Council to recruit new apprentices

Hull City Council has a number of new apprenticeship opportunities.

Each year the Council takes on a significant number of apprentices and recognises that employing them helps them to grow their own talent by developing a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce.

Apprenticeships in the public sector can lead to very different careers including youth work, teaching, legal and civic services and construction to name a few.

Hull Training and Adult Education will be holding an open event on Monday 23 October at their offices in the BBC Building, Queens Gardens, Hull for anyone who is interesting in finding out more. The event will take place 11am – 2pm. They are now recruiting for a number of vacancies with varied roles and opportunities to join several teams, including, the Youth Justice Service; Street Scene; Legal, Customer Service Centres and Civic services. Those apprentices employed by the Council receive training through the Council-run training provider Hull Training and Adult Education.

Councillor Phil Webster, Portfolio Holder for Learning, Skills and Safeguarding Children, said: “The apprenticeship programme at the Council is a real success story and has helped hundreds of people gain full-time employment so far. We have a long history in recruiting apprentices, supporting local people to build successful career in the public sector.

“Investment in apprentices is key to equipping our city with the right skill-sets and ensuring we have a large talent pool to deliver the services the people of Hull need.”
