Prepare for success.
If you’d love to embark on a technology career in a company that’s at the forefront of tech innovation, an apprenticeship with TalkTalk could be exactly what you’re looking for. Not only will you be part of one of our highly skilled tech teams from day one, you’ll also be working towards a qualification, in some cases up to degree level. We’ll cover the costs of your study, and pay you a competitive salary.
Over the course of the programme, you’ll gain job-specific skills in a fast-paced working environment in London or Manchester, working alongside industry experts who’ll give you support, guidance, and lots and lots of inspiration. You’ll also be supported by a team of Skills Coaches who’ll come into the offices to see how you’re getting along, and to give you advice and coaching. You can expect plenty of responsibility (we think tackling new challenges is one of the best ways to learn) so you definitely won’t be sitting in the background or running around making the coffees. You’re going to be a valued member of the team doing a real job in a specialist area like software development, network engineering or data analysis.
Our Apprenticeship programme opens for applications in July and begins in September 2017. We know that the recruitment process can feel a bit daunting so make sure you check out our hints and tips before you get started with your application.
