Applications are now being taken for new apprenticeships at Lancaster City Council.

The city council is extending its successful apprenticeship scheme, which has been running since 2011.

Six new opportunities are available including within human resources, IT, planning, housing and with its dog wardens.

All the apprenticeships will lead to a permanent position on successful completion of the apprenticeship.

Coun Eileen Blamire, leader of Lancaster City Council, “Over the last few years we’ve had great success in recruiting apprentices, many of whom have gone on to secure permanent jobs with the city council.

“We’re now keen to extend the scheme and offer the opportunity to even more young people.”

Apprenticeships provide on the job learning and development where you will have the opportunity to carry out a full time working role whilst achieving a nationally recognised qualification.For more information on the opportunities that are available, and to apply, visit www.lancaster.gov.uk/jobs.
