Young peopleAfter a successful recruitment drive earlier in the year, Nottingham City Council is again recruiting new apprentices to start work this summer.

Apprenticeship vacancies will be available within the council’s business administration and customer service teams as well as varied roles within trading standards, energy services, education and child and adolescent mental health.

There are also roles at Nottingham Central Library and Nottingham Tennis Centre plus opportunities for plumbing and lifeguard apprenticeships.

With the exception of entry level roles, which are reserved for 16-24 year olds, the vacancies are available for all Nottingham City residents and are open to anyone who is struggling to get into work or training, is looking for their first job or a career change and job seekers hoping to return to work after time away.

Vacancies are live now and interested applicants should apply online by Sunday 23 July. Applicants shortlisted for a role will be invited to an assessment day on Thursday 3 August.

Candidates who are not successful in securing a post will be offered help and support to get roles in the future thanks to Nottingham Jobs – a three-way partnership between the council, the DWP and Ofsted rated outstanding careers experts, Futures Advice – as well as from the National Careers Service.

Nottingham City Council is one of the city’s largest employers. An apprenticeship with the council could be the first step towards a more permanent role in the future. An apprenticeship combines on-the-job experience backed up by quality training and the chance to earn a wage.

Tofayal Abdin, an apprentice with the City Councils communications and marketing team, says: "My apprenticeship with the council has helped me to develop my skills, confidence and relationship with others whilst also earning a wage. It has given me a great sense of awareness within the work environment, as well as experience on my CV and, at the same time, it is interesting and educational."

Councillor Sam Webster, Portfolio Holder for Business, Education and Skills said: “Nottingham City Council is committed to supporting local people to find training opportunities and sustainable jobs. Following the success of our recruitment earlier in the year we’re ambitious about our aims to take on up to 50 new apprentices in total this year.

“An apprenticeship can provide a stepping-stone to a new career and we expect these current vacancies to attract large numbers of applicants. Anyone who isn’t successful in finding a place this time can find the support they need to help them with their job search and career aspirations through the Nottingham Jobs service.”

The new roles have been made possible thanks to funding from the council’s Apprenticeship Levy and are being recruited to and delivered by Futures Training (the training arm of Futures Advice, Skills and Employment).
