Fast-track your career with our graduate opportunities

Our graduate opportunities provide individuals with a fast-track development plan that will accelerate their careers.

It enables talented graduates to advance in their positions and progress to the next level associated with their role promptly.

The programme offers the opportunity to perform in roles that would normally be reserved for those with years of experience. However, due to the support tools provided, graduates are able to progress much quicker.

Samantha Evans, In-House Recruiter at Sony UK TEC, said: “We want to see our graduates settle into roles that challenge them and allow them to develop the skills they need to secure their progression.

“Our graduates will work with a highly skilled and experienced team to ensure they’re always learning and growing, encouraging them to quickly step up to the challenge.

“The structure here also allows a graduate who isn’t sure which career path is for them to learn about numerous areas throughout the business, with the possibility to ultimately move on to a whole new challenge in a new department.

“We have people who have worked here for a number of years who have progressed through a number of different areas, ranging from quality to innovation, to learning & development and Industrial Engineering. Our academy can provide the skills and learning pathways to secure this change.”

 Sony UK TEC’s fast-track programme supports graduates in developing a strong skill- set to drive success in the workplace. Graduates are given the opportunity to take full responsibility in their role and use this experience to further progress within the company.

Jessica Jones, Sony UK TEC’s Learning & Development Manager adds: “The chosen graduates will receive a lot of feedback throughout the process, and as they say: ‘feedback is the breakfast of champions!’

“This feedback will help our graduates learn about themselves – how they like to work, their leadership & learning styles, how to develop as individuals or teams, and more. We focus a lot on understanding emotional intelligence and how to build a professional brand.

“The 18-month programme also provides graduates with the opportunity to participate in Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) courses where they will gain qualifications and competencies that will mould them into an effective leader or manager, with the opportunity to undertake role-specific qualifications. We’re interested in how people apply their learning and what we can do to assist.

“While not everyone stays with us, those that do are provided with a clear personal development path for the future that will meet both their intrinsic and extrinsic needs. Those that have stayed have progressed at incredible rates and are considered as key players in the successes of Sony Pencoed and game changers for the future of the company.

“Your growth is vital to us as a company and we want to see you succeed!”

Sony UK TEC has launched its latest Graduate Opportunity recruitment drive, closing on 3rd November. Applicants should be working towards a 2:1 within any field to apply, and there are a number of openings throughout all business areas.
