What you’ll get as an apprentice

- using big data and analytics
- artificial intelligence
- micro services
- application programming interfaces (APIs)
- hybrid cloud services
- cyber security
- network design
We combine this hands-on experience with virtual learning, delivered by our partner provider, including one-to-ones with tutors and mentors, lab tutorials, and proper research projects. You’ll work on a one-to-one basis with a dedicated skills coach, and have weekly meetings with your tutor.
You’ll benefit from a stable job within the Civil Service, with plenty of career prospects, as part of a diverse, vibrant community.
You’ll also be based in one of our digital hubs, but we’re set up for remote working too. You’ll benefit from all the tech you need to get you up and running at home while social distancing.
DWP Digital has diverse customers, and is an inclusive employer. We welcome applications from diverse candidates.
