Pathways success stories

 "The Pathways programme was a unique opportunity to re-start my career in technology. I felt a little bit overwhelmed at the idea of starting all over again, but the programme helped me build my confidence up through the supported training and development.” 

Associate Infrastructure Engineer

"I am slightly older than the typical frontline technician, but I was drawn to the Pathways programme because of the flexibility it offered as I have had several periods of family responsibilities. It gave me the chance to work in a large organisation and in what appeared to be, and turned out to be, a very supportive environment.”

Technical Support

“Sage really cares about my future and I can see myself having a long career here. There are always opportunities to move around. Currently, I am working as a graduate developer in back-end development, but one day, I might move to front-end development – it is great to know that I will be able to do different things. I think I could stay with Sage for at least 20 years.”

The application flow




Your application will be instantly inputted into our system where a recruiter will see it and start learning about you. If you need support applying, reach out to us at [email protected].



If the recruiter feels you could be a fit, you’ll embark on a series of interviews. This is your chance to learn more about the Pathways programme and help us get to know you better.


We want you to be successful. If we feel like you’ll achieve that with a Pathways role, we’ll invite you to officially join Sage.


Remember what we said about not needing to know it all? Starting during your first week, we’ll support your transition into your new role with ample training. Day by day, you’ll develop confidence and start acquiring skills you didn’t know you had.


Frequently asked questions

The majority of roles are full-time with flexibility. Let us know what you need, and we’ll work with you.

Yes. It’s not uncommon that candidates pursue the Pathways programme to break into tech, however some roles will ask for some formal training or experience. The job advert will outline these specifics. We’ll assess your technical ability as part of the interview process, then develop an onboarding plan to support your transition.
Embrace it! The Pathways programme is designed for active learning. We want you to always be curious and ask lots of questions. If you’re looking for input from an expert, reach out to your mentor. Or, if you’d rather bounce thoughts off a fellow colleague, your peer mentor or ‘buddy’ as we call them at Sage, is a Teams chat or desk away.
Pathways roles are also designed with flexibility in mind. Right away, you’ll receive training during onboarding and learn about resources that support your wellbeing. Be sure to also let your manager know what you need so they can be in your corner.
Definitely. Our millions of customers are counting on our products to help them run their businesses better, and we need every person at Sage to achieve this.
