Be the one driving our largest project forward 

Technical Analyst Apprentices will be working in our Smart Metering team, who are responsible for delivering a multi-billion, multi-year programme. You’ll be working on the world’s largest National Critical Infrastructure projects, supported by the UK Government. Your role will be to support and maintain the existing infrastructure with an exciting opportunity to evolve and support new cloud infrastructure in conjunction with handling data for our triage team requirements. 

 

Build skills for the future 

Develop tools, scripts and technical reports to achieve automation and efficiency across a number of work streams. This is a big programme with more than 250 people working on it, and so far, it has saved around 600 million tons of CO2 admissions, so you’ll leave a huge impact on our business and the community. Our apprenticeship will teach you all about reporting, scripting, developing and investigating, all helping you build a successful future. Day-to-day tasks you will own include: 

  • Extracting data from platforms and logs to investigate reported issues 
  • Supporting incident investigations and producing resolutions within the wider team 
  • Contributing to the improvement of technical capabilities through enhancements of toolsets 
  • Supporting and maintaining the existing big data infrastructure for Triage, with an exciting opportunity to further support the evolution of our cloud-based Strategic data analytics and reporting 

 

What we look for 

This role will revolve around information reporting, so it’s important you have a real passion for analytics and technology. You’ll also work on several projects at once, so you’ll need to be happy to take initiative and comfortable prioritising your workload. Strong problem-solving skills will help you thrive in the role, as will attention to detail, as you will be resolving new problems each day. You will also need at least 2 A-Levels or a Level 3 Apprenticeship, or equivalent, to be considered for the role. 

We’re 100% committed to having a workforce that represents every part of our society, so we’re keen to hear from candidates of all backgrounds and circumstances.

Not only will you have the chance to progress in your role, but there are regular salary progression points throughout the apprenticeship, with an uplift to £33,000 after 12 months and a final salary of £36,000. This role is also hybrid working, primarily working from home with regular visits to the office.

  • 25 days holiday 
  • Your birthday off every year 
  • Employee discounts on mobile, broadband and TV services

What is involved with studying for an apprenticeship?  

Your apprenticeship is made up of learning on the job, but also gaining the academic skills to put into practice in your day-to-day job.  As a result, you’ll complete the apprenticeship as part of a structured learning programme alongside working in the role. The learning programme is made up of a suite of modules and milestones and you’ll be required to evidence your work against these modules via tasks and assignments. For some apprenticeships, you may also undertake additional technical qualifications, which include studying for, and taking an exam. Once you have completed your modules and milestones, you’ll then move to your End Point Assessment (EPA) which is typically made up of an interview and a project. Once you pass this stage, you will receive your apprenticeship qualification with us.
