Requirements and prospects

Desired skills

We are looking for someone who can use a range of learning resources to develop new skills, such as online, books and trial and error. You will definitely need to enjoy learning and exploring, as there’s always something new to master in this industry and everything changes pretty fast. 

Whilst it is an absolute must that you enjoy programming, coding, and building websites and/or applications, development is not just about code!  You need to be able to communicate well with your team and maybe clients too. 

You’ll also need to be reliable and have a can-do approach to your workload. Asking questions is often key to developing new skills quickly but you will also be required to research and learn things by yourself.

Personal qualities

Someone with an enthusiastic and professional attitude and a commitment to learning new skills. 

You will need to be punctual, reliable, honest and have a strong work ethic. You must be able to work as part of a team and contribute to team meetings, but also be able to work on your own to targets and deadlines.

You must be passionate about development, self-motivated, determined to learn and develop new skills and driven to succeed.

Desired qualifications

No formal qualifications required.

Future prospects

Successful completion of this apprenticeship will give you the knowledge and experience to progress with a career in IT. The broad range of skills gained will serve as an ideal foundation to help you take the next step.

Things to consider

First interviews may be online/phone and successful candidates may be given some online learning resources to work through before attending the second interview.
