Hackney Council Apprenticeship Programme - Various Roles
£15,597 - £23,610 per annum (depending on the role)
Hackney is London's most diverse and dynamic borough. Stretching from the edge of the City, to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, it is an area of rapid economic growth, particularly in the tech, media, fashion and other creative industries. Hackney has more green space than any other inner London borough, some of the capital's best schools, and first class transport connections, which combined with excellent local public services and a thriving arts, cultural and retail sector, are fast making it one of London's most popular areas to live, work and visit. The challenge for Hackney is to make sure that the borough's economic growth provides benefits for everyone who lives here, and to create opportunities that will transform the lives of local people.
An apprenticeship is a full-time work-based learning programme that combines accredited study with paid work. You will gain valuable work based experience while training to gain a qualification.
Hackney Council’s apprenticeship programme is designed to create quality opportunities in the Council for Hackney residents and school leavers aged 16 to 24. All of our programmes last at least 12 months and combine work, on and off the job training, and study towards a recognised qualification in a relevant subject. As an apprentice with us, you will receive a competitive salary, holiday entitlement and a package of support. You will spend at least one day per week working towards your qualification or taking part in training and development activities.
To apply for the apprenticeship programme you must:
- Be aged 16-24
- Live in Hackney AND/OR have been educated in Hackney AND/OR be a care leaver for whom Hackney Council is your ‘corporate parent’.
We are looking for candidates with:
- passion and enthusiasm
- good organisational skills
- a demonstrable understanding of the principles of delivering a high quality service to Hackney residents
- ability to form good working relationships with others
- a commitment to undertake a qualification through a structured training programme.
We will hold screening days after the closing date, and interviews will follow this. When you apply, you will need to select your top three preferences from the following roles. Please do not attach a CV or covering letter, as these will not be considered. Please be sure to answer the supporting questions.
