Hi Victoria. You mentioned Block Chain. Does forensic technology investigate cryptocurrencies?

Emrana K.

I studied Geography but I started TEDx at university, which sparked my interest in technology - all our sponsors and most of our speakers were tech companies

We are looking at how Block Chain can assist our clients with meeting their Regulatory requirements rather cryptocurrencies

Hi Emrana, for our last year graduate intake 35% of our intake were females. We have an active graduate recruitment campaign to aim for a 50:50 intake for 2017. Our main aim is to attract female candidates to apply as we have a lower percentage of females applying for the Forensic Technology graduate roles than males.

On the FT graduate program you will spend one year in Electronic Discovery and one year in Forensic Analytics.

Within Electronic Discovery, graduates tend to work on multiple smaller projects

Within Forensic Analytics, graduates tend to work on one project for longer periods of time e.g. 6-9 months

Graduates will have a buddy when the first join, this will be a second year graduates to help you answer any questions you have about your day to day role. You will then have a mentor who will guide you in your learning and development and provide insight into their experiences.

For performance measurement you will have a Coach who will help you build objectives and targets for the year. You will meet throughout the year and discuss how you are progressing. You will also have fortnightly catch-ups with our project team leader to make sure you are performing well and to provide you with feedback
