Advanced Apprenticeship IT Sales

Job Description

Your Role and Responsibilities

Learn from the best! Apprenticeships at IBM are all about picking up new skills – and lots of them. It’s three years’ worth of brilliant training, loads of exposure and the kind of experience you simply couldn’t get anywhere else. If you’ve decided to dive straight into the world of work after college (and if you’re as fascinated as we are by technology and how it can change business), our Apprenticeship Scheme is one of the best learning experiences out there.

Technical Sales Apprentice

Do you enjoy communicating with people?  Do you want to learn about innovative technical and industry solutions?  Then join IBM and become an IT Technical Salesperson!

As an IT Technical Salesperson you'll build relationships with prospects, clients, Business Partners and IBMers across a whole range of industries.  We'll train you up on IBM's cutting edge technology products and services.

This role is very rewarding but also very challenging, so you'll need to be enthusiastic and hard working!

What we look for:
    •    You don't need to be studying business or technology A-levels, but you must have a keen interest in both.
    •    You must have achieved at least 5 GCSEs (or equivalent) at Grade C/4 or above including Maths and English Language. We also except Level 2 Skills Tests as a GCSE equivalent in Maths and English.
    •    You will need to be mobile – base locations are across the UK (including but not limited to London, Hursley (near Winchester) and Portsmouth), however the work will be project based and typically you’ll find yourself working at a client site which requires extensive travel and staying away from home during the week.
    •    You must be authorised to work in the UK.

If so, lets talk you!
