Gloucester City Council has announced seven new apprenticeship placements for this year, giving the chance for young people in the city and beyond the opportunity to earn as they learn at the council. The deadline for application is August 7th 2016.


Apprenticeships are available in several areas including the Tourist Information Centre, the Guildhall and Blackfriars Priory, and Customer Services. All placements will have both office-based and hands-on tasks, from event booking at the Guildhall to tree planting with the Neighbourhood Services team. There will also be opportunities to work on the Kings Quarter and new bus station project with the Regeneration & Economic Development team.


Apprentices will work towards work-based learning qualifications in business and administration or customer services.


Cllr Dave Norman, cabinet member for performance and resources, Gloucester City Council said: “These opportunities may be particularly attractive to individuals who might not know what to do next after the summer break.  The city council is pleased to be able to offer seven apprenticeship places to support local people, and I invite anyone to apply.”


Apprenticeships are an ideal blend of work and study helping young people to develop confidence, skills and abilities, and gaining a nationally recognised qualification at the same time.


Qualified apprentices are highly employable as they have the advantage of demonstrating high levels of commitment, motivation, transferable skills and experience – all of which are very attractive to potential employers.
