Sainsbury's creates Software Developer Apprenticeship scheme

Sainsbury’s is introducing an apprenticeship scheme for software developers to encourage people with an enthusiasm for coding into the industry.

GENERAL MERCHANDISE

Sainsbury's creates Software Developer Apprenticeship scheme

Starting this summer, 10 successful applicants will take part in a bespoke two year programme which will see them sitting at the heart of the supermarket's expanding Digital Lab in Central London.

All apprentices will take part in a six week bootcamp to learn the basics of coding and developing. At the end of the two years,  they will have gained a Level 4 qualification in Software Development as well as all the skills and experience to work as a software developer.

Jon Rudoe, digital and technology director at Sainsbury’s, said: “Over the past year we have grown our digital and technology team to over 900 people. We now want to discover the next generation of coders and give them great opportunities and training in our fast-paced business. By creating these apprenticeships, we’re enabling people to turn their passion for technology into a potential career with us.

“Technology plays a key role in delivering Sainsbury’s strategy; so these apprentices will get the chance to work on projects across our business, from online groceries, to our clothing website, banking and much more. They will also be working alongside some of the most talented people in the industry.”

The closing date for applications is 7 July.
