Technology Apprenticeship Programme
The Technology services we provide underpin every area of the global Fidelity business.
What do we do?
The technology services we provide underpin every area of the global Fidelity business: investment, revenue, operations, compliance, finance, legal, marketing, customer service. Beyond this, we provide day-to-day infrastructure services including data centres, networks, proximity services, security, voice, incident management and remediation.
What will I be doing?
Over your two year apprenticeship programme, you will be based in our Kingswood office in Surrey, where you’ll not only learn how technology makes our organisation work better, but also build your knowledge of the business itself.
You’ll work with colleagues in multiple business areas, as well as those across the wider technology group, and gain a breadth of insight into how we operate as a business while networking with senior managers from day one.
You will complete a Level 3 apprenticeship relevant to your role. At every stage, your development will be underpinned by the best training and professional certified courses with the aim of employing you full-time once you have completed your apprenticeship qualification.
Depending on your role and the team you join, you’ll work with various business teams to understand and document their needs, then liaise with developers and system architects to clearly define those requirements and implement solutions to meet them. You’ll gain a wide range of experience from development to testing, requirements specification to problem resolutions and solution design.
What we look for
We want people that are interested in both the industry and the sector but ultimately those that are looking for a career which will reward them in both job satisfaction and development.
You will be highly driven with the intellectual curiosity for progression. You don’t need to have an ICT related background, but an interest in computing, systems and engineering would help you adapt quicker.
You will have the ability to build your network with individuals from a range of business cultures and backgrounds, both internally and externally.
People with an innovative and inquisitive disposition are those best suited for our apprenticeships as you explore the fusion between existing and new technologies.
We look for candidates who have a minimum of three C’s at A level (or equivalent) and who have already obtained at least five GCSEs between A*-C (or equivalent), two of which we prefer to be English and Maths.
Salary and Benefits
We invest a lot of time and resource into our apprentices, ensuring you receive a really strong remuneration package including salary and lifestyle benefits. You will receive a starting annual salary of £17,500. All apprentices receive a £500 welcome bonus upon starting as well as a bonus after year one of £1,000 provided that they are on track with their qualification.
We’ve worked hard to ensure our new process is fast and efficient. That means our application deadline is not about just ‘getting your foot’ in the door by the 24th February, you need to apply, pass the on-line assessments and submit your video-interview by the 24th February as well.
