Asda Technology Apprenticeships

Technology at ASDA is so much more than just keeping the checkouts working! 

Our Technology Apprenticeship Programmes, commencing in September 2022, are ideal if you have left school, college or even University in the past couple of years, have a real passion for technology, and want an opportunity to be part of a business that touches the everyday lives of millions, in store and online.

The variety of apprenticeship programmes we have available are designed to give you a real deep-dive into technical specialisms such as:  Level 3 Infrastructure Engineer, Level 4 Data, Level 4 Cyber Security, Level 4 Project Management and Level 4 Business Analyst. In addition, you will receive all of the ongoing training and support you need to develop to your full potential. 

Join a team of over 400 colleagues in our growing tech department and help shape our digital future. 

About You

That spark of potential we see in you is far more important to us than any previous experience or qualifications. Of course, having a real interest in tech is a bit of a given, but that doesn't mean you need to have any previous tech experience. A love of problem solving is the real super skill we're looking for. Someone who is curious, open to new ideas, enthusiastic and has the commitment needed to balance learning and working.

What qualities are we looking for in candidates?

Tenacious 

Customer focused 

Proactive and good at problem-solving

We're very open-minded about where you might be right now, however we do look for a minimum of 5 GCSE grades A to C or 9 to 4, including English and Maths.

Hear from our current Technology Apprentices

Kamilia Level 3 Tech Apprentice

Kamilia left college in 2016 unsure of her career options. After working in a variety of different roles, she chose to pursue her passion for tech and joined our Level 3 apprenticeship.  She says: 'I've always had an interest in tech and took this role as an opportunity to start a career in something that I'm passionate about.  I chose Asda after hearing about how all the systems that were integrated with Walmart were going to be replaced, which seemed like a very exciting thing to be part of from a tech perspective. I'm currently really enjoying my role in the QA testing team, and I'm learning a lot by getting involved in different prospects'.

Connor Level 4 Business Analyst

Connor took a huge career change from the animal sector into tech through an Asda apprenticeship, and continues to progress, showcasing how we're building critical skills in the digital/data space to ensure our business remains innovative. He joined the business on a Level 3 Software Development Technician apprenticeship and is now going onto the Level 4 Business Analyst course.  He says that the combination of academic knowledge alongside hands-on experience is invaluable.

Rachel Level 3 Tech Apprentice

Rachel worked for another retailer up until 2021, unfortunately she was informed that she would be made redundant.  Not knowing what career path to take, she decided to apply for an ASDA Tech apprenticeship starting on a level 3 infrastructure engineering programme and she has never looked back. After being in a service support role for head office for 6 months Rachel was then approached to join a new cost and optimisation team being set up within tech whilst continuing to do her Level 3. Rachel says "Asda has given me the chance to pursue a career I'm passionate about and continues to support me with my apprenticeship."

 
The Rewards

People have long and rewarding careers at Asda because there are so many opportunities to explore and the business is always changing. To set you up on the right path, you'll have a dedicated mentor and support team around you during your apprenticeship.

The other big advantage of being on an apprenticeship is you'll be earning as you're learning. As well as a competitive starting salary, bonus scheme, pension and free city centre car parking, you will also receive a discount card for all your ASDA shopping. We will also make sure you have all the support you need on your apprenticeship, including 20% of your time 'off the job' for dedicated learning.

Just imagine the possibilities...
