As an Apprentice Infrastructure Technician (IT) at Google, you will be part of a program that provides the skills you need to become an Infrastructure Technician. The successful candidate will work towards the Level 3 Infrastructure Technician Standard.

Responsibilities

As an apprentice at Google, you will be part of a program that aims to provide the skills you need to become an Infrastructure Technician professional. You will join a team at Google and will be assigned a manager for the duration of your 15-month apprenticeship. You will start in October 2020 with our training provider Just IT, for initial training which is part of the 20% off-the-job training included in the program. After completing your initial training, you will rotate between being onsite at Google and training with Just IT throughout the duration of the apprenticeship.

While onsite, you will have the opportunity to work alongside a team of Googlers (yes, that’s people working at Google!) to solve real life problems. You will get exposure to different roles across the company, including IT Support and Audio-Visual Engineering. You will learn how to apply problem solving skills to real life challenges; pick up new technical skills such as troubleshooting multiple computing platforms, data gathering and analysis, learn about remote infrastructure and fleet management, IT security and policies and other industry practices.

We will equip you with everything you need to know to support our users. You will receive specialized training in networking, infrastructure and multi-platform system administration, and you will develop further skills through direct experience in communication technology (video and voice), hardware, mobile device support and project management.

Google aspires to be an organisation that reflects the globally diverse audience that our search engine and tools serve. We believe that in addition to hiring the best talent, a diversity of perspectives, ideas and cultures leads to the creation of better products and services. Interacting with people in all parts of the company will give you insight into our unique enterprise and corporate culture.
