Gap Years & Apprentices

Gap Years & Apprentices



University isn’t for everyone and here at IBM we have a fantastic alternative. Apprenticeships at IBM are all about picking up new skills and lots of them. It's three years of brilliant training, lots of exposure and an experience you simply couldn't get anywhere else. If you’ve decided to dive straight into the world of work after college we believe our apprenticeship is one of the best learning experience out there.

We offer Apprenticeships in both Business and Technology and with a variety of different roles available we’re bound to have something to suit you.

And that's not all

When you join IBM as an apprentice it is not just about training and qualifications. We have your long-term professional career in mind, so from the day you join us you’ll be considered a permanent employee.

So what are you waiting for? Apply now and see what you can make with IBM.
