Apprenticeships in the council

An apprenticeship at Newham Council offers Newham residents the opportunity to gain new skills and qualifications while working.

Apprentices earn while they learn during the two year programme and receive support to help them build their confidence and launch a successful career.

We have a number of vacancies in:
  • Business administration
  • Community Sports and Leisure

The roles will be on a two-year fixed term contract paying the London Living Wage.
As an apprentice you will receive off the job training once a week to work towards either a level 2 or 3 qualification related to your job role. You will also receive practical experience and work alongside experienced professionals who will help shape your professional development.
