Job Description

Job Description and Responsibilities:

Our four-year Technology Apprenticeship offers the opportunity to gain a broad range of technical experience and business knowledge while studying. On successful completion of the programme you will be awarded a BSc Hons degree qualification, debt free, whilst getting paid!

Over the course of the program you will undertake four six-month placements in different teams in our Operations and Infrastructure function. You’ll slowly build your technical knowledge and experience over time before selecting two longer placements that allow you to specialise in an area of your choice.

You will get practical experience in areas such application, tools and product support, operations acceptance testing, transition and release, governance and reporting and technical documentation. While these terms may not mean much to you now, by the end of the program you will be an expert!
