The three Academy schemes offered are:

Sure Commercial Academy

New in 2016, the Commercial Academy scheme will give an insight in to our Product, Marketing and Business Sales divisions. Find out how Sure products are researched, designed and delivered to our customers, how we develop marketing campaigns for our products, services and brand as well as supporting our Business Sales Team in managing existing and new Small to Medium Business accounts.

Sure Finance Academy

The Sure Finance Academy is open to individuals who would like to work in a fast-paced commercial environment within the Finance area. In this scheme you will spend time within Financial Planning & Analysis, Business Performance & Assurance and Financial Control. We'll also give you the opportunity to study for an industry-relevant qualification during your placement.

Sure Technical Academy

The original Academy scheme has been running successfully for a number of years, and many past Academy members now work in permanent roles within Sure, proving the ideal stepping stone to a long term career in telecommunications. You'd spend time with Sure's engineering teams across our mobile, fixed and corporate business lines and in a customer support role within retail, gaining experience in both technical and commercial environments. This role would suit someone with an advanced level qualification such as GCE A Level, BTEC or NVQ, ideally in an IT-based subject. 

How long is the scheme?

The scheme is a two-year programme.
