Recruitment Process

Internship intake dates vary from country to country, but most regions will start recruiting for graduates between September and December of each year. Interns will then join Sage in the following calendar year.

Internship opportunities will be advertised on our careers website, and applications should be made online.

After application, candidates will complete a series of assessments and telephone/video interviews. One of our recruitment team will then contact you to confirm whether you have been shortlisted for assessment center.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend a half or full-day assessment center at a Sage office site. The assessment center will normally contain a range of team and individual activities. The assessment center is also a great opportunity for candidates to find out more about careers at Sage, and the internship experience.

Case study

Tom Borthwick: Software Engineering Intern – Manchester UK

Tom SouthwickWhat have you been involved in in your internship to date?

I am now integrated into my team after completing initial training. I have completed my first task independently, and this has given me a big confidence boost.

I have been involved in the planning and designing stage of a new project, and we have just started the actual development stage – which means that I am now being involved in pair programming and being assigned my own tasks as part of a fully functional scrum team.

In what way do you feel that this internship will benefit you?

I feel that the skills, knowledge and real-world experience will benefit me on both a professional and personal level. I’m learning new coding languages, skills and practices every single day which is boosting my CV. I also feel that being to say I’m working on the front line developing new products for such a big company as Sage is just a huge boost. Being given so much responsibility as an intern can be daunting but it is equally as rewarding for my self-esteem and overall belief in my own abilities.

Have you felt well supported in your internship so far?

Everyone in the workplace wants the best from and try to help as much as they can. The entire team that I’m working in act as mentors, which is amazing because I can talk to any of my team on a personal level and get advice. I’m also being given the freedom to oversee my own learning which means I don’t ever feel restricted on what I can gain from this internship.

What are you plans after your internship has been completed?

After my internship, I will go back to my University at York and finish the final year of my Computer Science degree. After that I will begin looking for graduate jobs with an extremely boosted CV and a huge amount of real-world experience that I have gained from Sage. However, I do hope to make enough of an impact to be offered a job at Sage at the end of it!
