Nottingham City Council is gearing up for National Apprenticeship Week which is taking place between 3 and 9 February.

The council will be working with local companies and organisations which will be a part of the Nottingham Jobs initiative in order to raise awareness of different opportunities across Nottingham and inspire people to apply for apprenticeships.

Nottingham City Council has its own scheme for apprenticeships which pays national minimum wage and potentially provides a qualification.

The council hope to take on apprentices in numerous roles, for example:

  • Administration assistants.
  • Leisure centre attendants and swimming instructors.
  • Care and social workers.
  • Highways operatives.
  • Gardeners and park rangers.

Councillor Neghat Khan, Portfolio Holder for Early Years, Education and Employment, said: “We are committed to equality and constantly strive to have an inclusive workforce that represents the diverse citizens we serve.

We are looking for apprentices who will commit to our organisation, are able to demonstrate a great work ethic and want to develop and enhance their skills.”

The council is searching for people from a range of people from all over the city who want to learn new skills and develop through an apprenticeship.

“Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to get yourself on the career ladder and earn while you learn.”
