Are you looking for new and exciting challenges each day?

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an apprentice to join our Business Management Team working within Adult Community Services.

There is no age limit on being an apprentice and we offer a fully funded and supported Level 3 Business Administration qualification. Alongside this you will gain valuable work-based skills from day one, generous annual leave entitlements and high street discount scheme.

You will play a key role within the team focusing on information governance and supporting the investigation of data breaches and you will also gather information held by the council which has been requested by the public and organisations.

If this sounds like it’s for you, read on!

We are seeking an organised, motivated and enthusiastic individual with good IT skills. This is an ideal opportunity for those wanting to gain experience in the public sector and learn a variety of skills within a fast-paced forward-looking team with an exciting remit.

Our Workplace Values

Above all, we are seeking a great team member with the right values and behaviours, to ensure our workplace values are at the heart of everything we do.

Our values:

• Achieve – be the best we can be
• Support – work as one team
• Pride – take pride in and are proud of what we do
• Inspire – model the ASPIRE values
• Respect – give and earn respect
• Empower – empower, encourage and motivate people.

In addition to the tasks outlined in the job and person profile you will assist with the day to day Information Governance work within the council. This includes collating requests which have been submitted under Freedom of Information and other requests for information (like Subject Access Requests and security and police requests for information).

This organisation positively encourages the use of technology to communicate and engage, but on occasions there may be a requirement for you to travel using reasonable and suitable means available to you and agreed by the authority.
