Graduates, Work Experience and Apprenticeships

Graduates, Work Experience and Apprenticeships

Northumberland County Council strives to develop a strong and sustainable workforce and consequently is always looking to develop homegrown talent.  We currently employ over 100 apprentices across all of our services.

We also operate several graduate schemes in areas including Human Resources, Information Services, Law (2-year training contracts), Finance and Surveying. 

All trainees - both graduates and apprentices,  will have access to extensive training and support throughout their role. This varies depending on the programme joined. For example; qualifications relating to your field (e.g. NVQ, professional qualification) or role specific development such as on-the-job training or a workplace mentor.

Apprenticeship led to a full time job - interview with Jordan
