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.

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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
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.
