Job Category: Technology
Job Description:

J.P. Morgan employs more than 200,000 people globally and the firm has assets of $2.3 trillion.  We work together across our businesses and around the globe to meet the complex financial needs of corporations, governments, private firms, financial institutions, non-profit organizations and individuals.


Since our inception some 200 years ago, we've evolved to offer the whole spectrum of global banking and financial services — and in many cases, helped to define them. It is the combination of character, product strength and intellectual capital that sets us apart as an industry leader. We invented the concept of relationship banking back in the nineteenth century, and we are still doing first-class business in a first-class way today.

So what does that mean for you? In short, it means huge opportunity. We offer an environment of support, opportunity and personal investment where you're given the freedom to develop your career.


What to expect

Established more that 15 years ago, the Glasgow Technology Centre is one of two Technology hubs for the firm, the other being located in Delaware. It is a key location in our global franchise with over 1500 Technologists developing and supporting global systems using cutting edge technologies. As an Application Developer on the Modern Apprentice Programme you will be part of this team.

A tailored programme

If successful you will attend a comprehensive induction programme designed to familiarise you with the firm, our products, services and culture.  A dedicated training curriculum will run throughout the programme alongside networking events, sporting activities and philanthropic initiatives. These formal elements will be enhanced by continued ‘on the job’ training activities developed for each individual by their line manager.


Industry-recognised qualifications

Modern Apprentices will work towards a Graduate Level Apprentice Honours Degree in a relevant computer science or software engineering subject. This training will be a mixture of day release and on-site portfolio completion. The programme will run over the course of 47 months.


We recognise that our people are our greatest asset and our competitive advantage, and actively support the study of further qualifications following the programme’s completion, according to the needs of their role and the desires of the individual. Our training partner will facilitate and monitor the apprentices’ progress throughout the programme.


Personal and professional development

Using our performance management tool, apprentices are encouraged to be proactive and invest in their own development, seeking out and taking advantage of the extensive range of opportunities available to them at every stage of their career, at their own pace. A comprehensive portfolio of online and virtual workshops combined with face to face sessions and professional development activities is available, covering topics such as software development, product knowledge, personal development and presentation skills. This is supplemented by an extensive suite of online programmes, business learning sessions and ‘bite-sized’ training modules.



Apprentices will be fully supported by their direct managers and provided pastoral care. In addition to this, each apprentice will be assigned a technical buddy from the previous intake, who can:

• Increase knowledge of how to navigate our organisation

• Relay personal insights and provide guidance and support to enhance development

• Act as a sounding board and provide different perspectives and advice

• Positively address any issues and encourage/build confidence in others

• Provide opportunities to practice new skills and share ideas

• Introduce and support networking within the business



Diversity isn't just a buzzword, it’s an essential part of the strength of our company. We expect our staff to be well rounded therefore we don't only employ people who have studied computer science or software engineering. Our people come from many different backgrounds — academically, ethnically and otherwise — and the different skills they bring are absolutely integral to our success.


If you have completed, or are completing your Scottish Highers* this year and want to start your career straight away, gaining invaluable industry experience whilst obtaining recognised qualifications, then the J.P. Morgan Glasgow Modern Apprenticeship Application Developer Programme could be the perfect opportunity for you.


Our aim is to attract smart and talented Scottish Higher* students to join one of our teams in Glasgow and to develop them to be a future leader. These specialist apprenticeship roles will follow a structured 47-month programme developing personal and professional skills within the firm.

You must be eligible to work in the U.K. to participate on our apprenticeship scheme.


Academically we require ABBC or equivalent (BBBB), including Mathematics or Computer Science or Physics, at Scottish Higher (or equivalent), plus National 5 English.
Put simply, we're looking for the best people to join our team of some of the finest minds in business.


You must be eligible to work in the U.K. to participate on our apprenticeship programme.
