The job

PepsiCo are looking for enthusiastic undergraduates to join our Business and Information Solutions department (BIS) based at our Head Office in Reading on a 13 month placement working as a Functional Analyst. 

Walk into your local supermarket or corner shop and it won't take long to spot one of our products. PepsiCo UK is home to market-leading brands such as Quaker, Walkers, Pepsi and Tropicana; all household names that stand for quality and trust. Our people make PepsiCo UK the successful business it is today by delivering 'Performance with Purpose', our global commitment to achieve sustainable growth.

Depending on your skills and interests, you will be placed in one of our core Service Delivery teams as a Functional Analyst. The teams are Enabling Services, Commercial Supply Chain and Service Management. The application support teams provide functional IT support while the Service Management team provide end user support for the whole of our UK and European business.

In addition to providing functional support to the end users of systems supported by the service delivery team you join, you will also be given exposure to a widely used IT framework called ITIL. Using the ITIL framework, you will provide assistance or maybe even lead activities such as configuration, change and problem management. We will provide on the job training and as such no specific systems knowledge is required.
