We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses.

Some may think we’re “old” (30 years strong!) and only about hardware, but we’re also a software company. And a security company. A blockchain company. An AI/Machine Learning company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do – you can’t put us in a box!

Securing a full-time role can be pretty tricky. Our apprenticeship programme offers the perfect blend of education and experience — a great way to kick-start your career.

We have more than 100 apprentices at Cisco in the UK, with opportunities to find your home in either Engineering, Sales, Marketing, Customer Experience or IT, via our 3-year rotational program. You’ll also have an allocated training mentor to help you on the degree side too.

90% of our apprentices go on to secure successful permanent roles once they finish.
