IT Graduate Programme

As an Ashurst IT Grad, your 12 month programme gives you access to real work, aligned to your skills and expertise, and the opportunity to rotate through three teams so you can experience the breadth of our expertise. At the end of the 12 months you'll have the opportunity to settle in one of our teams.

Most of our graduate roles are offered to people who have interned with us, but we do occasionally recruit outside of internship programmes. These ad hoc opportunities will be advertised on the careers website.
