Vacancy Description

Are you a junior tech professional with technical or digital training in computer science/lT or related field and a passion for problem solving?

Digital Apprenticeship Program – Developing Digital Skills through Apprenticeships

This is a program implemented by EldoHub in partnership with Thunderbird School of Global Management (Arizona State University) supported by the UK-Kenya Tech Hub that places junior tech professionals in host businesses to work on specific digital projects for three months while receiving 1:1 mentorship from experienced professionals in the tech industry.

The Digital Apprenticeship Programme focuses on providing practical experience to junior technology professionals though three-month work placements with:

  • Digitally enabled tech start-ups/scale-ups
  • Non-tech/traditional business models, SMEs that would benefit from becoming digitally enabled

The Digital Apprenticeship Programme aims to provide practical work experience to junior technology professionals as well as expose non-tech businesses to the benefits of digital enablement.

Many internship/apprenticeship programmes are unsuccessful as businesses do not have the time and capacity to mentor/develop the junior interns/apprentice. This often leads to a poor experience for the business and the intern/apprentice as neither derive any value from the experience, with the intern/apprentice ending up doing menial tasks.

In this program, the junior technical professionals is be matched to either a digitally enabled start-up/scale up or a non-tech traditional business to deliver a specific agreed project which could include a website, business intelligence, a chatbot etc. An additional component of advisory/mentorship will be added to ensure the junior technical developers get the support they require.
