Thurrock Council has opened applications for a range of apprenticeships across its services.
Cllr Deborah Huelin, Cabinet member for central services, said: "Through to Sunday 1 November, people will be able to explore the new apprenticeships we have available within the council and submit an online application.
"Whether it’s in business administration, project management or a bespoke offer from one of our services, apprenticeships are a great way to 'earn while you learn', providing on-the-job-training whilst studying for a nationally-recognised qualification."
Cllr Andrew Jefferies, Cabinet member for education, said: "It's important to remember that apprenticeships aren't just for young people, or those leaving college or sixth form.
"The new skills, knowledge and insight gained through an apprenticeship are a great way to learn something new and expand your horizons. Apprenticeships offer a fantastic opportunity for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds and can lead to a rewarding and fulfilling career."
Shortlisted applicants will be invited to attend a virtual information session on Thursday 5 November to find out details about the roles available and when interviews will be taking place.
