About IBM

There is no other company like IBM and there is no business professional like the IBMer. We are experts in nearly every technical, scientific and business field. We are citizens of, and apply our expertise in, more than 170 countries. Yet we are united by a single purpose: to be essential. We do that by creating the most advanced technology to change how our clients work and run their businesses. And through them, IBMers change how the world works.   The world is at a major turning point: technology is enabling entirely new forms of business operations, business models, industries and outcomes. We have exponentially more power to reach the full potential of our life's work than any humans before us. This is our vision for the future -- our belief in the rise of you -- this is: You to the power of IBM.

Begin your journey at IBM with skills, not degrees! If you have the right skills, there’s a career for you at IBM.

You’ll work on real projects, with real clients and real bottom-line deliverables. IBMers have the support of over 380,000 colleagues worldwide and work for leaders who reward diverse thinking and bold ideas. Our opportunities for School Leavers will give you everything you need to build a successful career.

Skills development is key to an IBMers success. To help you on your journey of discovery, our cognitive cloud based learning platform learns about you and creates a personalised learning plan. To further enhance your Professional Development, there are opportunities for coaching and mentoring and you even get a dedicated manager. You’ll then have the opportunity to apply your knowledge in a commercial environment, via ‘on the job training’, adding value to IBM and our clients.

Apprenticeship Scheme

Apprenticeships have changed. IBM has changed. It’s not all about bits & bytes, cloud and cognitive. Did you know you can now achieve a management accountant CIMA qualification as an IBM Apprentice? Or become a HR Consultant? Or even become a Graduate with a degree qualification? All through the Apprenticeship route.

Apprenticeships at IBM are all about picking up skills for the workplace and embarking on a long and successful career. We have your professional development in mind from the day you join us as a permanent employee. You will get lots of exposure and an experience you simply can’t get anywhere else.

Salaries start at £18k and our benefits package is highly flexible so it can be tailored to fit your lifestyle and personal circumstances. Why not head over to the website to find out if you are eligible and to meet some IBM Apprentices!

Futures Scheme

You might be uncertain about whether to start work, complete an Apprenticeship or go to University, if that’s you and you are unsure of what to do next, the IBM Futures scheme is for you. This gap year scheme offers you an invaluable opportunity to work with a world-leading company for 12-months, broadening your horizons and giving you a head start in your career.

We offer roles in both Business and Technology and which-ever you choose we’ll give you everything you need to build the career you want, including fantastic support, training and development and a salary of £15k. You will need a minimum of 5 GCSEs at Grade 5-9 or Grade C and above (including Maths and English Language) and must have completed at least 2 years in higher education (A-Levels or Equivalent).

You do not need to have any prior work experience; instead we’re looking for enthusiastic, driven and innovative individuals, with a passion for business and technology.
