Apprentices at Rushcliffe

‘Growing our own’ is a theme that we believe is good for our apprentices – it adds real value to our organisation. We feel we have a valuable contribution to make in terms of young people achieving their potential. We have been able to help young people start their working lives by offering apprenticeships in a number of areas across the council.

In recent years we have offered apprenticeships in the following areas:

  • Business Administration
  • Finance
  • IT
  • Housing
  • Elections

We offer great training and jobs that ‘make a difference’ to the people of Rushcliffe.

We advertise all our apprenticeships on the National Apprenticeship organisation website.

Apprenticeships can take between one and two years to complete. Permanent jobs are not guaranteed at the end of the training.  However we have in the past been able to do so where suitable vacancies have existed.

All our apprenticeships include:

  • Competitive salary
  • Generous annual leave
  • Reduced Leisure Centre membership
  • Access to the Local Authority pension scheme.
