We are currently looking for bright and ambitious graduates to come join our fast growing team in August 2018!
Is the Academy the right choice for me?
Did you graduate from a business or technical field of study within the last 12 months or are you going to graduate this year (2:1 or higher)?
Can you showcase your interest in digital and tech through your internships, websites/blogs, school projects or other extracurricular activities?
Do you have a genuine interest in learning about web development and large enterprise-level digital transformation projects?
Are you a great communicator with excellent problem-solving skills that will allow you to effectively engage with our clients and partners on a daily basis?
Are you eligible to work in the UK?
If so, our Digital Academy might fit the bill! Cognifide’s year-long development programme is aimed at recent graduates. Our goal is to find, mentor and nurture the brightest new digital talent and equip you with all the skills and tools you’ll need to succeed in the digital world.
How does it work?
You will participate in our structured training programme and learn everything there is to know about our business, the technologies we use to create cutting-edge digital experiences for our clients, and the latest delivery methodologies. You will also have the opportunity to work alongside our experienced Digital Experience Analysts and Consultants on live projects for leading global clients. You’ll gain experience in all departments of our business, and after successful completion of the programme, we will assess your skills and offer you a permanent role as an Associate in one of our Professional Services streams. Exciting, right?
What can I expect from the Academy?
If you are successful in your application, you’ll complete the following programme:
- Inductions – Where it all begins
We will fly you over to our development centre in Poznan, Poland for an induction, where you will learn about our methodology and tools. (1 week)
- Rotations – Getting to know the business
You will rotate through different teams at Cognifide and support them during daily tasks exposing you to everything and everyone you need to know in Cognifide. (4 months)
- Digital Experience Team Project – Getting your hands dirty
Next, you’ll work with your fellow Digital Ninjas on an internal project, helping us improve our practices, services and the business. (2 months)
- Client-Exposure – When things get real
As soon as we feel you’re ready to engage with our clients, you’ll shadow a senior DXA or a Consultant on one or more of our projects. (6 months)
- Graduation – The glory days
Graduating twice in a row? Not bad, right? After 12 months you’ll have what it takes to join us full-time and become an Associate. We will evaluate your skills and interests and we will work with you to help you choose the right career path.
From then on…
You will be working alongside the Professional Services team to help our clients plan, build and optimise digital technology solutions at speed and scale. In your role you’ll develop the skills to transform our clients’ businesses not just around technology but also across people, processes and governance.
As an Associate you will be:
Working closely with our clients to discover their underlying business need or problem and address these through conversations and workshops with key stakeholders.
Breaking down the complex digital solutions into manageable and easy to understand bite sized pieces of information.
Removing the ambiguity by dissecting the client’s business to uncover the key pain points, and identifying what does and doesn’t work.
Consolidating and communicating the findings from your analysis in order to share them with key stakeholders and the delivery team
Engaging with other specialised agencies and Cognifide partners to deliver the best possible solution for the client.
So if you are a recent graduate and you think this might be the path for you then why not apply now?
We can’t wait to hear from you!
