Adam - Graduate Web Developer (2019), Keele University
“Searching and applying for graduate positions can be a daunting task. In my final year at Keele, I approached a few companies in the local area but didn’t really feel they matched my ambition. I saw a Graduate opportunity at CSI Media and the variation of projects they deliver for a wide range of companies really interested me.

“I attended a few interviews at different companies. However, immediately after walking into CSI Media, I felt it was the place for me. The people are friendly, and the working environment is brilliant. I listen to my tunes whilst coding, and the office dog occasionally pops over to say hello - you don't get that in many offices!

“Within three weeks of applying, I was part of a development team working on a multi-platform solution for a big security company. The work can be challenging, but I am supported by two Tech Leads and a Project Manager with whom I work closely. All three are very helpful; they encourage me to share ideas, and we have gone on to implement a few of them! Seeing your ideas and code you have written in a live project being used by thousands of people every day is very rewarding.

“Within the last couple of months, the Directors approached me to ask if I would like to train to become a Tech Lead. Moving forwards, I will manage two projects and help to support a team of developers. One of the projects is for an international Escape Room brand, so it doesn’t get much more exciting than that!

“If you’re looking for a career in Tech where you continuously develop your skills, build your confidence, use the latest tech, collaborate with a great team, and where your work has a real-life impact on companies, I highly recommend applying for CSI Media’s graduate roles.”
