Apprenticeship opportunities

Current apprentice Courtney Brett

The council has run a successful apprenticeship scheme for more than 13 years and applications for 2018/19 will soon be open.

We are recruiting more than 20 apprentices in partnership with Arvato, where vacancies include business administration apprenticeships and customer service apprenticeships.

Young people aged 16-18, who live in Slough, can apply, taking on two six month placements in different areas of the council.

They receive a wage while learning valuable skills on the job and studying towards a Diploma in Business Administration or Customer Service.

Councillor Shabnum Sadiq, cabinet member for education and children, said: “Our apprenticeship scheme has gone from strength to strength over the years and many of the apprentices have gone on to get a job with us after their placement.

“Not everyone wants to go to university and these placements are a great opportunity to get an insight in the working world, while also gaining a qualification.”

Vacancies for apprenticeships starting in September will open on Friday 4 May.

Applications must be submitted by 31 May and there will be an assessment centre during the week of 25 June, with the placement starting on 13 September.

Anyone interested in applying should email apprenticeships@slough.gov.uk to request a recruitment pack.
