Our aim is to lead as exemplar employers, offering opportunities to young people who are driven and want to make a difference to the people of Suffolk.

The industrial placement programme is specifically designed for UK undergraduates who are seeking to gain and develop employability skills. This consists of a 39/40 week placement within a chosen council and department.

You can expect to be paid the National Living Wage for your hours worked, and you will be eligible to take annual leave. Business travel expenses, where eligible, will be reimbursed.

Flexible working is actively encouraged throughout the councils.
