Once you discover what you’re passionate about, we’ll support you to develop in those areas through two certifications, one after 18 months and the other after 2.5 years.

Co-located training days

We’ll bring you and your fellow grads together once or twice a year for training days, and so that you can socialise and build your network.

Associate role

After six months with us, you’ll advance from Graduate to Associate, reflecting a milestone on your graduate journey with us as you progress through further training and support towards a consultant role.

Regular pay reviews

We see graduates make great and rapid progress in the time after joining us, and so for the first 18 months of your time at Scott Logic, we will review your pay every six months.

"One of the many reasons I see myself staying at Scott Logic is the open and collaborative culture where everyone supports one another. It means we never end up feeling like we’re working in morale-draining silos, cut off from one another."

Test Engineer, Bristol

“I was thrilled to be hired and was enrolled on the Graduate Programme... The great thing was all the graduates were located in the same open area of the office, so you could get feedback from someone who was coming to the end of the scheme or reach out for help from employees.”

Innovation Director, Edinburgh

“I’ve always wanted to be part of an organisation that actively encourages you to explore new territories. The fact that I’ve now been at Scott Logic for 15 years is testimony to the fact that the company lets you do just that. You really can’t ask for more from a job.”

Here’s what you can expect from our graduate programme:

Packed induction programme

Your induction programme includes presentations from our founder and senior managers, plus hands-on sessions to help you understand the kind of clients we look after and the diverse technology services we deliver.

Experienced mentors

Your exposure to our experienced consultants isn’t limited to one-off presentations though. You’ll get to meet and learn from talented designers, developers, testers and project managers, helping you understand the opportunities open to you in your career at Scott Logic.

Challenging projects

You’ll work as part of a team on intense design and build projects, created to give you hands-on experience of working in a real-life, professional environment.

Diverse technologies

Our clients trust us to develop innovative solutions to complex software challenges, so our technology-agnostic approach is key. This means that, even on the graduate programme, you’ll be exposed to a massive array of new languages, platforms and approaches.

Real industry insight

As well as tackling challenging graduate projects, you’ll get to work on broader internal projects with more experienced team members, and bolster your skills on even more progressive client projects.

Challenging graduate projects

Working in small teams, all our graduates get to tackle a design and build project, putting into practice skills gained after several weeks of general and specialist technical training. The group project is designed to introduce you to new ways of working and give you a hands-on experience of developing software in a commercial environment.
