    EPCC is offering the opportunity to join our team for a two-year System Administration apprenticeship.

    EPCC is the UK’s leading centre for Supercomputing and Data Science service provision. We host and manage a unique collection of leading-edge systems such as the UK’s national supercomputing service (ARCHER2) and the Edinburgh International Data Facility (EIDF) and have been selected to host the UK’s first Exascale computer. We provide researchers and industry with a range of services including high performance computing, AI-capable GPU and Cerebras wafer-scale clusters and highly secure data storage and analysis capability for trusted research environments.

    Our apprentices join the small and friendly Systems team within EPCC that provides infrastructure deployment and support, system administration, cybersecurity and operations functions for the systems hosted at the University of Edinburgh’s Advanced Computing Facility (ACF), a secure state-of-the-art facility located at the Bush Estate on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

    EPCC has a long and successful history of providing apprenticeships and is committed to providing training, development and coaching to enable apprentices to succeed in their studies and early careers.

    Apprenticeships are full time (35 hours per week), including up to one day per week study allowance if undertaken by those with two years or less remaining in a degree or vocational qualification in the fields of Computing and IT. They are based at the ACF and the Bayes Centre in the University of Edinburgh’s central campus.
