About the Apprenticeship

For us, digital transformation is constant - not a one-off event. It’s our obsession! And it’s how we forever evolve our technology to improve the lives of our customers.  We continually experiment with ways to make our journeys more intuitive, simple and enjoyable. And we’re constantly testing and trialling ways to give customers faster access to our services, more flexibility - and the richest, most rewarding experience. You’ll need to be the kind of person who’s tech-savvy, loves to work at pace and is always looking for innovative ways of solving problems. There will be tight deadlines sometimes, so flexibility and focus are key, but don’t worry, we’ll give you all the support you need to ensure you succeed! As a software developer you’ll get involved in building, testing, and deploying system, features and technologies. You’ll learn how to understand code and software design as you develop your expertise.
