You won’t be alone: we’ll be there with help and support, learning and development. You’ll make great friends, discover new talents, and feel part of something exhilarating.

About this role


Our in-house Digital Platforms and the teams behind them are our inner powerhouse. By bringing together our technical and commercial expertise, and our insight and passion for customer experience, we help stand out from the competition. Our software engineers come up with new ideas and develop new technologies and we want you to be a part of improving people’s lives for the better in welcome, relevant, and affordable ways. 

Working with our Agile DevOps Teams, you’ll work alongside our architecture teams, building our Digital platforms.  You’ll design, develop, deploy, test software and new technologies. It’s a pivotal role in the team as you’ll be building the pipeline that will deliver core software services that serves over 30 million customers and colleagues. 

You’ll be writing high performance, well-tested code, on a simple, light weight microservices architecture. You will also review, optimise, and challenge processes and outputs to continuously improve the output of the team’s work – you will be researching and testing solutions to any problems, as well as escalating issues as needed. 

Planning, scoping, and monitoring activities, including assessing risk and business impact from start to finish will be key. Developing “full stack” software – from frontend portals, middleware to backend software – and testing complex / non-complex routine digital software and platforms in line with design requirement will form part of your scope of work. 

We’ll give you on the job training and access to our internal learning platforms and the exposure you need to become a commercially savvy professional within the relevant business unit.  


This graduate programme is available in the Digital part of our business.
