Program your future

Tech’s always changing, so only thirsty, adventurous minds need apply.

You’ll be empowered to own your work, but you’ll have a supportive team so you won’t end up with the weight of the world on your shoulders. Our Business Analysts use their brilliant communication and analysis skills to bridge the gap between our business and technology teams. Our Software Engineers write the code with us to design and develop our computer software and our Solution Architects help us problem solve in new ways. And of course, our Project Managers keep everything on track!

So if you love chewing over puzzles, innovating and playing for the team, then a career in our Technology teams could be for you.

What you’ll be doing

With us you’ll never get bored – each day will be different from the last. But you can be certain that every day, you’ll be solving problems for your customers and colleagues. Whether creating tools or developing innovative technology, you’ll be part of the genius team that keep our systems running and push our technology further. You’ll have a lot of ownership too, as your team will be working on the technology that runs our websites, mobile apps and systems.

So if you’re creative and proactive, and you love technology, we want to hear from you. Help us develop the very latest technology for our customers and keep us ahead of the curve.

What you can expect

Our apprenticeships can last from between 18 months to around four years depending on which apprenticeship scheme you join. Our Level 3 Apprenticeship will give you qualifications equivalent to A-Levels, or a Level 4 Apprenticeship is equivalent to a foundation degree. If you join the Level 6 Apprenticeship in England or the Graduate Apprenticeship in Scotland, you’ll get a degree. Whichever scheme you participate in, you will learn on the job, without any of the debt of traditional study routes.

We also provide access to a suite of online learning features where you can push yourself further, faster.

Where you’ll be based

Our apprentice roles are in York, Norwich, Bristol and Perth. We love working in these vibrant cities, and we’ll tell you why.

York is a city steeped in its ancient Viking roots. Walled by ancient brick, it is a beautiful place to live and work, which is why so many young hipsters have set up camp within the city.

Norwich is equally quaint, with many a cobbled alleyway meandering off the main high street. And we’re very pleased to be a Community Partner of recently promoted Norwich City. So if you’re a football fan, now is a great time to join us in this lively east corner of England.

If you like your music, Bristol is the place for you. Hear the coolest musicians on the scene today at small, intimate gigs in lively bars across this cultured city. Take a stroll along the canals and enjoy the colourful street art that brings Bristol to life.

Or if it’s a river-side town surrounded by rolling green hills and wild Scottish countryside you’re after, then Perth is where you’ll want to work.
