O2 offer further six apprenticeships

Telecoms giant O2 has created a further six vacancies on its groundbreaking apprenticeship program. The company is calling for applications in time for a 20 September deadline. As part of the course, budding apprentices are invited to apply for a mixture of Advanced and Higher apprenticeships available across a variety of directorates, including finance, ‘think big’, operations, and sales & Ssrvice.

The scheme is structured to last between 18 months and two years, and all successful applicants will be provided with in-depth training, designed to get them set for a career in digital, all at the very heart of one of the UK’s largest tech companies.


‘We recruit for attitude and train for skill’

Ann Pickering, O2 HR director, said: “At O2, we’ve run a fantastic apprenticeship programme for many years, knowing that the young talent we hire is the future of our business. Our apprentices give us the opportunity to harness the skills and fresh perspectives of an ambitious, digitally-savvy generation. This is why we’ve expanded the scheme this year to take on our largest group of apprentices yet, across an even broader variety of roles.

Ultimately, we recruit for attitude and train for skill so we want to bring people into the business who are willing to learn and above all excited about a career at O2. If aspiring apprentices can make that enthusiasm and passion shine in their applications, they’ll be off to a good start.”
