Apprenticeships with us provide you with an excellent opportunity to learn while in the workplace and gain a nationally recognised qualification at the same time.
Apprenticeship placements are usually for a temporary period of 12 to 15 months during which time you will benefit from training in your job role and develop a greater understanding of the Council and the services we offer.
Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee a permanent role at the end of the 12 months, but apprentices are encouraged to apply for any suitable vacancies that do arise during their time with us.
