Your Chance to Shine

Here at Cisco, we have 4 stages to our apprentice application process:

1. Apply online at and upload your CV, which should include any educational qualifications and extracurricular activities that make you stand out. The roles will be advertised on 4th November 2019.

2. If you meet our minimum criteria, you will be invited to meet us onsite for a Cisco Apprentice Open Evening. You’ll learn more about the program, hear from QA about the degree you will be enrolled on, and get to meet with other apprentices and the hiring team. Parents are welcome to attend.

3. If you attend the Open Evening, you will be invited to complete an online gamification stage, which you can take from your mobile.

4. If you have been successful, you will be invited to an Assessment Centre where you will spend the day with us going through a series of activities – for example:

– Presentation – Role Play exercise – Group Activity & Hiring Manager Interview.

We will provide all applicants invited to the Assessment Centre with material to help them to prepare for that stage, in advance.
