Start your IT career with Google!

As an IT apprentice at Google, you will develop the skills you need to become an IT Support Professional. Your team provides the front line user support for all of our internal tools and technologies.

You will join a team at Google and will be supported by a manager and a mentor for the duration of your 15-month apprenticeship. You will start in October 2021, rotating between training with our academic partner, which is part of the 20% off-the-job experience, and providing IT Support at Google for hands-on experience during your apprenticeship.

You will have the opportunity to work alongside a team of Googlers to solve real life problems. You will learn how to apply problem solving skills to real life challenges, pick up new technical skills such as troubleshooting multiple computing platforms, data gathering and analysis, automating repetitive tasks, remote infrastructure and fleet management, IT security and policies, and other industry practices.

We will equip you with everything you need to know to support our users. You will receive specialized training in networking, infrastructure and multi-platform system administration, and you will develop further skills through hands-on experience in communication technology (video and voice), hardware, mobile devices and project management.

Google aspires to be an organization that reflects the globally diverse audience that our search engine and tools serve. We believe that in addition to hiring the best talent, a diversity of perspectives, ideas and cultures lead to the creation of better products and services. Interacting with people in all parts of the company will give you insight into our unique enterprise and corporate culture.
