Durham County Council is recruiting apprentices across a wide range of occupations from entry to degree level, offering people the chance to earn as they learn. The scheme is the authority’s largest apprenticeship recruitment campaign to date.
Apprenticeships are open to people of all ages. Applicants can be a school leaver, someone looking to return to work after a period of absence or those looking for a complete change of career.
Roles currently available span a range of occupations including: adult care, gardener, bricklayer, catering, refuse and recycling, leisure, joinery, premises assistant, human resources, ICT, financial management and customer services. Other positions available include HGV technician, electrician, heating engineer, data analyst, project management, chartered surveying, civil engineering, procurement and solicitor, among others.
The council was awarded a place in the government’s Top 100 Apprenticeships Employers in October 2020, with the list celebrating outstanding apprenticeship employers from both the public and private sectors.
The closing date for applications for the roles is Sunday 8th May, with the positions beginning in September. Applicants can apply through the North East Jobs Portal at www.northeastjobs.org.uk/
