Discover creativity. Develop technology. Join the buzz.

The Intelligence Agencies protect the UK from threats to national security. As partners in the intelligence community, GCHQ help safeguard Britain’s people, interests and businesses from various types of threats. Everyone who works with us, works towards that goal. We’re proud to collaborate and even prouder to work with purpose.

We’ve been a part of the buzzing Manchester tech scene for some time now, taking advantage of a tech hub that’s full of creativity. As part of this, we’re looking for apprentices to join us in September 2020. Join our team and help the UK government operate confidently in cyber space. It’s all part of keeping the UK safe. Using some of the most sophisticated electronic equipment, you’ll take on real challenges in software engineering, information assurance or cyber operations. And over three years, you’ll work towards a BSc Honours degree in digital and technology solutions - software development.

It’s really important work, but you won’t do it alone. Along with other apprentices, you’ll enjoy a mix of uni-accredited classroom learning and work-based placements. And as part of a collaborative environment, you’ll find lots of support and friendly faces that are always ready to help.

To join us, you’ll need three A-levels, minimum grades B, B, C including two in STEM subjects.  Ideally, you’ll have an interest in programming and tech, but, more importantly, you’ll be keen to learn. So whether you’ve just left school, or you have some experience, we’ll teach you everything else you need to know.
