What to expect as a Business Degree Apprentice

Our business degree apprentices will typically work in roles such as Business Analyst, Project Management or Service Delivery Management.

Due to the nature of our business, you work on ‘projects’. This means you have the opportunity to work across a wide range of roles, industries and locations – there is no ‘typical day’. The best thing about joining us is that while you may start in one area, 
the opportunity to move internally is huge, so you can take control of your career from your first day.
