The Application Process
Here's some text about the Application Process
Who are we looking for?
So you’ve decided to join us? Great news. We want to remind you that we require you to achieve a 2:1 to be eligible for the Programme.
We structure our Graduate Programme entirely around your development, so to get the most out of the programme and ensure the best possible career development for you within CSC, you will need to be completely flexible about your location for the duration of your time on the Graduate Programme.
We welcome applications from all candidates, and we do ask that candidates take responsibility for ensuring that they are legally able to work in the UK, as we may not always be able to sponsor visas. All offers for the Graduate Programme are dependent on candidates achieving the appropriate level of security clearance. Some of our clients (specifically those supported by our Technical Graduate Programme) also require employees to have high-level security clearance. For this reason, if you are applying for a role on our Technical Graduate Programme, you may find it easier to achieve the required level of security clearance if you have been resident in the UK for over five years.
Hints and Tips
We’re delighted that you’ve decided to apply to us, and we want to ensure that you stand the best possible chance of success in our process. Therefore, please bear in mind the following advice when you apply.
To apply, we need a CV and cover letter - we don't have an application form! Don't fall into the trap of having a generic CV for every job that you're going to apply for - always tailor your CV for the position that applying to. Your cover letter should be about three or four paragraphs long and again tailored to why you want to work for CSC.
Spend some time thinking carefully about why CSC is the right place for you - we think it's great here, and we want to know why you want to join us rather than our competitors. We’re looking for you to demonstrate that you understand us, our mission and our business, and for you to show why this excites you.
Remember that your cover letter and CV are your first opportunities to make a great impression, not just with the recruitment team, but with your future manager. Therefore, we highly recommend that you spell check and sense check your application form before you submit it.
