Tom Cunningham, Councillor responsible for Apprenticeships at Braintree District Council, said: “We at Braintree District Council have enthusiastic apprentices who help us deliver services and help shape our organisation for the better and I’m looking forward to welcoming eight more in September.”

Cunningham also pointed out that the council will be taking on eight new apprentices to work in their offices in the coming months, adding to the 50 they have previously employed

“We want to ensure that their time with us is a very positive and beneficial experience, both for them and for us as an employer.

“Like our businesses and organisations in the district, we’re all committed to giving young people the skills they need to get great jobs in our local area.”
