We are on the lookout for talent like you – students and school leavers who are passionate about technology and hungry to learn. On our Business Degree Apprenticeship you’ll be proving yourself from day one – solving problems, taking responsibility and making decisions.
The best thing about joining us is that while you may start working in one area, the opportunity to move internally is huge, so you can take control of your career from your first day. And with open-ended prospects for advancement, you’ll have every opportunity to reach the top.
We work in a project based environment and you will have the opportunity to work across a wide range of roles and industries and - there is no ‘typical day’. The programme is sponsored by our North, Energy, Utilities and Telecoms area of the business and you will be based from our Glasgow office, but you should expect some travel to other locations as part of your role. Your work really will vary and that’s the exciting part, it is up to you to shape and develop your career in the direction you want to go, but with the care and support of others.
Join our programme and you’ll study towards a BSc (Hons) IT Management for Business one day a week at Edinburgh Napier University, whilst spending the other four days a week developing your career on real projects here with us. You’ll also benefit from a competitive starting salary and all the support you need to succeed. No one day is the same at with us, meaning you can shape and develop your career throughout the course of the programme then continue with us after graduation.
This course will take four years to complete and, with our sponsorship, you won’t have to pay a single penny in tuition fees. We’ll even provide the course resources and materials required, so there’s no need to worry about textbooks either. You can also use your laptop you are given when you join us to use at University. Individuals who participate in the scheme are able to access the same learning opportunities as those who go down the traditional route of direct entry into college or university.
The preferred requirement is 4 Highers at Grade B or above including 1 in Maths, Physics or Computing (equivalent qualifications are accepted) unless you can show strong technical (programming/development) ability through work experience or extra-curricular activities.
- At least 7 Scottish National 5 at grade 1-3 including English or Maths (equivalent qualifications are accepted)
