Ipswich Borough Council Doubles Apprenticeship Opportunities

Ipswich Borough Council has announced 14 new apprenticeship roles across a wide range of its services – taking the total number of apprentice positions to 28.

From sport to housing and building control to parking, the apprenticeships are open to school leavers and those looking to kickstart a new career.

On top of earning your own income and gaining a recognised qualification, as an apprentice you will take part in the Council’s Apprentice Development Programme, aimed at helping you develop a range of transferable skills including time management, problem solving and decision making. Many of our apprentices go on to get jobs with the Council after their apprenticeship.

All the vacancies are now live on the Council website and close on Friday 16 July. To find out more and apply, visit www.ipswich.gov.uk/apprenticeship-vacancies.

The Council will be hosting two virtual drop in sessions on Microsoft Teams on Thursday 8 July (6pm – 7pm) and Tuesday 13 July (6pm – 7pm). These sessions will give those interested in applying more information and a chance to ask questions. To register your interest, please email apprenticeships@ipswich.gov.uk.

Councillor Martin Cook, Ipswich Borough Council’s resources portfolio holder, said: “The pandemic has had a huge impact on young people, many of whom will no doubt be worried about the future, so we’re delighted to be able to increase our apprenticeship offering and provide more young people with an opportunity to get on the jobs ladder. An apprenticeship with IBC isn’t just a placement, it’s a real job, with a contract of employment, good income and apprenticeship training. You’ll be working within a large, multi-functional business, giving you valuable experience in the workplace and greater exposure to a wide range of customers and professions – great for your CV in the future.”
