Head Office Graduate Scheme - IT Stream
Head Office Graduate Scheme - IT Stream
We are currently a team of 91 in the Head Office at Newton but due to continued growth, we're looking for several bright and capable graduates to join our IT team.
Based in our Head Office in Kingston Bagpuize, Oxfordshire, you’ll undertake a series of 3-6 months placements across the IT department, giving you the opportunity to add value, learn skills and gain on the job experience within an entrepreneurial growing business.
In the IT Stream your rotations could include:
- Support and Service Delivery
- Networking and Operations
- Project and Product Management
- Software Development
- Data Science
Each rotation will provide you with exposure to a wide set of experiences and the opportunity to thrive as an important part of our fast-growing business. Progressing through your graduate programme, you’ll likely gain an aptitude and desire for a certain area within IT and be keen to progress from the programme into a particular department after 12-18 months. The ideal candidate we are looking for would then be excited by and capable of continuing to progress through positions in our IT function, with a long-term ambition of joining the business management and leadership.

How do we develop and reward you?
Newton maximises the potential of our people, whether in client-based consulting roles, or in Head Office support functions. The prospects for career and personal development in this role are no exception, with future possibilities across any part of the business support team.
Supporting you starts from day one. Throughout your time at Newton, you’ll get support from several sources – from stretching projects, on-the-job feedback and developmental guidance from our leaders.
For the duration of your Graduate Development programme, you will be working in your cohort with a Management Sponsor, who has been assigned to your group to provide guidance and support. The major part of the curriculum is structured around Breakfast Sessions called ‘Food for Thought’ (FFTs) which are coached sessions with exercises, peer support and time for personal reflection. These will take place once every 6 weeks. You will also take part in some longer courses including our ‘Induction Training Camp’ and Teamwork focussed training, both taking place at offsite locations. Beyond the Graduate Programme your development will continue. You’ll have a dedicated and consistent Development Manager to support yourcareer progression and receive regular appraisals and annual pay reviews.
We offer a highly competitive salary and our generous benefits package includes Life Assurance, Income Protection, pension contributions and 25 days’ holiday. Your overall starting package will be £31,000-34,000 per annum plus a £3,000 joining bonus.
Joining us also brings many social benefits! We have a full social calendar with Autumn and Spring activity days, Christmas events, a 3-day Summer event and 4 Newton-sponsored weekends a year.
