Southwark Council is an exciting place to work as we transform the way we work to reflect our drive for excellence We recognise that having the right people, with the right experience and skills, in the right jobs, is at the heart of our organisation. Without this we cannot deliver. We believe that everyone in the team is a valued member and, we will give you responsibility and the opportunity to make a difference from the beginning.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for 2 apprentices:
- 1 to join the Schools' HR Team
- 1 to join the Transaction HR Team
We want to hear from people with potential and so even if you are not the finished article, don't let that stop you from applying, as we will work with you to develop and grow These are some of the things we look for. We would like to hear from you if you have the ability to:
- Communicate well
- Build relationships
- Be proactive and demonstrate initiative
- Pay attention to detail
- Demonstrate confidentiality in the way you work
What will I be doing?
As an apprentice, you will be on a 2 year development programme, which is designed to kick-start your successful career in HR. A combination of practical, on the job experience and theory will combine to give you an overview of best professional practice, resourcing and talent planning, performance management and employment law. We understand that everyone's career could be different, as every apprentice goes through their own unique journey.
Where can this career take me?
You'll gain a CIPD Level 3 - 5 in Applied Human Resources and become a CIPD associate member. This foundation can lead to a role in employee relations, recruitment, organisational development, learning and development or diversity and inclusion. This depends on which areas you have developed interests in on the scheme.
What training and support will I get?
Whilst on the scheme, we'll support your technical development through a wide range of on-the-job practical experiences and placements. We will also support your professional development through a combination of classroom-led training courses, online training courses, mentoring opportunities and structured networking opportunities. You will receive one-to-one support throughout the programme from your scheme sponsor and your Line Manager. You'll also be connected to a 'buddy' who will be a more experienced apprentice from the scheme.
This is a great opportunity to work and learn from a professional and diverse HR team. If you are excited by inspiring and influencing the future of Southwark then this is the career path for you.
