What will the apprentice be doing?

We are at the start of one of Experian’s most exciting transformation journeys, where we are migrating some of our legacy products and platforms to Cloud Native architecture, so you will be joining us at a time where you will be able to genuinely shape our technical estate for the future.

As a Software Developer Apprentice:

  • You’ll learn how to design, code, modify and test more complex programs
  • You’ll also enhance your soft skills and learn how to provide basic technical support to users and customers
  • Working with services such as AWS and programming languages such as C#, Java and .NET, you’ll learn about and gain exposure to the full software development lifecycle

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

We’ll help you develop your programming abilities, provide training opportunities and enable you to gain expertise in various aspects of Software Development. You’ll work on real life, exciting projects to gain practical experience and insights into our business.    

Alongside your role, you’ll study towards a BSc (Hons) Digital and Technology Solutions degree at Nottingham Trent University through block release. The duration of the course is 4 years and in addition to your salary, you’ll benefit from fully paid tuition fees, as well as our support every step of the way.

If you choose to join us, you’ll receive industry training, wide-reaching career opportunities and a wealth of support through our Early Careers Network, buddy, line manager & mentor scheme. You’ll also join onto Experian’s structured 2-year Early Careers Development programme, which is packed with workshops, short-courses & online material designed to help kick-start your career.

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

The industry demand and skills gap for Software Developers is increasing daily, which means that it’s the perfect time to launch your career in one of the fastest growing areas! If you’re inquisitive, enjoy problem solving and can work well in a team, this is a career path you don’t want to miss out on.

Following the completion of this apprenticeship, apprentices can expect to step in to a Software Development role, working on many exciting real-life projects across Experian.
