About the opportunity provider and role

Fujitsu is a global technology leader that delivers behind the scenes technology that you use every day, whether in your leisure time or during the working day. They keep the systems going that people use to manage their finances, shop in-store or online, consume energy or use government services. They employ over 7,000 people in the UK and are now looking for 30 degree apprentices to join their team providing ServiceNow solutions.

Successful candidates will have the opportunity to earn whilst studying towards a BSc (Hons) Digital and Technology Solutions Degree using a blended learning approach. The majority of learning will be online one day per week but there will be 3 weeks per year of face-to-face learning on campus in London (travel expenses will be covered). The rest of the time will be spent on the job. More information about the course can be found here.

Apprentices will receive lots of support to allow them to perform to the best of their ability in their role. They will be line managed and receive coaching and mentoring from other Fujitsu employees. They will also be part of Fujitsu’s 24 month modular development program alongside other apprentices and graduates.

Diversity and Inclusion are important to Fujitsu and the company has been accredited as a Stonewall LGBT inclusive employer for 4 years running, and as a Disability Confident Employer by the Department for Work and Pensions. They have also been recognised by Business In The Community as a Top 50 employer for Women.

Key responsibilities

While working towards their qualification successful candidates will:

  • develop the technical expertise needed to develop innovative digital and technology solutions.
  • undertake core and specialist courses that are invaluable for anyone wishing to upskill or enter a role within Digital and Technology Services.
  • learn how to successfully deliver technology-enabled solutions to customers in a range of areas, including software, business and systems analysis, cybersecurity, data analysis and network infrastructure.
  • have the opportunity to become a ServiceNow Certified Systems Administrator.
  • have the opportunity to put into practice what you’ve learned and continue developing as you work.
  • eventually specialise as an IT Consultant, Data Analyst or Business Analyst, depending on personal interests and strengths, and the needs of the business.


Successful candidates must:

  • have a real interest in technology
  • be able to evidence an existing or predicted GCSE grade 9-4 (A*-C) in Maths, English and IT
  • be able to evidence 3 existing or predicted A-Levels (or equivalent) at Grades A*-C in any subject
  • Note that if candidates do not have the traditional qualifications listed above, but have prior learning and skills developed from the workplace, these will be considered on a case by case basis.
  • have a right to work in the UK


While not essential Fujitsu is committed to improving its internal diversity and applications from candidates who were eligible for Free School Meals, whose parents didn’t attend university or who have spent time in care or as a carer are particularly welcome.

How to apply with support from Talent RISE

Simply Complete this online form

All candidates will ultimately need to apply directly to Fujitsu, but as a specialist digital-tech youth employment charity Talent RISE can help eligible candidates to create or strengthen their CVs, submit their application and prepare for assessment/interview.

If you feel this support would be valuable, then follow the first link immediately above and email a copy of your existing CV (if available) to andy.chaggar@talentrise.org no later than Wednesday 17 November. Note to avoid bottlenecks we encourage interested candidates to get in touch as soon as possible.

Note that we assert a charities exemption from the Equalities Act and can only support candidates aged 30 or under. If you are aged over 30 you can apply directly to Fujitsu.

Further assessment by the opportunity provider

All candidates will be asked to submit a formal application to the employer and attend a virtual assessment centre in late Nov or early Dec. If a lack of tech is a barrier for candidates the employer can consider face to face assessments instead.
