I was struggling whether to go back to college –

Google apprenticeships

At Google, our mission is to organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.

People across the UK are using Google tools — like Search, Maps, Gmail and YouTube — in their own unique ways to make their lives better every day.

Over 4,000 people work at Google in the UK today. Join a work-and-study program at Google — gain real-world experience and get paid in the process.


At Google, we don’t just accept differences — we celebrate it, we support it, and we thrive on it for the benefit of our employees, our products, and our community. Apprentices become part of our mission to build great products for every user, and their different experiences help ensure that our products are as diverse as our users.

What is an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships contribute towards the development of digital skills by providing opportunities for work and study. They can serve as part of your journey to a meaningful career. During the program, apprentices get exposure to different areas and teams at Google, while receiving external training and developing their professional skills on the job.

Google value[s] all different types of
opinions and ideas.. and we all have the
same goal: creating the best products
for our users.
