The Insight Day is intended to provide Service leavers with the opportunity to learn more about Sage as a business, and the breadth of opportunities within the UK’s technology market. Sage will also provide some hints and tips on their recruitment process, and help you understand what they look for in candidates.
Like the business builders they serve, Sage began as a startup. Their founder, David Goldman, wanted to automate accounting processes in his own business. He worked with a team of Newcastle University students in the UK to develop software to make it happen—and realised other businesses could benefit from this too.
In 1981, he formed Sage. In 1998, Sage came to North America with the acquisition of leading desktop accounting software, Peachtree.
Today, Sage has 13,000 employees and serves over three million customers in 23 countries across mainland Europe, Africa, Australia, Asia, and Latin America.
Please use this opportunity to introduce yourself, chat to the team, and ask plenty of questions.
