About Jisc

Improving lives through digital transformation

We're a not-for-profit organisation and believe education and research improves lives and that technology improves education and research.

We provide managed and brokered products and services, enhanced with expertise and intelligence to provide sector leadership and enable digital transformation.

Our culture is one of lifelong learning, and if you join the team, you’ll be part of a supportive working environment where everyone’s voice is heard. We'll help you carve a meaningful career where you can try new things, collect new skills and keep them at the cutting-edge.

Our Graduate Program

Our two-year graduate program offers rotations across our technology teams and unique placements in the business. Graduates gain hands-on experience on real projects, mentorship from experts, and exposure to different technical and business areas. This helps graduates determine the right career path matched to their interests and strengths.

We have two tracks - one focused on IT like software development, data, and infrastructure and one focused on all aspects of business leadership. The rotations and placements provide graduates the knowledge, confidence and connections to progress their careers.

Our Apprenticeship Program

Our apprenticeship programs allow you to earn while learning on the job. Apprentices study professional qualifications and receive work-based training in technology, legal, finance, project management and more.

Apprentices gain invaluable hands-on experience, one-on-one support, and exposure across our teams and departments. This enables apprentices to develop the practical skills, knowledge and experience to accelerate their careers. Our apprenticeships range from A-level equivalent to university degree level.

“I have had one-to-one support, not just from my team, but throughout the company, which has always pushed me to progress through each stage of my apprenticeship. For anyone considering this route, I would wholly recommend.” - Amy Holloway, Legal Apprentice
