Napier, St Andrews, Stirling, Edinburgh, Heriot Watt, Strathclyde, RGU, Dundee and Glasgow have been deluged with goodies and Grads & Interns career opportunities from Skyscanner.
Skyscanner’s Graduate Programme Manager, Kim Watson along with assistant Marie-Sophie Jammes and a team of acolytes have been touring the country with a giant Skyscanner suitcase, full of Skyscanner goodies, and chances for grads to learn what a career at Skyscanner offers.
Here’s the low down on the graduate programme…
Why are we recruiting grads and interns?
- If you’re good enough at the role, you are old enough for the role
- Lack of experience can be an advantage rather than a disadvantage – a fresh eye and a bunch of new ideas!
- Another occasion to use one of Skyscanner’s mantras: “Master, Teach, Learn”
Why work for Skyscanner - what do we have to offer?
Skyscanner is launching its first Technology and Commercial Graduate programmes. The idea is to have graduates and interns rotating for 12 to 18 months around related departments.
Skyscanner doesn’t promise a student life. We offer career opportunities that are even more exciting!
Who are we looking for?
Our core recruitment is for software engineers, so we want to hear from techies who know and love coding and everything it involves. Anyone studying software engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics, artificial intelligence, information systems, informatics and related subjects are of interest. But remember, Skyscanner recruits people, not degrees.
One third of our graduate & intern recruiting will be dedicated to our commercial and marketing teams for which we need extremely bright and talented people (essential for becoming a ping-pong/pool/table football master) in various fields.
What are we looking for?
Passion, talent and potential.
How do I apply? What’s the process?
There are five stages:
- Online Personal Profile Analysis (PPA)
- Online General Intelligence Profile (GIA) – for Technology Programmes only
- Telephone Interview
- Assessment Centre
- Technical Interview

Tips on how to use your free Skyscanner goodies
Students were encouraged to play with our puzzles, help themselves to m&ms, pens and post-it notes. We were particularly impressed by Andew Beveridges’ use of our puzzle cubes (a very promising candidate!), watch his video below:
