British Council Tata Consultancy Services Internships
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has partnered with the British Council to provide paid opportunities for 1,000 graduate interns from the UK to train and work in India between 2016 and 2020 as part of Generation UK-India.
These internships will equip a generation of UK graduates with the necessary digital skills and understanding of India to excel in the globalised world we live in today as well as helping internationalise the Indian workplace.
Internships will start from mid-August for 12 months and will be based in one of nine major cities in India.
What will I be doing?
You will be working in one of the following areas: software development, global consulting, business process management or human resources. Successful applicants will take part in a 12 month internship and receive training in the technical and commercial skills needed for a career in these disciplines, as well as getting the opportunity to participate in client projects.
Most of the roles are technology specific although there will be some with less of a technology focus. You will be working on a client account which will most likely be a UK business such as a high street bank or retailer. This will give you an in-depth insight into how TCS serve these clients and support them to innovate and improve their business to drive success.
Example role profiles can be found at the foot of this page although the actual roles may differ slightly.
Who can apply?
We are looking for candidates who are motivated to work for a global consultancy company and develop their skills in this sector. In addition you should be fascinated by the relationship between the UK and India and have a real interest in India's role in our world today.
These internships may be of particular interest for candidates from a science, technology, engineering and mathematics background, however, they are open to applicants from any discipline and successful applicants should be able to demonstrate an aptitude, enthusiasm and eagerness to learn about technology.
