Council looks for new apprentice

Torridge District Council is opening up its fourth apprenticeship, this time in the revenues and benefits team.

TORRIDGE District Council is on the lookout for its fourth apprentice to join the team in the Revenues and Benefits department.

The council will take on one person to gain valuable work experience in the team and study for an NVQ in customer service during the 12-month-contract.

Council leader Barry Parsons said: “As a council Torridge values its young people highly.

“They are our future and it’s vital we give them every opportunity to excel and to succeed.

“We see apprenticeships as a great way of employing and training someone who can then go on to bigger and better things, whether ultimately it be with Torridge or somewhere else.”

Georgina Beardsley is currently working as an apprentice with the council in the corporate services team, and said it has been a great opportunity.
