On track for an exciting future.

Take advantage of this fast-track development opportunity and we'll give you the chance to become a local government leader of the future. We're offering highly motivated and talented graduates the chance to join one of three streams: Management, Operational Research and Highways, Transportation and Waste. These are unique and highly prized opportunities within local government.

Over a two year period you will complete a tailored range of placements across the organisation so you can develop a broad understanding of each area of the Council and gain the skills needed to become an effective senior manager. Alongside learning from experienced colleagues, you'll undertake a range of learning to develop your management and technical skills, including a project management qualification.

Ready to take on early responsibility, Management trainees will take on four six-month placements across the Council, including high profile projects. Operational Research trainees will work alongside our transformation partner on efficiency, improvement and transformation projects. If you're following the Highways, Transportation and Waste stream, you will undertake three placements within the division and work with partner organisations to gain experience of all aspects of our highways, transportation and waste work.

Committed to making a difference in the public sector, you'll bring a 2:1 degree together with strong communication and relationship building skills. For the Operational Research stream this will be in a highly numerate or statistical discipline such as engineering, science, mathematics or business. For the Highways, Transportation and Waste stream this will be in civil engineering, transportation planning or geography. Above all, you'll have the confidence, drive and ambition to deliver results within a fast-paced and complex environment.
