About SAP

SAP is a world leader in business enterprise software; nearly 404,000 companies in every industry across the globe are using SAP software right now to improve their business process. By helping to manage their flow of information, SAP empowers people and organisations to work together more efficiently and use their business insight to become the best run organisations.

Today, SAP has locations in more than 190 countries with over 404,000 customers worldwide. SAP provides applications and services to customers that represent 87% of the Forbes Global 2000 companies, distribute more than 72% of the worlds food, and produce 82% of the world’s medical devices.

The best way to describe our SAP Culture is through our How We Run behaviors – 5 simple principles that give us purpose and help us achieve our goals. They are: tell it like it is, stay curious, embrace differences, keep the promise, and build bridges – not silos. At all SAP locations, our employees know what we stand for. Ask any of us, and we’ll tell you exactly how we run.

Our Placement Programme

We know our interns are the next generation of innovators, so we’re investing in them in a big way. At SAP, you’ll earn an income while you develop your business and technology skills, work on real projects, learn from the pros, build your network, and so much more. There’s no shortage of fun opportunities.

Awarded as one on RateMyPlacement’s top undergraduate employers in both 2015/2016 and 2016/2017, in addition to being recognised as a top employer by the ‘Top Employers Institute’ for four consecutive years. A placement with SAP guarantees that you will have the chance to make an impact, not only in your chosen business discipline, but also to the organisation as a whole.

SAP also offers insight days where undergraduates will be experiencing its Innovation Labs and have real business exposure.
