Looking to kick-start your career in local government? East Suffolk Council has an established and successful apprenticeship scheme, which has seen over 80% of its apprentices stay on beyond their apprenticeships to develop promising careers with the Council. 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!
A unique opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic individual to join our Development Management team. This apprenticeship opportunity could be your ideal first step on the career ladder in the Planning or Building Control field.

Excellent numeracy, ICT and written skills will be essential to this role, as well as developing a high standard of accuracy and attention to detail.
You will have a minimum of 4 GCSEs at grade C or above (or equivalent) with good communication and IT skills and high standards of numeracy and accuracy. No experience is necessary as full training will be provided.
So, what can we offer you in return?
- A fully funded and supported Level 3 Business Administration qualification
- Generous annual leave entitlements and high street discount scheme
- Valuable work based skills from day one
- The opportunity to meet and work alongside other apprentices in the organisation
- Multiple training courses and development opportunities to add to your CV
