Hertfordshire Apprenticeship Programme

What is an Apprenticeship Programme?

An apprenticeship programme is a fixed term contract which provides experience in the workplace with dedicated support and an opportunity to gain qualifications, up to a postgraduate degree, whilst receiving a salary.

Becoming an apprentice with us will give you the opportunity to;

  • Earn while you Learn;
  • Minimum starting salary of £15,000 per annum or above;
  • Work within a variety of roles across HCC in a range of services;
  • Join the Local Government Pension Scheme,
  • Gain generous holiday package
  • Gain access to our award winning Herts Rewards package.

How long is the Apprenticeship Programme?

The level and complexity of the apprenticeship determines the duration of the apprenticeship programme. For example, a Level 2 Apprenticeship in Business Administration would take approximately one year whereas a Level 4 in Engineering would take two years. The Apprenticeship programme will always be of sufficient length to ensure that workplace learning and job experience is appropriate to prepare apprentices for the role.

How to Apply

We are only able to advertise Apprenticeship vacancies or schemes as and when the business requires them.

If you would like to receive email updates every time an apprenticeship vacancy is available, please register your interest in the Hertfordshire Apprentice Programme.

To make the most of this opportunity, you need to be motivated and excited about a career with us. You will be someone who likes working within a team, a good communicator with a positive approach and committed to working flexibly to achieve what your department or team needs.

Hear from HCC Apprentices

“This apprenticeship is a brilliant way for me to take full advantage of what HCC has to offer in way of training and progression towards becoming a qualified civil engineer. I am working with a brilliant team who are taking me up the ladder by giving me real life work which has the engineering principles applied to it. From an apprenticeship you learn a lot, not just about the job but also about yourself.”
