Student Placements

An Opportunity to Learn and Grow

Joining UKCloud for your placement year gives you an opportunity to work on cloud technology that matters to our customers.  We understand that young people bring valuable skills to our business and we offer a range of digital opportunities.  It’s a big decision.  You will want to learn and help you identify your future career.  You will want to shape and be part of something.  You will want a voice and be heard.  If you are looking for all of these things, UKCloud is a good place to start.

You will be a valued member of our team with real responsibilities from day one.  The rest is predominantly down to you.

We’ll work out an onboarding plan to help you in your first 6 months, and with regular reviews with your manager, we’ll help you achieve your goals.  It will be challenging, fast-paced, and you will have lots to learn but if all goes well, you could be offered a graduate role with us.

You will enjoy all the new experiences and challenges you will face.  You will innovate and grow.  It’s not always easy but your ideas and resilience will be used to shape the future and how we work with our customers.

Reach your goals

We cannot emphasise enough the importance of both professional and personal development at UKCloud.  Yes you will help us achieve our goals but you will learn a vast amount about cloud technology, your specialism, and yourself.  By the time you return to university to complete your final year, you will have grown in confidence and have a clearer idea as to what your career will look like.

Much of your learning will be on-the-job; as a business we have learning sessions, e-learning, conferences, events and even volunteering – all of which you can discuss with your manager.  We believe that everyone should have the chance to learn and grow and we look for people who have the learning agility to do so.  We encourage people to ask their manager what they can do next.  This helps to identify gaps, what you really enjoy, share your ideas and where you want to be in the future.  Your colleagues can help too with day-to-day advice on how to tackle something.  Don’t be afraid to ask!
