The graduate programme

The Zitko Talent graduate programme provides fast-track entry to security tech. It’s a partnership between employers, manufacturers, industry bodies and accredited security tech training companies. 

Lasting for 12 months, the programme will add to your existing knowledge and skills; giving you the technical training, product certifications and awareness needed to get started. 

Just to be clear, everything is funded by the industry. You won’t pay anything for your training. And you’ll be a salaried employee from day one. 

Here are the key elements:

  • 12-months’ paid employment with your host company, providing structured experience and plenty of hands-on work
  • A basic salary while training of £20-£30k (often plus benefits)
  • 125 hours’ accredited security technical training (classroom and distance)
  • Around 160 hours of manufacturer-provided training on the systems your host company uses
  • Industry-recognised certification in up to six security systems
  • One-to-one mentoring and support from your host and from the Zitko team

Your host employer will be investing significantly in your development. They’ll be planning to employ you long-term. The career and earnings potential in security tech are immense and your skills will be in demand worldwide.

On completing the 12-month programme your salary is likely to rise straightaway to £30-£45K, based on current market rates.

Who is this programme for?

Primarily it’s for Engineering, Technology and Computing Graduates who would welcome the opportunity to become multi-skilled. And are interested in more applied engineering. You’ll need a real appetite for creative, technical problem-solving and technology application. A strong travel bug and an interest in making the world a safer place wouldn’t go amiss either. 

Your future in security tech

Talented engineers can do very well very quickly in the security tech field. Manufacturers are actively involved in certifying engineers to use their products, so training and cross-skilling are routine elements of the job.

Security tech is an industry in which talented engineers can shine. Prove yourself and there are great opportunity to progress into specialist technical or project management roles. If leadership appeals to you, the career path is there too.
