Our apprentice experiences

Justin - "Marketing as a section has allowed me to get involved with a real range of tasks and projects. The areas I get involved in are; business relations, Press and PR as well as statistical data.

Emily - "Working in Procurement has made me realise that there are so many hidden jobs out there. It has provided me with a great career opportunity which I am looking forward to pursing"

Anna - "The apprenticeship scheme at the council has been brilliant at providing me with all of the support I need to carry out my role. It was an excellent starting point for my career ambitions"

Hannah - "The apprenticeship scheme at Braintree District Council has been great at providing support in general and within my job role. There have been so many work opportunities which I would never have thought would be available at the Council."

Jess - "I didn't think that university was the right choice for me so an apprenticeship offered a great alternative. I am still learning and working towards a qualification, but I am also earning a salary at the same time."
