Tata Consultancy Services creates 1,000 graduate UK internships

Staff writer |
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) announced a unique initiative to develop UK talent.




One thousand young British university graduates will have the opportunity to spend a year, training and working for TCS at its Innovation Labs and software development centers across India through a new partnership between the British Council and TCS.

With employment opportunities in the UK IT sector set to grow at almost twice the UK average employment rate between now and 2020 according to the Tech Partnership, the Social Market Foundation has predicted that the UK faces a shortfall in domestic supply of around 40,000 graduates in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics per year.

The new TCS-British Council partnership aims to address this challenge by helping to foster the next generation of digital talent in the UK and provide British employers with the graduates they will need to succeed in the future.
