About Dstl

The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) ensures that our innovative science and technology contribute to the defence and security of the UK. We provide the UK Government with specialist science and technology research, advice and analysis – much of which is operationally critical with the potential to save many lives.

Cyber Degree Apprenticeship

Dstl employs some of the world’s brightest people. We are always on the lookout for talented, dedicated, creative and innovative individuals to join us.

If you have a passion for science and technology, we have an exciting opportunity in our Cyber and Information Systems Division to undertake a Cyber Degree Apprenticeship. You will be joining our team of highly skilled and dedicated employees based at our Porton Down site in Salisbury.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn from colleagues who are experts in their field, and gain insights that can only come from real world experience. The roles we offer are different to a stereotypical ‘computer hacker’ role and we will draw on your interests by expecting you to think creatively about your work.

The role of a Cyber Degree Apprentice will be integral to supporting the development of the UK’s cyber, security and defence capabilities. Work as part of a team to develop and deliver scientific, software or engineering solutions to the UK’s defence & security issues.

At the end of the scheme you will have had a good mix of academic and work-based learning experiences to ensure you develop the skills that will support you and the organisation in the future.

Apprenticeships are a ladder of opportunity, giving young people and adults the chance they deserve to get on and fulfil their potential. Dstl apprenticeships give you the opportunity to earn while you learn. We have a diverse and inclusive workforce making us an employer of choice.

At Dstl, as well as a rewarding career in defence science and technology, we operate a broad total reward and recognition package including:

  • 25 days annual leave
  • flexible working
  • an on-site gym
  • Restaurants & other facilities

As a member of the 5% club, we’re committed to ensuring that 5% of our workforce are apprentices, graduates or sponsored students on a structured programme over the next five years.

The Level 6/BSc Degree Cyber apprenticeship will be a 4 year fixed term appointment.

All posts require standard Security Clearance (SC). This role is only open to UK Nationals. Due to the sensitivity of the work, candidates must be able to meet the minimum requirements for Developed Vetting (DV) and for this an applicant must have resided in the UK for the previous 10 years.
