Metaswitch Academy - Belfast



We are now recruiting the very brightest graduates from all disciplines for our Metaswitch Academy in Belfast.  Successful applicants will train with us and learn the skills required to kick-start a successful career in IT.

We are now accepting applications on Mindmill: 

Applications will close at 12:00pm on Monday 5 February. 


The Metaswitch Academy is an initial eight week training programme, with successful participants being offered permanent careers at Metaswitch at the end of the process.  Academy graduates will gain the skills, knowledge and experience required to work with cutting-edge communications technology deployed by carriers worldwide. 


The secret of our success is the people we recruit – and we’re looking for the best. You do not need any previous experience, but an enquiring mind and a proven aptitude for problem solving are essential, as is an outstanding academic record.

Join us and you'll find that the focus is all about you. You're recognised and treated as an individual. Your training is unique to you – tailored to your own wishes and needs – and will continue throughout your career with us. The only constant is that you will be challenged and stretched, but within a supportive environment, working with some of the brightest minds in the business.


Applicants must hold, or be predicted, at least a 2:2 in any degree discipline – experience is not required.  The selection process will include online aptitude tests, and an interview. 

More information and details of how to apply can be found on our Mindmill site: 


The Academy will take place in Central Belfast starting on 26 February 2018.
