Apprenticeships

We’ve recently launched our Digital and IT Apprenticeship initiative. We have recruited several already, but still have an exciting opportunity available in our Commercial team.

 

Whilst you're learning, we can offer you a role in a diverse and supportive environment where you’ll be helping to deliver services that make a difference to people's lives.


Your age, background and previous level of experience doesn't matter - we'll be looking for motivated people from all backgrounds who want to earn while they learn and be part of our mission to make our residents' and users' days better through delivering great digital solutions.
