Job Description

Learn from the best! Apprenticeships at IBM are all about picking up new skills – and lots of them. It’s three years’ worth of brilliant training, loads of exposure and the kind of experience you simply couldn’t get anywhere else. If you’ve decided to dive straight into the world of work after college (and if you’re as fascinated as we are by technology and how it can change business), our Apprenticeship Scheme is one of the best learning experiences out there.

Software Tester

Software Test Specialists are essential in the development of our client solutions. They are experts at finding and fixing problems, even before they become issues!

As a Software Tester, you will be assisting our key clients as they introduce new technologies and software’s into their business. Not only that, but you’ll also be responsible for designing and preparing test plans, reporting test activity results and most importantly, playing a vital role in your team!

If you’re enthusiastic, curious, have a desire to be analytical and creatively solve problems whilst enjoying being a part of an integrated team, then this role is for you!

What we look for:

  • You don't need to be studying business or technology A-levels, but you must have a keen interest in both.
  • You must have achieved at least 5 GCSEs (or equivalent) at Grade C or above including Maths and English Language (this equates to a grade 4-9 in Maths and English Language from 2017 onwards) and at least 64 UCAS points (if completing A-levels from 2017 onwards) or 160 UCAS points (if completing A-levels in 2016 or earlier). We also except Level 2 Skills Tests as a GCSE equivalent in Maths and English.
  • You will need to be mobile – base locations are across the UK (including but not limited to London, Hursley (near Winchester) and Portsmouth), however the work will be project based and typically you’ll find yourself working at a client site which requires extensive travel and staying away from home during the week.
  • You must be authorised to work in the UK.
