What it’s like working in this role
As an Information Communications Technician you’ll be working as part of a collaborative team to maintain, repair & testing for internal IT Infrastructure and items required in the field including Desktop PCs and Laptops, Telephones, and Servers as necessary.
No two days will be the same as an ICT apprentice while working for IDEX, one day you could be fixing a laptop and next you’re troubleshooting a network issue! Under the instruction and guidance of your mentor you’ll spend time supporting the business to maintain accurate computerised records and making sure issues are logged to appropriate SLA’s and KPI’s.
What could the future look like?
IDEX UK Ltd is committed to developing emerging talent. Individuals can use the apprenticeship plans to jumpstart a successful career in a skilled industry through on-the-job training and online study.
Our goal is to transform you into a fully competent technician, ideally open to accepting a full-time, permanent position within the team, with opportunities for progression in the future.
Whilst previous experience is great, we at Tiro are always open to wildcards. We’re not just interested in experience and qualifications; we’re looking for someone with the right attitude and aptitude to fit right in at IDEX UK Ltd.
It’s about enthusiasm, not school results. In our experience the most successful apprentices are those who have driven to find out more about the sector, can be up front about what they do and don’t already know, are considerate, self-reflective, and impatient to learn the job role!
Skills and characteristics
The ideal candidate will be reliable and highly motivated. They will have a keen eye for detail and be able to work to instruction. They will be a methodical, accurate person who take a sense of satisfaction from ensuring we get the testing parameters right every time for our customers.
Even if that doesn’t sound quite like you, but you still think you could do a great job in the role, get in touch. Someone who knows their own mind and isn’t afraid to have an opinion. You’ll give the role your all and will fundamentally be hungry to learn and most importantly willing to take the first step into a life changing career.
So how does the apprenticeship work?
At Tiro we’re obsessed with changing lives through science and technology apprenticeships so we can’t wait to have you on board.
Over 18 months, you’ll devote 20% of your time to working towards a Level 3 Information Communications Technician Apprentice. You’ll be trained by an expert tutor from Tiro, who’ll make sure you develop the knowledge, skills, and work habits you’ll need to succeed in your apprenticeship.
Being an apprentice is hands-on, so you’ll get the chance to learn things you might otherwise not have experienced in a university or college environment.
Are you ready to join a different kind of company where our people, our culture, and our commitments are centered around providing trusted solutions that improve lives around the world?
