Join IBM. Make an impact.
From helping transform healthcare to improving the retail shopping experience, it's what IBMers do. Our work and our people can be found in all sorts of interesting places. Mathematicians, coders, and web designers contribute to creativity in the kitchen (Watson!), rerouting traffic jams, even designing the next generation fan experience in sports stadiums around the world. It's the kind of thing we've been doing for more than 100 years.
Apple. Twitter. Facebook. Hootsuite. Box. These are just a few of the global partners who work with IBM to develop powerful mobile apps and help enterprises make smarter decisions with data analytics and cloud technology. Join us and be part of a diverse and global team of thinkers and doers – people who want to make an impact, cultivate their expertise and collaborate with some of the world’s top business and technology professionals.
When you join IBM as an Apprentice we have your long-term professional career in mind and from the day you join us you’ll be a permanent employee. You’ll also gain either an ICT or Business Level 4 Higher Apprenticeship qualification, and you’ll be part of one of the world’s leading technology companies.
You’ll be deployed onto a challenging work placement, where you’ll support and learn from experienced professionals across IBM. That could be in any area across the company. During your year you’ll have a great support network. For the day-to-day things, you’ll have a Task Manager who’ll help you with new tasks, manage your workload and give you the opportunity to get involved. You’ll also have an Early Professional Manager looking after your ongoing development and your future career plans.
We offer Apprenticeships in both Business and Technology and with a variety of different roles available we’re bound to have something to suit you. You’ll work with some great clients, too – big names in virtually every industry you could think of. Salaries start at £18k and our benefits package is highly flexible so it can be tailored to fit your lifestyle and personal circumstances.
If you are looking to explore how a business works and learn what makes it successful, then our Business Specialist role is for you. This is an opportunity for you to develop your conscientiousness and curiosity with an in-depth training programme which will help you perform effectively in your role. With the support of your team, you will develop commercial awareness which will enable you to take on roles within project management, HR, operations and delivery. You will become a valuable member of the project team, building on skills from communication and adaptability to planning and organisation. Your contribution will allow our clients’ businesses to be as effective and successful as possible.
What we look for
Energy, creativity and passion are really important to us. We also work in teams all the time, so you need to be someone who’ll thrive in that kind of environment – a great communicator and someone with the ability to lead others. There are other characteristics we look for, too. We call them competencies - think about whether, and how, you can demonstrate them during our application process. We look for eight specific competencies during our Application Process: Adaptability, Communication, Client Focus, Creative Problem Solving, Drive, Teamwork, Passion for IBM and Taking Ownership.
- 5 GCSE's Grade 5-9 (including Maths and English Language)
- 64 UCAS points in A-Levels (or equivalent)
