Adding to its contribution to local employment, Woodley Town Council is now looking to recruit an Apprentice Administrative Assistant to be based at The Oakwood Centre.
The Council, through the apprenticeship scheme, will provide hands on training to help the successful candidate develop skills and knowledge, while also earning a wage and completing a Level 2 NVQ in Business Administration.
The successful candidate will assist in running the busy Council office, as well as providing administrative support across the Council, gaining skills and knowledge in areas such as finance, marketing, venue assistance and customer service. Working in the Council’s small office team, the successful candidate will learn about the services provided by the Council, have ownership of specific tasks and also have the potential for a full-time role at the end of the apprenticeship, providing the opportunity to further develop the role.
“Woodley Town Council is very proud of its contribution to local employment and its alliance with local young people. The successful apprentice will benefit from working for a committed and dedicated employer, providing training, excellent working conditions and opportunities to develop,” comments Council Leader Keith Baker.
To apply for the apprenticeship, candidates need to be aged 16 or above, not be in full time education, be eligible to work in England and willing to sign up to the Apprentice scheme for 12 months.
