Fund Management. A reputable, ethical, successful business in this area of the financial services industry. A business that tends to suit those with a strong understanding of people: apart from the manic-maths end of investing, most investment decisions have a large element of understanding how people work and how to judge them. A good place to start your career.
One of those websites that is not kept up to date: expired offers, with no note of when they may open again. The section you want is not 'apprenticeships', which are all at below-degree level, but 'University Scholarship Programme' - a non-standard variant on a degree apprenticeship.

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.
"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.
A British-grown world leader in microprocessor technology. A top-of-the-range opportunity, a technical degree in the core of a technical business, perfect for someone fascinated by microprocessor design. Arm and a leg stuff.
