IT Field Technician Placement Programme - No Experience Required.

Are you looking to benefit from a new career in IT? Skills shortages in the IT sector is driving the need for qualified, entry-level career seekers and career changers.

We have a long-standing relationship with a large national based IT contracting company who have an ongoing need for IT technicians to help them manage and facilitate their IT contracts across the UK. They work with many large organisations which include Virgin Media, RICOH, Computacentre, Fortinet and Fujitsu to name a few.

Graduates from this programme will begin contract work with our IT contracting partner working as an IT Field Technician with many of these roles then evolving into permanent positions with their clients.

Companies and organisations have a real need for entry-level IT staff that can really hit the ground running with little additional training needed. This is one of the main reasons why our IT Contracting partner prefers our candidates for its clients.

The best part is you do not need any prior experience in IT as we will provide you with the fully accredited training, required by our IT contracting partner.

This role requires that you can drive and therefore candidates must hold a full UK drivers’ licence prior to completing the training component of the programme.

Training for the programme is completed online and has an estimated completion time of 8-12 weeks if you can study at least 5 hours per week. The training element is self funded but can be spread over 10 monthly instalments. During this study period we provide full tutor support and mentoring with 1-2-1 access with a tutor if required. Students that complete the training programme are guaranteed attendance at a 5-day workshop with our IT contract partner. The aim of this is so they can assess your practical IT skills and suitability to work with them. We have a current success rate of 95% of our candidates being offered a contract after they complete this workshop.

Whether you are working full time, part time or are unemployed, this package has the flexibility to be completed at a pace that suits you and can be completed in a few weeks or a few months.

Step 1 - Accredited Online Training

The first step is completing three industry internationally recognised courses from CompTIA. CompTIA qualifications are the industry standard for people looking to build careers working in IT. The training is delivered directly online by CompTIA which ensures material is both current and up to date. Training is delivered online through multimedia rich video tutorials, practice labs, presentations, and quizzes. You will be assigned an expert tutor and a career support mentor to help you throughout your training.

This programme does not require you to pass the official CompTIA exams. However, our IT contracting partner does require us submit confirmation that you have achieved their own minimum standard. Therefore, you will be expected to pass an online assessment for each course studied to confirm you are ready to attend the workshop.

Step 2 - 5 Day Workshop

The 5-day workshop is run by our IT contracting partner. This is your chance to demonstrate to our partner that you can put theory into practice and that you would be a suitable candidate to work for them and their clients. At the end of the 5-day workshop you will told if you have been successful and then offered a contract by them. At present 95% of our candidates who complete the 5-day workshop are then offered a contract. Once you have completed the 5-day workshop we will re-imburse up to £180 towards the costs for accommodation and travel you may have incurred (subject to terms and conditions).

Step 3 - Working in IT

You will now begin working with our partner on your first contract. However, if for any reason you failed to pass the 5-day workshop or decided you did not wish to accept our IT contractors offer we will continue to collaborate with you through our own internal recruitment team to help you find a suitable IT position.
