Want to work with world-class consultants?

View our vacancies

At Scott Logic, we take the development of our graduates seriously. We want you to grow in confidence, skills and impact so that your career in software gets off to the very best start. Many of our graduate recruits also move on to senior positions within the organisation, even leading the launch of specialist divisions.

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.

“I was among Scott Logic’s first batch of graduates. I enjoyed having to learn on the job quite quickly because it made the work very real. Scott Logic’s standout feature for me is working with smart, passionate people. They make my life hard in a good way by challenging me to be better.”

“There’s something really valuable about having a group of people coming together like the grads that haven’t all just done the same course. I mean, if everyone is coming to the same problems with the same approach, you won’t get the same cross-discipline ideas.”

“I joined Scott Logic as graduate developer in 2010, which was an excellent way to learn about software development in the ‘real world’ and hone the skills I learnt at university. Since then I have worked on a large variety of interesting projects using cutting edge technology.”

"The thing that’s kind of coming over is that you’re never going to stop learning, you’re never done, there’s always improvement to be had, whether that’s in you as an individual or your product on the UX side... Just keep pushing, keep getting better, because there’s no limit – and that’s really encouraged here.”

UX Designer, Newcastle

"We do weekly design critiques of each other’s UX work, so you can get all in a room and be like, ‘Right, this is how we can help you, but also now we know what are the issues you’re facing and how all of us can tackle it.’”

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.
