Technical Apprenticeship (Deleted)
Earley, United Kingdom
Our exciting Apprenticeship is for people aged 16-24 years old and gives you the opportunity to start your career earlier than most.
An Apprenticeship is a genuine alternative to university, we offer full training while you work helping you to get ahead in a working environment.
In addition to receiving great experience and guidance from the start, you can also avoid expensive tuition fees and start earning and learning faster than traditional education. Just imagine what you could have achieved at Microsoft in the time it takes you to complete a university degree.
We don’t believe in the traditional notion of “work experience” either. At Microsoft you are given real responsibility from the outset, with an employment contract for the full duration of your Apprenticeship and funded training relevant to your role. When you complete your Apprenticeship, you’ll receive a nationally recognised apprenticeship qualification and support to help you continue your career at Microsoft.
Our Apprenticeship programme has been carefully created to form the bridge between academic and professional life. Join the Technical stream of our Apprenticeship programme and you will have an extensive range of responsibilities and key tasks to undertake. You will be working in an exciting, ever-changing and fast-paced environment as part of a team.
The Technical stream is ideally suited to someone with a strong interest in IT. You will have a natural flair for technology and the desire to understand more. So you must have a passion for technology (but not necessarily technical training or qualification), a curiosity to learn and excellent communication skills. We are looking for enthusiastic and self-motivated people who want to develop the skills and knowledge to be able to present confidently, communicate easily, solve problems, strive for success and contribute towards the overall success of the business area and team you work within.
