What’s it all about?

If you love programming, mechanics, building, electronics, inventing, model-making or any kind of tech, you’re going to love this. The Zitko Talent programme starts with a year’s training, in a paid job with a quality employer. 

Here’s what you’ll get:

  • A year’s paid employment with your host company
  • Carefully planned on-the-job training and work experience
  • Classroom and online foundation training on security technology and concepts 
  • Training on the systems your host company uses – from the manufacturers
  • Mentoring and support from the Zitko Talent team and your host

You won't be paying for your training. In fact, you’ll be earning up to £18,000 as you work and learn full-time.

What about qualifications?

Some people really enjoy studying for exams, but if that isn’t you, don’t worry. 

We’re looking for people who love solving technical problems and building or fixing things. We’re talking PCs, bikes, kitchens, programmable models, you name it! For sure, there’ll be study along the way, but if you’ve figured out how to fix something by watching You Tube videos, that’s a learning style we can work with.

Bottom line: we’ll work out if you have the aptitude for the job. If you do, there’s an amazing year ahead. 

Your future in security tech

Did we mention this is an intense course?! You’ll be squeezing several years’ experience into 12 months, as well as completing around £20,000 worth of training.

When you graduate, you’re going to be the kind of engineer any company would want to employ. Your host employer will have invested a lot in your development. They’ll be planning to employ you long-term. And as the employers in the Zitko Talent Programme are among the very best, that means an exciting future.
