Project Coordinator Industrial Placement

What’s it all about?
Are you currently an undergraduate in your 2nd year at university? Would you like to join an Industrial Placement Programme designed to fast-track you to becoming a Project Manager? Are you ambitious, with a desire to succeed and would like to be part of an innovative global IT company that puts its people at the heart of what they do?

If you do…we have an exciting opportunity for you

In simple terms, you’d be joining a company who advise organisations on getting the most from their IT, we implement the most appropriate technology solutions, and we even manage our customers’ infrastructure – we do it all! Project Management is all about people, our team works across all these areas to ensure we deliver successful project outcomes and delight our customers - so you can really make a difference.

What’s in it for me?

  • A comprehensive, structured training and development programme which will be your springboard to coordinate IT projects for our clients.
  • Exposure to other functions across our business, to give you a real understanding of how we operate, and the crucial role Project Managers play in delivering exceptional services to our customers.
  • The ability to upskill with access to unlimited learning via a market leading e-Learning Platform.
  • The opportunity to work on a diverse range of well-known customer accounts, such as Rolls Royce, NHS, Tesco, Lloyds Banking Group and many companies in the top FTSE100.
  • The opportunity to develop an understanding of the IT Industry.

What do I need to apply?

  • You are currently an undergraduate in your second year of university looking for a placement year in the industry
  • In terms of characteristics we are looking for applicants who:
  • Are driven and committed to provide outstanding levels of service
  • Have good financial and commercial acumen
  • Enjoy team collaboration and can build good working relationships at all levels
  • Can adapt to situations and step out of their comfort zone to solve problems and make decisions
  • Can confidently contribute ideas and suggestions on how we can be more innovative
  • Are organised with the ability to learn and analyse information quickly
  • Bring theoretical learnings from their studies and put them into practice with Computacenter’s Project Management team
  • Whilst we’re working with our customers and colleagues remotely at this time, we do hope to return to some normality, as this is a national role, you must be prepared to commute to our core Computacenter hubs across the UK as well as work onsite with our customers when appropriate.
  • If you have some Language skills that would be useful, but not essential.

Your advantages

We offer a highly competitive salary with excellent opportunities for you to develop. You can take advantage of a professional learning culture which revolves around upskilling and development. We drive an inclusive ‘One Team’ culture where differences unite to create shared success. Senior leadership investment ensures you remain in sharp focus throughout the programme.

We’d love to hear from you if you’re interested in joining this programme. Please submit your CV by 31st January 2022 and we will be in touch to talk you through the process. Good luck!

Current information for our applicants

Business as usual? Not quite. Of course, the Corona crisis also presents us with major challenges.

However, we are broadly positioned across various industries, plan for the long term and have always been flexible in our approach to our customers, especially in times of crisis. Our core business is digitisation. We believe that this topic will continue to grow in importance for many companies in both public and private sectors.

That's why there are still areas of our business with clear hiring requirements – and we would like to bring talent like you on board! By the way, we have completely virtualised our application process and our recruiters remain available to you should you have any questions.

We are still looking forward to getting to know you!
