Tees Business Digital Media Pack

Dozens of apprentices are being hired by Stockton Council.

In total there are 38 positions available, ranging from ICT technicians and business administrators to cooks and care workers.

Successful applicants will take up their posts in September 2021.

The apprenticeship vacancies, which opened on Friday, include roles in adult care, library assistant, ICT, business admin, finance and food.

All of the apprentices will be paid at or above the national minimum wage, which is higher than the standard rate of pay for apprenticeships.

Councillor Bob Cook, leader of Stockton Council, said: “I started out as an apprentice myself many years ago – it gave absolutely vital on the job experience and was a big help as I stepped into the world of work.

“We’ve got a great track record of hiring apprentices from a wide range of backgrounds with differing experiences and it’ll be brilliant to get some more on board.

“Back in 2019 we had nearly 1000 applications for our apprenticeship positions and they’re sure to be very popular again.”
