we have your long-term professional life in mind.

We encourage you to follow your passion – by learning new skills, working across different disciplines or moving into new challenges. Anything is possible with our award-winning, customised professional development and leadership training. In fact, on average, every IBM employee takes advantage of more than 60 hours of training a year.

In short, we believe that global innovation demands not just a diverse range of employees but also the right work/life initiatives that will sustain them, and make them want to stay with us. That’s why IBM gives you the power to design your workday, and your life, according to your unique styles and needs.

    We focus on achievement, not hours, and on our people, not projects. We provide the ability to work longer hours some days, shorter hours others; the technology and tools you need to work from home or at an IBM location nearer home. Which means you can better balance the demands of your job with your interests and home life.

  • Annual leave
