Overview

The big beast in telecommunications in the UK, now with a large overseas presence. Good people to work for. This is a CIMA accounting apprenticeship: a great place to learn and a great name to have on your CV, but worth enquiring before you sign up how you progress from accounting to management within BT - if that is your dream. In some firms it's easy, in others not.

GCG view

You need to be dogged for this one as "we receive thousands of applications for BT apprenticeships every year". This covers all apprenticeship schemes but still sounds somewhat smug. We had no joy trawling through 12 options on the "Our Programmes" page but eventually found a kind lady who filled in most of the details.

  • AIRBUS

    The aeroplane builder: top flight engineering with an emphasis on everything being done perfectly (for which we have often been thankful) and therefore on hands-on skills - graduate recruits get sent to the local FE college for a year before they are allowed near the factory floor. A good employer by all accounts.

  • ACCENTURE

    Accenture is a top-line business consulting company; this apprenticeship is in their IT consulting division, and the embedded degree is a solidly technical one. You will very rapidly be part of building real IT applications; expect to be living out of a suitcase near whichever client you are working for. If you have ambitions to move into their mainstream consulting business, make sure that you understand what this takes: their recruitment into this area is very Oxbridgey, and we are not clear how an IT apprentice could come up-to-status.

  • ARCADIS

    "Design and consultancy for natural and built assets", they say: a top-end global construction company based in Holland but with strong UK roots. This is an apprenticeship that leads to becoming a Chartered Building Surveyor - the top professional qualification with MRICS after your name, and a core role in a business like Arcadis. Long term prospects: the UK CEO is a FRICS; say no more.
