A major Glasgow employer is helping to create the next generation of technology professionals as it launches its new Graduate Apprentice Scheme.

The Student Loans Company (SLC), which employs 1,700 people in Glasgow, has six opportunities for graduate apprentices who will gain a degree in software development  and learn on the job as they work as part of the SLC team.

Based in the organisation’s technology group, the apprentices will help to develop the systems and software SLC uses to effectively deliver student finance across the UK.  They will split their week between work and study, undertaking a degree programme at the University of Glasgow which has been designed with input from SLC.

Lyndsey Gaja, SLC’s Organisational Design and Development Manager said:

“The Graduate Apprenticeship programme is an exciting development for SLC and demonstrates our commitment to investing in colleagues to help them develop and grow.  The roles are in key areas of the business and are part of our strategy to create the knowledge and ability we need for the future.

“The programme builds on our successful internship and Modern Apprenticeship programmes and we continue to work towards identifying even more opportunities to develop talent within our workforce.”

The closing date for applications is 20 August.  Candidates should have a keen interest in software development and can find out more about the roles and the entrance requirements here
