Welcome to the ITV Technology Graduate Programme for 2019-20

Want to kickstart your career in Tech at the UK’s biggest commercial broadcaster? Then look no further.

Welcome to the ITV Technology Graduate Programme

As an integrated producer broadcaster, ITV creates, owns and distributes high-quality content on multiple platforms globally. We operate the largest commercial family of channels in the UK, and deliver our content through linear television as well as on demand. ITV Technology is the key that unlocks our creativity, allowing us to make, distribute and monetise the best programmes in the UK and across the world.

This graduate scheme is an exciting 2 year opportunity, with placements in leading technology disciplines across diverse teams. You’ll get the best training possible, on the job learning, supported individual projects and exposure across all areas of technology to ensure that you have a rounded foundation for a career in media technology.

We enjoy what we do - innovating with technology, working with different teams, solving problems and constantly improving. If you have a passion for technology, media and learning, then look no further!

Over 24 months, you will work closely with ITV technology departments including our award-winning ITV Hub video on demand service, our broadcast and studios areas, and key functions that all companies need from cloud hosting to finance, networks and cyber security. We have two location options - London and Leeds, and wherever you choose you will have the opportunity to work with teams in different parts of the UK including technology colleagues in London, Manchester and Leeds.

All of our Technology Graduates have a similar structure in the first year; time working within each of the business areas, structured training in a development language (Scala, Java or front-end), and an extended placement with one of our software engineering teams. After that, we work with each individual to put together a combination of placements, projects and learning that helps them to focus their development into a career specialism, and enables them to work towards a long term career at ITV.

Expect to gain key skills in everything from software development, product and project management, video engineering, data science, cyber security, devops and cloud - all within a creative media environment.

Video is exploding in all industries from marketing, social media and content production, to medical training in remote locations - and this makes ITV well placed to support you on your journey in this growing domain. So what are you waiting for?

We are looking for dynamic and driven people with an appetite for learning to join our technology team. We want people who are passionate about what we do, and have a clear ability to solve complex problems. You should have or be working towards a degree in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths subject, or equivalent experience to prove your suitability. 

  • You are a UK/EEA resident
  • You have or are on track for a 2:2 degree in a related subject


The application process is generally open from November until January, and you can apply for the London scheme here. We run assessment centres in March, followed by face to face interviews in our offices. The role starts in September each year.
