What you need

Academic Requirements

You will need to have obtained or studying towards at least 260 UCAS points (pre 2017 A level, or equivalent, results) or at least 104 UCAS points (2018 A level, or equivalent, results). You will need to be able to join us in September 2021. You must have achieved at least a grade 4 (C) in English language and at least a grade 5 (B) in Maths in your GCSEs.

Our requirements vary for a few specialist roles and therefore before you apply we recommend that you review the specific academic requirements on the vacancy job description.

Please note that our BrightStart Apprenticeship is an alternative route to university so if you have already obtained an undergraduate degree (or higher) qualification, please apply for one of our graduate opportunities instead.

    Application Deadline

    Closing deadlines: Please be aware, if a particular opportunity becomes oversubscribed, we will close it for applications before the stated deadline. We recommend you get your application in as early as possible.

    BrightStarts (excluding Belfast): We close our vacancies on a rolling basis as roles are filled. We encourage you to submit your full application as soon as possible.
