Guide to apprenticeships

Benefits of joining us

You may be surprised to find that local government has an enormous range of jobs, endless opportunities for development and that working for a council provides a great starting point for your future career, wherever it may take you.

Councils are at the heart of the places we live, work, learn, shop, socialise and exercise. The responsibility for helping and protecting people, shaping and maintaining the environment and supporting local businesses and jobs in an area, is a fundamental part of the role of councils.

We offer a wide range of services to the community of Poole. From working on our fantastic green spaces and beaches to office administration and customer service roles, as a Borough of Poole apprentice you will earn a competitive apprentice wage whilst you learn and gain practical experience …what better way to kick start your career?

  • can offer a diverse range of job and career options
