Tom | Maintenance and Contracts

I am doing an apprenticeship with Ipswich borough council to become an electrician. At the end of the apprenticeship I will be a fully qualified electrician with a life-long career. I found out about the opportunity from an online advert, the application process was very easy to follow, I was selected for an interview and was lucky enough to get offered the job.

Since starting, I have had a great time learning the trade with great mentors. I've learnt many additional skills seperate from the trade itself, such as time management and important people skills from working with both customers and colleagues. Throughout my year-and-a-half working for IBC I have been well supported with practical skills whilst at work plus help with the theory that I learn at college.

I would recommend an apprenticeship with Ipswich Borough Council to anybody who feels an apprenticeship is the path they want to take.

Lisa | Business Support

I was made redundant from my previous role I was looking for a job that was secure with a low risk of redundancy. The range of job roles within Ipswich Borough Council also really appealed to me, and I think that my apprenticeship will be a good starting block from which I can explore a variety of career options. Serving my community was also a big reason to join IBC as I like helping people and making a difference to their lives.

Stephen | Grounds Maintenance 

I have chosen an apprenticeship with IBC as I have lived in Ipswich all of my life, given me that familiarity in the environment that makes me more confident to apply, and for their variety of job roles that caught my eye and help spread my opinions in what role I wanted to go for.
