Why You'll Love Cisco

People everywhere use the internet everyday without even thinking about it. Cisco connects you to the internet so you can keep in contact with friends, watch your favorite TV shows, research information, or apply for jobs! Cisco powers the technology that connects you to the world.

Last year 1 million years of video traffic crossed the internet every month and there are now more mobile devices; like smart phones, laptops, tablets, even watches; than every human being on the planet! The internet is the future of everything. 

Our employees' creative ideas impact everything imaginable - from entertainment, retail, healthcare, and education, to smart cities, smart cars, and connecting the unconnected to make the world a better place. As a Cisco Apprentice you'll get to be part of a team that cares about its customers, enjoys having fun, and you'll take part in changing the lives of those in our local communities. Come prepared to be inspired.

*	You'll design, test, and deploy our technology and understand the engineering behind it in order to break and fix it
*	You'll analyse and unpick what our data means to inform what and how we do our work
