Why consider an apprenticeship?
'As an apprentice at SCC you are a valued member of staff and we want to make your apprenticeship a positive experience. All of our apprentices will be allocated a buddy to support them in their first few months and help you settle in. The Young employee network on Jive is a good place to meet other apprentices and share ideas. You will be involved with organising National Apprenticeship Week and developing activities across the Council. We aim to offer a holistic approach for our apprentices including money management, hints and tips on office etiquette and much more. Our previous apprentices are always keen to support and provide advice on making the most of your apprenticeship'

Development in every role
'We want to help you thrive in your new career at Surrey County Council. To achieve this, you will receive information and guidance during your first month from your manager, peers, nominated buddy and the HR and IT teams. Our leadership team host monthly new joiner welcome sessions with an opportunity to ask the questions that are important to you, alongside our online new joiner community where you can network and seek support. You will complete role specific and organisation wide mandatory training during your early weeks and be encouraged to identify and pursue development opportunities to continue your career progression'
