Apprenticeships at Zircon
Apprenticeships have come a long way from where they first started. Having shed the surrounding stigma, they have become widely accepted as a viable option for both school leavers looking to start out on their chosen career path, and those seeking to make a complete change in career.
Here at Zircon we recognise just how much of a difference an apprenticeship program can make. We believe that apprenticeships should provide a means for individuals to gain confidence in their abilities, while opening the opportunity to experience the in’s and out’s of working life.
About Apprenticeships at Zircon
By becoming an apprentice at Zircon, you will be joining a team of talented individuals who are ready and willing to support you through every step of your journey. You will have the opportunity to work with software at every stage of the engineering lifecycle, from requirements all the way through to testing, and assist in the delivery of systems that will have a real-world impact.
As you may expect from an apprenticeship, during your four years of study most of your time will be spent at our office in Trowbridge, where you will receive training in live software development, and various languages such as C#, C++, C, Python. However, for one day each week, you will be attending lectures at college.
Of course, as an apprentice, you will be earning a wage as you learn, however the perks don’t end there. You will also be open to receive the same benefits as the rest of our members of staff, including:
- 25 Days Holiday entitlement (with additional days for bank holidays, and a number of days during the Christmas period)
- Company bonus scheme (dependant on both company and individual performance)
- Auto-enrolment onto the company pension scheme (please note that certain criteria do apply)
