In February 2022 Aberdeen City Council became a Young Person's Guarantee employer, which highlights our commitment to supporting young people in the work place. Find out more about the Young Person's Guarantee.
We are committed to increasing the opportunities for young people by providing a Modern Apprenticeship programme and building our workforce of the future. These allow you to learn as you earn by gaining skills, experience and knowledge as well as a formal qualification.
Funding for training is available for applicants aged 16-24 (depending on the framework) and for disabled and care-experienced applicants aged 20-29. You must meet one of these criteria in order to apply.
We recruit Modern Apprentices in business administration, customer service, early years childcare, housing and social care. We also have Trade Modern Apprenticeships such as joiners, painters, blacksmiths, electricians and plumbers.
If you are interested in a Modern Apprenticeship, then look out for any opportunities on our current vacancies page. Or follow our Facebook Jobs page to get all the latest information about our jobs and opportunities.
We have a number of guaranteed interview schemes available to applicants who meet the minimum criteria for our roles.
We have been awarded Investors in Young People Gold Accreditation, recognising our commitment to our young people. We are committed to attracting, developing and retaining young people and encouraging them to be the best they can be.
