Big Blue promises jobs for few

We few, we happy few

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

IBM is starting an apprentice scheme for the first time which might just rescue people who got bad news in the post from yesterday's A-level results.

IBM will pluck 20 people to join its IT Specialists. The apprenticeship will involve travelling three or four days a week but you'll be home for the weekends. Applicants need not have computing or business A-levels but should have an interest in such subjects.

They will be taught to provide proof of concept, design, implementation and testing of systems and may also work with sales teams.

The lucky few will be based around the UK including IBM sites in Farnborough, Greenock (Scotland), Hursley (near Winchester), Leeds, Manchester and London. Apprentices will also be required to work at customer sites.

Quango e-skills welcomed the two-year programme. IBM has previously taken on graduate trainees and offered student placements.

The full job description and links to application forms are available here.

Earlier this week BT said it might increase the size of its apprentice scheme after receiving 24,000 applications for 221 placements. ®
