Apprenticeships at the council


At the council a wide range of apprenticeships are available, including catering, accounting, construction and business administration. We have the career to meet your aspirations.

Apprenticeships are an excellent option for all ages. An apprenticeship is a genuine job where you receive formal training to gain a recognised qualification alongside gaining technical knowledge, practical experience and wider skills you need for employment and a future career.

We are currently recruiting for apprenticeships to start in September. Find details of existing apprenticeship opportunities on Current job vacancies and apprenticeships on NorthEastJobs.
