Business Administrator Apprentice

Padiham, United Kingdom

We are Rapid IT, a Lancashire based government approved, IT asset management business specialising in secure and reliable recycling solutions from audit and collection to hardware disposal and data destruction.  We operate from one of the most advanced facilities for IT lifecycle and asset management in the UK.  We are considered a safe pair of hands for handling and processing our customer’s data bearing assets.  Our customer relationships; repeat business; certifications and awards are all testimony to this. 

We are committed to doing our bit in saving the environment by helping to reverse and halt climate change.  This is something we are passionate about and we are keen to promote awareness and encourage and help our customers to join the band wagon.  We are currently involved with various initiatives and partnerships to help us achieve our goal and have been awarded various ‘Green’ awards over the years. 

As a team we’re easy going and we take great pride in our work.  From brand and marketing to product/service development and reducing climate impact.  Purpose beyond Profit is embedded within our work ethos.  

We celebrate our milestones and enjoy quarterly get-togethers.  Our culture is about pulling together, helping one another, about putting forward good ideas and feeling part of something bigger than yourself. 

Do you feel your persona would you be a good business fit with Rapid IT? 

Diversity and Inclusion

We are an equal opportunities employer.  We are looking for shining stars and diamonds in the rough, and we’re committed to creating a diverse environment.  All qualified applicants will be considered regardless of race, colour, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, genetics, national origin, disability, age or any other grounds. 
If there are any adjustments you need to help you bring your best self to an interview with us, please let us know. 

Personal Attributes

We are more interested in you, as a person, and your flair and creativity as opposed to a piece of paper you may have in your possession confirming your qualifications as these are not necessary to enter the apprenticeship scheme. That said, we are wanting to hear from people who are self-motivated and good team players and who are: 

Able to operate in a challenging and fast paced environment and able to communicate well 


Able to demonstrate drive and a passion for learning 


We are looking for shining stars and diamonds in the rough with a passion to discover, invent, simplify and build. 


It goes without saying, that the usual stuff you normally read on the people specification of a job description would be a consideration; punctual; good team worker; proactive; blah blah blah but we can discuss all that at interview! 

Why don’t you wow us with your creative flair and submit your application as you see fit – anything goes!  Give yourself the best chance, make yourself stand out from the rest and surprise us! 

This is a brand-new position we have created given the standing and level of business we are currently at.  It’s an unmissable opportunity for a dynamic free spirit to cease the opportunity and carve out their own fit within our business.

We are  planning and  preparing to move on from the crossroads we are currently at and would love to take you with us on our next three year, and beyond, journey.  Once you’ve completed your bespoke application, please forward to:
