Why choose the Orange Graduate Programme?

The Orange Graduate Programme is an exciting adventure into the heart of the digital world, offering an experience that is both professional and human.

Orange Graduate Programme
It is a challenging programme aimed at Masters-level graduates from business or engineering disciplines who, upon starting their position, have less than 18 months' work experience gained in France or abroad. Experience of longer than 18 months gained through training and apprenticeships is also welcomed. You are bilingual in French and English and are interested in the digital world and how it changes the everyday lives of millions of people around the world.
