Our Digital apprenticeship path has been designed for those who want to develop a career in an area that plays a huge role at AJ Bell. During this four-year programme you have the opportunity to rotate around different teams in our Technology Services Department, from Software Engineering to Infrastructure and Information Security, in order to gain a broad understanding of IT and change provision in a fast-paced regulated Financial Services business. At the same time as learning on the job, you will study for a BSc in Digital Technology Solutions with our academic provider, Manchester Metropolitan University. You will be given the opportunity to specialise in Software Engineering, Data Analysis or Cyber Security Analysis, and this specialism will become the focus of your degree studies. As well as spending a day each week studying at university, your fees will be paid and you'll be earning a competitive salary and much more!

At the start of the apprenticeship you will enjoy a tailored induction programme with us and Manchester Metropolitan University. This will give you the chance to get to know our business and develop your skills on the job, while at the same time continuing on a development programme designed to help you invest in your personal growth and your future with AJ Bell.We will also provide mentoring and ongoing training, including and in-house technical and professional development training, enabling you to progress your understanding of the digital aspects of financial services.
