Liberty IT Graduates – Investing in the future

Thursday, May 16, 2019

Looking for a graduate IT job in Belfast or Dublin? Liberty IT prides itself on investing in top tech talent, whether they are fresh out of university or have many years of experience.

Graduate software engineers will join the team, learning how to rapidly and effectively deliver great software in an Agile environment that adds real value to our customers. You will work with and learn from our best tech talent, being coached, challenged and mentored as you progress!

Graduates coming on board at Liberty IT generally start as associate software engineers, and have the chance to be creative and have their voice heard, all the while learning from experienced senior software engineers.

Starting in October every year, our graduate IT recruitment provides opportunities for those who have either recently completed degrees in software engineering, computer Science, or an IT related discipline, as well as those in their final year of study.

A five-week training programme for new graduates at Liberty IT allows associate software engineers to get up to speed and make new friends, while also working on a team project which is then used for a business solution.

Liberty IT counts on a dynamic recruitment process for graduates which steers clear of the traditional CV application and standard interview.

The graduate recruitment process involves a series of active stages, including an application form, an online coding test through Codility, and a half day recruitment centre. The recruitment centre is made up of three stages: a mini interview, a team challenge, and a bug finding task. It’s a great opportunity to find out whether Liberty IT is the right fit for your first job by talking to our current graduates and other employees in a relaxed environment.
