One Apprentice will be based in our Melton (near Woodbridge) offices and the other in our Lowestoft offices. Please indicate your preference on your application form.

One year training contract.

Apprenticeship start date: 11 September 2017.

Looking to kick-start your career in local government? Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Council’s have an established and successful apprenticeship scheme, which has seen over 70% of its apprentices stay on beyond their apprenticeships to develop promising careers with the councils.

If you are looking for an exciting opportunity where you can earn money as well as gaining experience and a recognised qualification, then look no further.

These two exciting and unique apprenticeship opportunities will involve providing administrative support for the East Suffolk Communities Team, to assist in delivering the team’s work programmes which are based around Community Development, Community Safety and Community Health.

The projects you will be involved in could include working to reduce anti social behaviour to ensure communities are safe, helping communities have a greater say in their future, and supporting initiatives to improve health and well being, including mental health, dementia and support for carers.

Your administrative duties will include assisting in the arrangement of meetings, note taking, typing documents, working with data and supporting at events.

We can offer an interesting and varied work programme, a positive team environment, and the opportunity to get involved in different tasks at different levels and to lead stand alone projects.

You should be an enthusiastic, positive individual with excellent communication skills, who is up for new challenges, curious about how things work and how you can help to make things work better.

You will have a minimum of four GCSEs at grade C or above (or equivalent) including English and mathematics, with excellent IT skills and high standards of accuracy. No experience is necessary as full training will be provided.

What can we offer you?

  • A fully funded and supported Level 2 Business Administration qualification
  • Generous annual leave entitlements
  • No expensive university tuition fees
  • Valuable work based skills from day one.
