American Express Technology Apprenticeships
Our Apprenticeship Scheme has been designed to nurture our next generation of technical specialists and leaders. With continuous training, a tailored development plan and opportunities to increase your skills throughout, you'll receive support in your placement team from your leader, buddy and mentor to aid you in securing a permanent role in one of our teams. We also offer a competitive salary of £20k, an annual pay increase and bonus, along with other generous benefits.
Training & Development
The apprenticeship programme is intended for people with very limited experience of software development. We will teach all of the skills and tools required to become a full-stack developer, turning you into someone who can work with all different parts of a software program - the database, the backend the service layer and the website component.
Throughout the 18 months, we’ll provide you with continuous training and development, 20% in house classroom-based training with 80% on the job learning. By the end of the training you’ll have undertaken a Level 4 Software Engineer Apprenticeship. You will understand how software goes from an idea to a functional, well-maintained application, and be capable of slotting into lots of different types of teams and projects.
On the job learning
As an Apprentice Software Engineer in our Technology organisation, you will be part of a small, co-located, Agile engineering team. You will gain hands-on experience of coding in your team and have the opportunity to take part in activities such as networking with external start-ups, competing in hackathons and supporting local community work.
A Culture of Inclusion
The diversity of our colleagues and an inclusive culture are two of our greatest strengths. We inspire a culture where differences are embraced and all colleagues are enabled to reach their full potential. At American Express, being yourself matters.
