Key Benefits of a Degree Apprenticeship

  • You’ll have a full-time permanent role from day one, and a competitive starting annual salary
  • You’ll study part-time for your degree through University of South Wales – whilst being able to put your new skills into practice in your day to day role
  • You’ll be in a supportive environment, with flexibility such as study leave to help you out
  • Did we mention it’s 100% free? You’ll get the best of both worlds – with all the benefits of a job with a prestigious company and those of being a student at one of the best universities in the UK.
  • You will study for a BSc Honours degree in Digital & Technology Solutions whilst applying what you are learning and making an impact in one of our exciting roles.

What’s the catch you ask? Well actually there isn’t one… you don’t need to be a techie, but we do ask that you’re as passionate as we are about the ways tech can be applied in the real world.

You will need to be flexible and able to travel to different offices and client sites after your first 3 months. During the first couple of months you will experience an induction and training programme, followed by a number of weeks on campus at University of South Wales.

We have a number of different roles based in South Wales. These include Technical Consultant, Software Developer, IT Support Consultant, Insights & Data Consultant working with technologies such as SAP and Microsoft. If you reach the digital assessment stage, we will talent pool you towards the most suitable role based on your background and passion.
