"On completion of my apprenticeship I was really enjoying the role and the team had made me feel so welcome that I applied for a Planning and Building Technician role to further my career and stay within the council.  Due to all of the experience I had gained during my apprenticeship I was successful in obtaining a permanent role."

Lydia Brookbanks - HR Assistant

"I studied a Business Administration Level 2 diploma as part of my apprenticeship programme with an external training provider. When I successfully completed my apprenticeship, a role had been allocated for me to take up within the HR team as HR Assistant. Working as a HR assistant allows me to help members of staff and the public with recruitment and other related queries."
