Graduate & Apprenticeship Programme

Innovate, win, and grow with Bottomline.

Graduate Training Scheme 2018

Bottomline Technologies is a global provider, and market leader, of payment processing, financial document automation, and cash management products. We support over 10,000 organisations around the world to help manage their payments: an essential area of every business. We run a graduate programme annually to find the next leaders in the Fin Tech sector! Bottomline Technologies is looking for talented graduates to help sustain our rapid growth through innovation, customer delight, team work and constant improvement.

We offer you all the training and guidance that you need to flourish at the start of your career. Where necessary, we will send you on external courses in ITIL, Prince2 and Microsoft, CIMA, CIM as well as on the job and internal training. You will be given real responsibility as part of our graduate programme and will be contributing to the business from day one.

At Bottomline, we understand that the decision about your first step on the career ladder is often very difficult to make. What sort of career path in what type of company? Geographical location? Development opportunities? Reward package?

We'd like to help you in this by providing a brief outline of what our company can offer.

We have graduate trainees located in both our Reading and City of London offices.

All graduates are hired on permanent contracts and the graduate programme runs for 12 months. After successful completion of the programme, graduates are moved onto permanent roles.

Although we offer a full graduate training experience, all our graduates and interns are filling real roles. During the recruitment process we work closely with each shortlisted applicant to understand their career aspirations and identify key strengths to help develop their skills.

Following a one week induction program, graduates are then integrated into their department for their first rotation through ‘meet and greets’ as well as training on the role. This will be delivered by internal and external providers, through classroom sessions, online and 'on the job'. There will be an opportunity to study for professional qualifications, where appropriate.

We are committed to employee engagement from the very start of each employee's career journey. To enhance this, each graduate has a dedicated manager and mentor, all of whom are committed to their development. These people, along with the HR team, provide support through weekly and monthly 1-2-1 meetings, as well as regular performance appraisals.

Bottomline is a company which is growing rapidly; our business strategy is to double our size every three years, delighting our customers with innovative products and first class customer service. However, we will never be too big to recognise each individual employee and celebrate the impact that they can make.

We offer graduate roles in the following areas (rotational scheme):

  • Financial Messaging
  • Information Technology
  • Marketing
  • Product
  • HR
  • Finance
  • Project Management
  • Sales
  • Services
