Application Process

When you apply to join our Tech Academy, we will initially review your CV. Don’t worry if you don’t hear from us for a few weeks at this stage, as we recruit for specific Academy intakes. We will then invite you to respond on video to a set of questions we pose for you, giving you a chance to talk about yourself and tell us what you know about us. If you reach the next stage you will be interviewed over Skype by a member of our Academy Talent Team, who, if you are successful, will then invite you to our Academy assessment day.

Step 1: Apply Online

Pop your CV into our inbox! We accept candidates (graduates or otherwise) from any degree background and only ask that you have a passion for the technology industry; we don’t expect you to know all of the ins and outs! Please note that we accept applications throughout the year.

Step 2: Video Screening

You’ll complete a short video interview; we know that these can be a little daunting, but it’s a great opportunity to showcase your personality, your research of Ten10 and interest in the Ten10 Academy. We’ll send you a video clip beforehand to help settle any nerves and offer some preparation suggestions too!

Step 3: Video Interview

A conversation with a member of the Graduate Talent Team; we will talk you through the Ten10 Technology Academy programme in depth; from why we run it, what we teach, the aims of the course, what you’ll get from it, through to opportunities at the end of the scheme. This is a great time to ask lots of questions.

Step 4: Assessment Day

A day focused on us getting to know each other and assessing your skills and capabilities. Our assessment days are a little different to the norm, as they are very much focused on you as an individual, rather than the collective group.
