The start of your IT career

The most innovative field

Every company needs IT knowledge. No matter in which branch the company operates. And no, by IT knowledge we don't just mean people who code all day with 4 screens around them. The world of IT is extremely versatile and is always expanding! From monitoring and optimising systems to online security, from programming to being the project or management link between the business and IT. There are plenty of options to find a great career in IT that suits your needs.

What is IT?

IT stands for Information Technology and means: 'everything that has to do with automated capture and processing of information'. When you work in an IT department, you are generally responsible for processing, storing and protecting an organisation's digital information. Boring? No way! The profession has a lot to offer. In fact, anyone can come into their own within IT.

Many options in positions and clients

No, working in IT doesn't just mean working with ones and zeros. IT is very versatile; it is everywhere. In the IT traineeship, you and your personal coach will explore which direction suits you best. Based on your qualities, points of development and wishes, we review what would be the best place for you to develop. Our clients are among the top 200 companies in the Netherlands. This includes Rabobank, Ahold Delhaize, Achmea and PostNL. One thing is certain: whichever client you end up with, your IT career will get off to a flying start!
