At Telent, we offer apprenticeships and graduate schemes to encourage young people to develop their skills. These schemes are an excellent way for young people to take the first step of their career in engineering and telecoms as we provide hands-on experience of high-profile projects, as well as structured training, mentoring and support. So far this year, 22 new apprentices and 16 graduates have been deployed across the business with a future job at Telent in mind for them upon completion.
Bright generation of talent
Back in November last year, Telent posted its upcoming graduate vacancies, for both Project Management and Engineering programmes. Telent launched its apprenticeship vacancies in February 2020, coinciding with National Apprenticeship Week. With various placements, graduate schemes and apprenticeships provide the perfect platform for talented individuals at the start of their career to make their mark on the industry and work alongside our teams of experienced, friendly faces, with the view to learn and develop.
Telent received a total of 2,871 applications across all programmes. This involved digital campaigns, careers fair outreach and working with three apprenticeship providers to encourage young people to start careers in the cutting-edge telecoms sector.
