IBM Apprenticeship opportunitiesWhy work at IBM?

At IBM, work is more than a job—it's a calling. To build. To design. To code. To consult. To think along with clients and sell. To make markets. To invent. To collaborate. Not just to do something better, but to attempt things you've never thought possible. To lead in this new era of technology and solve some of the world's most challenging problems.

Apprenticeships range from Level 3 to Level 6 and each pathway gives you everything you need to start your career in the industry.  Degree Apprenticeships allow you to work and achieve a Bachelors Honours degree at the same time. You will be doing a real role at IBM and using what you learn in the workplace as part of your degree.

Apprentices on our Digital & Technology Solutions Degree Apprenticeship are currently studying at University of Exeter and Manchester Metropolitan University. Choice of University is made in response to the needs of our IBM businesses. Time at University is typically one day a week either on site or via online education and you will be required to work during University vacations.
