What is an apprenticeship?

We are looking for people who want to bring fresh ideas and innovation to the council and who care about their community.

We think a great way to get the best talent working for us is via an apprenticeship.

An apprenticeship is a job that combines practical training with study so you'll get paid to learn. What could be better?

An apprentice will:

  • work alongside experienced staff
  • gain job-specific skills
  • earn a wage and get generous employee benefits such as holiday pay
  • be given time for study related to their role (the equivalent of one day a week)

We have apprenticeship opportunities in most of our departments, some examples include:

  • HR Support: level 3
  • HR Consultant: level 5
  • Payroll Administrator: level 3
  • Adult Care: levels 2 and 3
  • Social Work Degree and Occupational Therapy Degree
  • Teaching Assistants and Early Years Educators
  • Data Analyst
  • Business Administrator
  • Paralegal

And a wide range of others!
