Hello, we’re the Pension Protection Fund. We protect millions of people in the UK who belong to defined benefit pension schemes. Our members rely on us to look after their pensions if their employers collapse and the pension schemes cannot afford to pay what they promised.

We have a new apprenticeship opportunity to join our Software Development team on a 20 month apprenticeship programme.

Our busy Software Development team is involved with an assortment of software builds and technical projects.

Within this apprenticeship you can expect to be involved in software development across a broad range of Microsoft Technologies giving you the opportunity to learn and contribute to all phases of the software development lifecycle, as well as helping support the day-to-day operations of the department. This is an exciting time to join our Technology and Change Department as we are committed to the next phase of our IT Transformation strategy which improves our IT tools and processes across the business

Our ideal applicant will have a passion to forge a career in software development, utilising their technical skills they have cultivated in their life to-date. You will have a problem-solving approach and a curiosity to grasp multiple technical concepts quickly, ensuring a focus on the wider team and business stakeholders in everything you do.

Ideally you already have an appreciation of the main software development tools and techniques, including (but not limited to) coding and application development.

You will be completing a Level 4 Software Development programme which will consist of time away from the day job with our partnered education provider. Should you hold a higher qualification or degree in a discipline related to Computer Science/Software Development, then you may not be eligible to qualify for this apprenticeship programme.

Sound like you? Apply now.

In return for your skills, experience and commitment we’ll give you a challenging role within a business where you’ll get the support you need to develop your career.

You’ll also get an outstanding rewards package which includes a generous pension scheme, private medical insurance, health cash plan, critical illness insurance, volunteering leave, holiday trading and a discretionary bonus scheme.

We’ll also give you lots of opportunities for personal development and skills training.
