Apprenticeship Recruitment Drive

Calderdale Council is holding its first ever Apprenticeship Recruitment Drive, to advertise their latest apprenticeship opportunities.

This recruitment drive will be held on Thursday 11 September, allowing those interested in becoming an apprentice to meet managers and staff and discover the apprenticeships available within the Council.

Apprentices at the Shay StadiumThe event will be held at North Bridge Leisure Centre, Halifax from 4pm until 7pm. At this event all new apprentice jobs will be advertised, with information about the roles and how to apply.

Meanwhile, on Thursday 4 September, over 40 of the Council’s current apprentices came together to meet Calderdale Councillors and Senior Management, and learnt about the benefits of being an apprentice and how the apprentice scheme benefits the Council.

The opportunities for apprentices in the Council are increasing as we continue with our ‘Double 2020′ strategy, which seeks to create 4040 completed apprenticeships in the Calderdale borough by 2020 for people who require training, experience and qualifications to secure meaningful, long-term jobs.

The Council’s aim is to recruit 50 apprentices a year, and we are offering apprenticeships for anyone aged 16 to 64 years. This reflects the demographic of Calderdale, and helps residents gain experience in a work based environment, with opportunities right across the Council.

Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Business Change, Cllr Geraldine Carter, said:

“It is absolutely essential that as a Council we do all we can to tackle unemployment. By continuously working to recruit new apprentices we can help people into employment in their chosen field which will hopefully lead to permanent employment.

“Calderdale Council is also committed to paying the Living Wage to all apprentices giving them a real start to their working life with the Council.”

For more information about Calderdale apprenticeships, visitjobs.calderdale.gov.uk/apprenticeships, all vacancies will be live from 11 September to 26 September email apprenticeships@calderdale.gov.uk or call 01422 288477.

Environmental Volunteers Wanted

If you think working outdoors could be for you and you have an interest in environmental matters, Calderdale Council would like to hear from you!

The Environmental Volunteer programme runs over an 8 to 12 week period and will give you work experience on a variety of real projects throughout Calderdale, which can help to get you on the way to a paid apprenticeship or job in your chosen field.

This is a highly successful scheme that has seen over 70% of its past volunteers gain employment or pathways into higher education.

If you are aged 16-24, living in Calderdale and currently not engaged in work or education, call us or email your CV to be considered for the next programme.
