IT Apprenticeship (Enterprise Infrastructure)

Are you currently fixing your family & friends computers & WIFI?

Do you love tinkering with computers and technology in your spare time? Do you own custom gamer PC, a Raspberry Pi, or other hobby computer? Have you tried installing Windows or Linux on an old PC or helped family & friends “speed¬up" their computer?

If the answer to one or more of these questions is “yes”, then you might be a good candidate to become an apprentice in Illumina’s IT team. We build maintain & support the European IT systems supporting over 500 servers and almost 10 Petabytes of storage.

We are looking for talented and enthusiastic individuals to work with 14 diverse IT professionals in, High-performance Computing, Support Services, Enterprise Infrastructure and Networking.

In the beginning, you would be learning the ropes – starting in our End User Support team where you will develop your support & communication skills whilst learning the environment, the technology we use and how Illumina operates.

After developing for three to six months, you will move to the Enterprise Infrastructure to continue your development. In this team you will bring your development skills to help automate and optimise IT processes across the IT team in order to improve efficiency, remove manual work and move towards a "Software Defined IT Infrastructure".

Within the first year you will also help the team with our migration of all existing systems to a brand new datacentre at our new building.

As well as technical skills, by the end of three years you will hopefully have developed the skill and confidence to work independently, diagnose and fix complex problems, and contribute your ideas or discuss your experiences in meetings. You will have a sense of working in a successful IT team and telling your friends how proud you are to be part of that.
