Richmondshire District Council

Earn, Learn, Succeed apprenticeship programme

An exciting new in-house apprenticeship scheme has been launched.

Richmondshire District Council is looking to take on a host of new employees who will work across various areas of the authority and benefit from the vast experience of current staff.

The ‘Earn, Learn, Succeed’ apprenticeship programme has been set up in the wake of uncertain times as a result of the coronavirus pandemic – but will offer hope and career opportunities for local people.

The council has appointed a dedicated Apprenticeship/Trainee Coordinator to recruit a cohort of enthusiastic, hard-working individuals. Working in collaboration with approved training providers the council will offer on the job training and allow successful applicants paid-time for study.

The first batch of recruitments will focus on the Resources service - including ICT, Business Administration and Human Resources – and there are plans to expand across other service areas in the future.

“This is a really exciting time for the council. We have supported apprenticeships in other businesses and taken on a select few ourselves, but this is the first time we have had a dedicated programme and an ambition to see apprentices working across all disciplines within the council,” said Corporate Director, Sian Moore.

“Apprenticeships enable people to gain skills, experience and recognised qualifications while they earn a wage. We look forward to welcoming fresh talent into the council.”

A full list of the council’s current apprenticeship opportunities and information on how to apply can be found on our apprenticeship page.

Applications close on Monday 16 November 2020 at 9am. Enquiries can be directed to apprenticeships@richmondshire.gov.uk or to Nadine Slattery, Apprenticeship/Trainee Coordinator, on 01748 901022.
