What will the apprentice be doing?

You will be completely supported throughout your apprenticeship as we always aim to ensure any apprentices want to stay working with us upon competition of their course.

The role will include but is not limited to:

  • Working with our in-house Apple Certified Macintosh Technicians (ACMT) to ensure a high quality of working and service.
  • To understand and successfully carry out our refurbishment process on various product lines such as iMacs, MacBooks, iPads and Mac Pros.
  • Cross-functional working within the company alongside other departments where/when needed.
  • You will be working within our high performing technical team to deliver exceptional quality systems to our consumer market.
  • Included in our refurbishment process you will be required to thoroughly test all components of our products.
  • Grade machines based on condition in cohesion with our grading guidelines.

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

Apprentice's will be required to do four days a week practical learning within our Technical Department working on machines with one day a week away from this to complete necessary coursework which will also be in-house.

  • IT Solutions Technician Level 3 
  • Maths and English Functional skills Level 2 if an equivalent grade has not been achieved. 

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

Upon the successful competition of the course, the option of permanent employment will be explored. Should the candidate wish to and should they also be an appropriate fit for the company then the role of ‘Technician’ will be offered. This can then lead to eventual opportunities of promotion to a ‘Senior Technician’ and the chance to become certified as an Apple Certified Macintosh Technician.
