Apprenticeships At Daisy

Your future starts here.

Get in Touch
We know that college or university isn’t for everyone. All of us work and learn in different ways which is why you’ll find people from all backgrounds at Daisy. If you’re the sort of person that wants to jump straight into work, earn a wage and learn some real skills in the process (whilst avoiding student debt), then an apprenticeship might be the right route for you – and we’d be happy to have you.

Reasons to choose an apprenticeship

You’d be forgiven for thinking that apprenticeships are only available for more vocational career paths, such as plumbers, hairdressers, electricians etc. but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Between 2019 and 2020, 719,000 people just like you participated in apprenticeships in England alone. From manufacturing to childcare, IT to warehousing, accounting to transportation. There’s quite literally something for everyone.

Every single person at Daisy knows that university is often perceived as the main educational route. We’ve all been in your shoes and faced the career choices you’re facing right now. But there’s more than one way to get to where you want to be. The truth is that the average student now racks up more than £50,000 of student debt by the time they graduate – and that’s before they’ve found a job! As an apprentice, you’ll be paid for your normal working hours as well as at least the one day a week you’ll spend doing your training or coursework.
Chances are, you’re on this page because you’re someone who gets a lot from doing, trying, experimenting, failing and then trying again. And we encourage all of that at Daisy. So, guess what? An apprenticeship is a fantastic option to get your career the best of starts. In fast-paced industries like technology where things change all the time and where you need to stay ahead of the competition, it’s vital that you’re learning information and skills that you’re actually going to need from the people that can give you exactly that.
By offering a more hands-on, practical approach to learning, where you learn your job or trade by actually doing that job, an apprenticeship arms you with all of the practical and personal skills you will need for the world of work. By working within a business, that essential, real-world experience is being gained without you realising. From communicating effectively with others, to teamwork, problem solving and leadership, you’ll be ready for whatever your future holds with skills that are applicable to any working environment.

Daisy Colleagues Upskilling via an Apprenticeship Winners

“Martin is an absolute credit to Daisy, his colleagues, and his customers. The hours and effort put in by Martin to manage his full time SYSOPS Manager role alongside studying for his CMI Level 5 Operational Manager Apprenticeship was outstanding and reflected his true commitment to his own development as well as his job role. We would not be able to run this team without the input, output and professionalism Martin brings to Technical Operations. Martin gained Chartered Manager status, as well as an overall distinction - and this is extremely well deserved. Well done Martin, your hard work and commitment are very much admired.”
“Joanna has such talent! She demonstrates real commitment to her role in network engineering, including working out of hours to complete work that cannot be carried out during the normal working day. Joanna is extremely intelligent, diligent, and is an effective communicator. She has expressed an intense interest in learning and developing new skills, and we have no doubt that whatever Joanna wishes to achieve, she will. Joanna is certainly a rising star, and we cannot wait to see her continue to grow with Daisy and realise her goals.”
