Within the role you will be exposed to a wide range of industry leading technologies used to support all of the Auto Trader websites.

By choosing an apprenticeship at Auto Trader you will be working on leading edge tech and will be given the support and the tools needed to develop. This will include attending masterclasses, conferences, meet-ups, boot camps, one to one coaching and mentoring! We are quite a relaxed bunch so people tend to dress down, rather than wearing formal work clothes and we are based in some pretty swish offices in the heart of Manchester.

In this role you will be monitoring our internal and external applications, servers, database’s and network. Responding to system alerts, investigate and resolve the root cause of the failure. Producing daily application downtime statistics for management. Carrying out trend analysis on old alerts, actively identify and prevent potential incidents. You will use your communications skills to communicate effectively with people in other teams about issues identified with their applications. Once fully trained you will provide on-call support.

We’re looking for people who have an absolute passion for all things tech and IT. Who have great analytical skills and love solving problems. They will need to have a logical approach and will also enjoy taking something apart and put it back together! Coupled with your technical skills, you will be a great communicator, both written and verbal and enjoys working in a team and will be considerate of others. You will love learning new skills and will be passionate about achieving phenomenal results.

We’d like to see candidates with a A Level or equivalent in Computing/IT. Exposure to or a strong interest in Linux and Cloud technologies.

The role on offer is so much more than developing your skills and gaining work experience. You will be given all the support you need and work towards achieving a level 3 Infrastructure Technician Apprenticeship. We invest heavily in our people, but also our technology. We offer a starting salary of £16,000 that will increase to £26,000 when you successfully complete your studies. On top of this we offer some pretty fantastic benefits including 25 days’ holiday, healthcare benefits and extras to suit your lifestyle.

Everyone is unique in their own way and we are looking for people from all walks of life to become part of our inclusive culture. We’re committed to making Auto Trader a diverse and inclusive environment for everyone. Diversity for us means respect for and appreciation of differences in: gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, race and ethnic origin, religion and faith, marital status, social, educational background and way of thinking. Our dedication is to ensure you get the chance to be the best that you can be, showcase your full potential and make the right choice for you.
