Meet some of the apprentices who work for Ipswich Borough Council:
"I was at university for about 4 months and I didn’t feel like I was achieving my full potential even though I was doing something that I was passionate about. So, I left university and carried on working in my normal job. I wanted a new qualification, one where I could use it anywhere and really expand my horizons. Then I saw a position online and I went for it."
"I want to make a career out of facing new and interesting challenges with a friendly and hardworking team. It also gives me an insight into how my town is run which I find is very interesting."
"I applied for this apprenticeship because I wanted to gain some experience working in a customer-based environment where I would be facing people on a daily basis. After college, I was unsure which course I wanted to study at university, therefore as an alternative I chose to do an apprenticeship."
"After dropping out of University in 2018, I’d already found my way into a Planning Admin job at a neighbouring Council. Despite enjoying thoroughly what I was doing, I knew that I wanted to explore this new found passion more deeply and the opportunity at Ipswich Borough Council to become an Apprentice Planning Technician seemed to the perfect next step to take in order to further my career."
