Part Time Undergraduate - Project Manager
Taking "Earn While You Learn" To Another Level
This programme is probably the most innovative blend of a degree and part-time job out there. From your first to your third and final year, you'll get the best of both worlds combining theoretical and project-based work at university, with 8 hours per month working for Arm and being an Arm ambassador on-campus. And when the summer rolls around, you'll join us full-time and discover how we're revolutionising 95% of the world's connected devices – from your smartphone to the world's fastest supercomputer.
If that sounds challenging, don't worry – we're with you all the way. You'll be supported by Arm employees who'll help you create development roadmap unique to your career goals. And once you've graduated, you'll have all the skills and experience needed to guarantee that dream job in tech.
One benefit we're really proud of is FlexPot; a sum of money on top of your salary which you can use for charitable giving, development or your personal wellbeing. Ready to start that French language course you've always wanted to do? Or are you a keen gym-goer and want to use it for a membership? There's lots different of ways to enjoy your Flexpot.
We'll always encourage you to take plenty of annual leave, so you stay fresh and inspired. But you know what really does it? When we encourage you to take an extended, paid 4 weeks' sabbatical after 4 years of service. You could even combine your FlexPot allowance with your sabbatical and volunteer overseas!
You're a human being, not a resource. And so it's important to us that we're there for you at significant points in your life. That's why we offer flexible progressive leave. Whether you're having kids, acting as a primary care giver or have lost a loved one, you'll be able to put your family first without worrying about your career.
We create a safe space for you to look after your mental and physical health, with support ranging from medical insurance to the workplace mental health platform Unmind. Alongside a growing number of onsite gyms, yoga, cycling and running clubs. All of which comes with a flexible working policy to ensure you can live life and be your brilliant self.
You know us. Or maybe not, but that doesn’t change the fact we’re with you, morning, noon and night. If you have a smartphone, digital camera, digital TV, gaming console or a smart meter at home, you’ve already used an Arm powered product.
Our advanced processor designs play a substantial part in optimising the performance of 95% of all connected devices!
This means we’ve teamed up with almost all the big names in tech. Over 35 billion Arm technology-based chips (that’s 125 shipped every second) and the software driving them are in everything from the world’s fastest supercomputer to driverless car controls to ground-breaking healthcare equipment.
The sheer number of applications is why we’re one of the world’s biggest technology companies. Even if you don’t know our name, over 70% of the global population is using our tech every day through the ones you do know.
So, what? What can we give you no one else can? Well, just because you’re joining a business of 7,000 truly talented innovators, either starting in one of our sleek and creative offices or working from home, to us you’re an individual.
We have a ‘we, not I’ approach in terms of collaboration, but when it comes to your training, development and progression, Arm have a plan just for you. You can carve out a career as unique as you are, with our mentors right there supporting you, even when the world throws us a curveball.
Dreaming of becoming a world-class Software Engineer, Hardware Engineer, Data Analyst, Marketing master or HR specialist? Don’t worry, we're here with you all the way.
