We are looking for enthusiastic web developers who are keen to learn and add to their existing web development skills. They will learn web development in a workplace environment.

This is an incredible opportunity to learn the fundamental skills necessary to start a career in web development. Training is provided by highly skilled professional web developers who will equip you with the knowledge and experience to fast track your way to becoming a web developer. Everything you learn during the training sessions will be absolutely current and directly applicable to your work. Online training is provided to very quickly teach you the foundational languages of web development. Throughout the apprenticeship placement you will learn more languages and begin to specialise in your chosen area.

In the workplace you will be designated a Mentor - an experienced web developer who will be responsible for your learning at work. Group training will also be provided with other web development apprentices and we use Slack (industry standard messaging app) to keep in touch with all the apprentices, mentors, trainers and past apprentices across the country.

  • Work with the development team on existing and new projects, using HTML, CSS, JavaScript to design, create and improve our single page apps, written using the React framework.
  • Support the development of a new website using the Gatsby Javascript framework.
  • Support the team with the integration of a CMS interface to design, create and update content on our website.
  • Attend discovery and planning meetings to help the team decide what to build

In a Web Development Apprenticeship position, you will join a team of ambitious and passionate developers to learn and contribute to projects for renowned clients. This is an excellent route into a great career. You will be learning current, marketable skills on the job and in training. You will receive practical, no-holds-barred mentoring in how to build sites by a team of influential, world-class, industry experts, learning from a supportive team who will help you to become a better, more rounded developer.

We are looking for people that enjoy programming, coding, and building websites and/or applications. You must be passionate about user experience, self-motivated, determined to learn and develop new skills and driven to succeed.

  • 35 hour work week
  • 30 days vacation plus public holidays
  • Pension scheme
  • Flexible working hours
  • Individual CPD allowance for training and conference attendance

How we will support you as an apprentice

We will guarantee you at least 20% of your time overall is ring fenced and dedicated to your apprenticeship learning and training tasks. We will grant you extra time in the first 3 months; 50% in the first 6 weeks and 35% the following 6 weeks to accelerate your learning. You will be appointed a Mentor in the workplace who is a very experienced developer. You will also be appointed a 'buddy' who will be another point of contact in your day to day activities and there to help if your mentor is not available. You will have a weekly meeting with your mentor and your buddy to review progression and discuss completed and forthcoming tasks.

Requirements and prospects

Desired skills

We are looking for someone who shows an interest in web development and an enthusiasm for learning new things. Someone who uses a range of learning resources to develop new skills, such as online, books or trial and error.

You will definitely need to enjoy learning and exploring, as there's always something new to master in this industry and everything changes pretty fast. Web development is not just about code, you will need to be able to communicate well with your team and maybe clients too.

You'll also need to be reliable and have a can do approach to your workload. Asking questions is often key to developing new skills quickly but you will also be required to research and learn things by yourself.

Personal qualities

Someone with an enthusiastic and professional attitude and a commitment to learning new skills. You will need to be punctual, reliable, honest and have a strong work ethic. You must be able to work as part of a team and contribute to team meetings, but also able to work on your own to targets and deadlines.

Desired qualifications

No formal qualifications required.

Future prospects

The vast majority of Coders Guild candidates retain their position with their employer upon completion of training. As the top growth and ever changing industry, you will have gained the knowledge and experience to progress with your career.

Things to consider

First interviews may be online/phone and successful candidates may be given some online learning resources to work through before attending the second interview.
