Various departments and locations across Oxford
We have an exciting opportunity for you to join the University of Oxford's Apprentice Talent Pool for September 2024. Becoming an apprentice at the University of Oxford is an excellent opportunity to gain practical experience and training. For more information, please visit: https: // apprenticeships.web.ox.ac.uk/talent-pool-2024-apply-now
We offer a vast range of apprenticeship programmes, from Business Administration, Human Resources and Finance, to Laboratory Technicians, Engineering, Horticulture and Digital Marketing. The full list can be found at the link above, along with the entry requirements for each one.
By applying to our talent pool your eligibility to undertake an apprenticeship will be checked by the University Apprenticeship team and candidates meeting our initial criteria will be contacted to discuss your skills and experience in further detail, what apprenticeship programmes you are most interested in and to answer any questions that you have. You will then be sent job descriptions for relevant apprenticeships across the University to consider. If you would like to be put forward for the opportunity, you will be asked to confirm and send a short personal statement outlining how you meet the selection criteria for this role. Your application will then be shared with the recruiting department for shortlisting.
This recruitment will run until 8 April 2024, however, please continue to look at our website as further opportunities may also become available in the future.
You will be passionate about starting a career in your chosen apprenticeship programme and excited about the opportunity of becoming an apprentice at the University of Oxford. You may be starting your career or you may be looking for a career change.
To complete the apprenticeship, you will need to evidence passes at 9-4 or A-C in GCSE (or equivalent) Maths and English. Some apprenticeships may also have industry specific qualifications. For those sitting their GSCEs in Summer 2024, we would need evidence of your predicted grades.
For all applicants regardless of prior qualification, the training provider will ask you to complete an initial assessment during the application process. There are also government residency requirements for Apprenticeship funding (e.g. all applicants must already have right to work in the UK) which we will be able to advise on.
What we offer
Our apprentices are never on their own, you will benefit from a supportive environment working in collaboration with the rest of our committed team. You will also be supported by the central apprenticeship team and you will join our growing network of apprentices within the university. You will have the opportunity to become an apprenticeship ambassador for the University and region.
We will provide you with a welcoming and inclusive workplace, offering support and development opportunities that will enable you to progress and do your best work. We recognise diversity as our strength, vital for innovation and creativity, and we aspire to build a truly diverse community, which values and respects every individual's unique contribution.
Over 80% of our apprentices continue with us in the role they have been trained for after their Apprenticeship and that is just the start of their career.
You will receive 38 days' annual leave inclusive of Bank Holiday and fixed closure dates, discounted travel, an excellent contributory pension scheme, and student discount. You will also be part of the University's annual apprenticeship awards.
If you have any questions, please get in touch with us on [email protected].
Please note, by applying for an apprenticeship with the University of Oxford, you are giving permission for the application to be shared with the relevant training provider for the programme.
