Four new apprentices have just started their working life at Wealden District Council

“As one of the largest local employers in the District, it is important we play our part in offering career opportunities to young people,” said Councillor Roy Galley, Cabinet member with responsibility for workforce development.

“This is the fifth apprenticeship scheme we have run since 2014.The careers on offer at Wealden District Council are many and varied as we provide a wide range of public services. Many of our previous apprentices have successfully applied for full-time roles at the Council once their one-year Business Administration apprenticeship is over. We are very pleased to be once again running the course with the East Sussex College Group. They help our apprentices put what they learn at Wealden into a wider context, which also means they can better contribute to what we do.”

The new apprentices are: Sophie Gurr who is working in Legal Services, Callum Honisett who is learning about Building Control, Will Anderson who is with Waste Management and George Rimmer who is working with Revenue and Benefits.

A fifth apprentice, Jade Lyons, will join the Facilities Management and Car Parking Team in March.
