Lori French

IBM UK Software Developer Apprentice

Lori French –  1st Year Software Developer Degree Apprentice, IBM

Meet Lori. She joined IBM as a Technical Consultant, based in London, 11 months ago.

“My apprenticeship has provided me with countless opportunities. I regularly work with clients on their site, developing technical solutions for them such as chat bots, improving my technical skills and client relation abilities. I also study at Exeter University one day a week, for my Digital and Technical Solutions degree, learning software development and business that I apply practically to my work assignments. I have been involved with a great deal of exciting projects outside of my role as well. These include leading the IBM ambassador team in London to promote apprenticeships, attending high profile events as a YAAN leadership ambassador and starting my own technical community initiates at IBM.

I chose an apprenticeship because I am ambitious and believed the best start to my corporate career was through four years consultancy experience at a world leading technical company, as well as obtaining a technical degree from one of the best universities in the UK.”

Alex Best

1st Year Junior Management Consultant
Meet Alex, he joined IBM as a Junior Management Consultant 4 months ago:
What excites me a lot about my apprenticeship is the opportunity to meet and work with amazing people who are experts in their fields day to day. As someone aspiring towards a great career, being in the right environment where you can learn from great people and be challenged to improve as a professional is key to a successful career.
I think there are a lot of opportunities from an apprenticeship that are quite evident: real live experience in a working role, opportunities to not only work on great projects but add value to them, working with amazing people and also amazing clients.
Why I chose to become an apprentice started with understanding the best way for me to learn and goes back to the “earn as you learn” initiative that all apprenticeships are based upon. Apprenticeships are a career route that isn’t touched upon as much in schools and so after college I was on the more traditional pathway towards getting a higher education in a university. I soon realised that the style of learning university provided wasn’t bad but just wasn’t the right fit for me. That led me to pursuing an apprenticeship – a style of learning based in a real live role, with real business responsibilities and the potential to earn as you learn.”
