Looking for an IT Graduate Job? M&B could be the place for you!

You have most likely dined at some of nationally loved brands including Toby Carvery, Miller and Carter and O’Neills, but have you ever considered us as a potential avenue for your future career in IT?

Yes, you may not view hospitality as the most obvious industry for a career in tech however, you will be amazed at how much IT impacts our industry, and the contribution you could have, drawing on your experience and knowledge.

At M&B, we are committed to cultivating and nurturing exceptional tech talent. This is why every year we welcome at least 1 IT graduate to join our business for an 18-month placement within our Business Change and Tech (BC&T) team.

The BC&T Graduate Scheme at M&B is designed to develop rounded IT Professionals, ready to build their future career in Change & Technology.

This 18-month scheme, consisting of a range of placements throughout the change and technology function, enables our graduates to benefit from both on-the-job learning and participation on continuous development through internally organised activities.

And that is not all, following your placement there is a chance that you can be interviewed and appointed to your first permanent role in IT.

In this interview we speak to (BC&T) Graduate Alex who joined us last year to talk about his experience on the scheme.

Why choose an M&B IT Graduate Scheme?

Why did you apply to the M&B BC&T Grad scheme?

The Graduate Scheme looked like a great opportunity to combine the knowledge learnt from my degree in Business, Computing and IT and the skills gained working as a supervisor in Hospitality. It excited me that I could add value across a huge estate of outlets via technology, whilst understanding operational struggles and adding a different perspective across BC&T throughout rotations.

What skills have you developed through your time at M&B?

I have developed an abundance of skills since joining MAB. I have been able to learn the powersuite, getting the opportunity to create/code tools/flows that are used across the business, I have had to learn how to manage a broad range of vendors for projects and for “Business as usual” service, and importantly the scheme has developed my resilience through being given lots of responsibility throughout the last year. MAB really do empower graduates and give you the tools you need to add value across the business.

What makes hospitality IT graduate scheme unique?

What makes the IT graduate scheme unique is the unique skillset you get from being part of all the different functions, including Application Support, Business Analysis, Vendor Management and Project Management. As you move through the rotations, you get a very unique skillset that allows you to help inform business decisions.

What are your future career goals?

My ambition is to lead my own team within a BC&T function, with a huge focus on developing others. The scheme has taught me how much I love working with others and seeing them grow. My dream is to be a subject matter expert in a chosen field and then grow into management at M&B. I would also love to be in a role with a big involvement with our retail outlets, having had a key focus on supporting our businesses since the start of the scheme.

WHAT IS YOUR ADVICE FOR STUDENTS CONSIDERING THE M&B IT  GRADUATE SCHEME  

Throw yourself into every opportunity, you won’t regret it! At first the terminology, systems and processes will seem daunting. But through getting to know the flow of IT from idea to BAU support, you will surprise yourself with how much knowledge you will gain in a short amount of time.

And also, always keep the outlets at the front of your mind! The RSC is where we work and is named the Retail Support Centre for a reason, in that everything we do focuses on supporting our outlet teams.

CAN YOU SHARE THE ‘GREATEST MOMENT’ YOU’VE HAD WHILST BEING AT M&B? 

My career highlight at MAB has been leading the Smart-stock scanning replacements project to a point where we have chosen a device and partner to support. This process has involved many site visits and stakeholder management to understand the requirements from the business and find a device that co-indices with our hardware strategy. We will soon be rolling the new device out across all of our sites, something I am immensely proud of.
