Technical degree apprenticeship roles

We are looking for the UK’s most driven and passionate people. We want to hear from talent like you – school/college leavers with a keen interest in technology and a hunger to learn.

We recruit apprentices into both business and technical positions across some of our major business units, including:

Our technical degree apprentices will typically work in roles such as Software Development/Engineering, where you’ll design, develop and maintain software, and Software Testing, where you’ll carry out technical tests on the software that we’ve developed.  

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 of area, the opportunity to move internally is huge, so you can take control of your career from your first day.
