An EE Apprenticeship is an interesting option for those considering further education or a regular full-time job. To our mind, they offer the best of both worlds – a chance to earn a good wage and gain practical experience in the world of work, while studying towards a formal qualification that will stand you in good stead as your career with us unfolds.
Over the next couple of years, we’ll be taking on around 500 apprentices, split between four business areas. We’ll be looking for fresh new talent to join us in the Retail teams in our 700+ stores up and down the country and the Customer Teams at our contact centres in Plymouth, Merthyr Tydfil, Darlington, Doxford, North Tyneside and Greenock. And we’ll also be saying hello to Head Office apprentices in Darlington (North East), Hatfield (Hertfordshire) and Paddington (London). We’ll be recruiting at various points in the year, so it’s best to keep an eye on the ‘Apply’ section at the bottom of this page for details of current vacancies.
We love being able to give young people the chance to earn money, get hands-on experience and start an exciting career. Which is why we’re so pleased to be recognised for the way we do it – twice in one year. As well as being Highly Commended in the ‘New Entrant into the Apprentice Market’ category at this year’s National Apprenticeship Awards, EE has also made the City & Guilds list of the Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers.
Your 15 months of in-store learning gets up and running with a warm welcome and a five-day induction. Starting out as a Sales Advisor, you’ll learn what EE is all about on the shop floor while getting heaps of encouragement from your Store Manager. You’ll also have a clear performance framework in place, and we’ll do everything we can to support your studies towards a Level 2 Apprenticeship in Retail.
In your first year, your basic salary will be £10,000, rising to over £12,000 after 12 months. And once you’ve been with us for six months, you’ll have the chance to earn some tasty bonuses. It’s a great way to start your retail career – and if you impress us, there’ll be a permanent job offer waiting for you at the end of it.
On our Customer Team Apprenticeship, your first six to 10 weeks will be spent learning everything you need to get going in a contact centre. After that, your 15-month apprenticeship really gets started. As an Advisor, you can choose to work in Customer Service, dealing with everything from billing enquiries to complex technical issues, or in Campaigns where you’ll introduce customers to new products and services. And with regular paid time off to learn at college as you work towards a Level 2 Apprenticeship in Contact Centre Operations in England or Wales, or a Level 3 Apprenticeship in Customer Service in Scotland, we’ll help you study your socks off too.
You’ll start on a basic salary of £10,000, rising to over £12,000 after 12 months. And you’ll also have the chance to earn fantastic bonuses or commission after six months. In fact, if you do well you might find a permanent job offer waiting for you at the end of your apprenticeship.
Join EE on one of our 15-month Head Office Apprenticeships and you’ll find yourself getting to grips with amazing technology and real-life challenges. We have schemes in areas ranging from Digital to Sales Operations and Client Projects to Bids & Contracts, so the breadth of opportunities is huge. But wherever you join, one thing’s for sure: you’ll enjoy real guidance and plenty of support as you study towards a Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in either Business & Administration or an IT-related subject.
You’ll start off on a salary of £15,000, which will jump up to around £17,000 after your first year. And on top of the chance to earn yourself bonuses after six months, you’ll have a shot of getting a permanent role at the end of your apprenticeship. All you need to do is impress.
If you’re aged 16 or over and no longer in full-time education, you’re eligible to apply for an EE Apprenticeship. That said, for some schemes – like our Head Office Apprenticeship – we do ask that you also have at least five GCSEs, including Maths and English at grades A-C.
Age might not be a factor, but we should make it clear that the scheme is designed for those with limited work experience and is focused on helping them develop the skills they need to build a successful career.
It’s important that you’re right for us and that an EE Apprenticeship is right for you. With that in mind, we’ve created a robust recruitment process that starts with you completing an application form, goes on to include pre-screening by the college you’d be studying with, and ends with an EE on-site assessment.
