What our staff say
My story - from Business Administration Apprentice to Accountancy Assistant
I started here as a Business Administration Apprentice. I attended college once a week and I worked the remaining four days at the council carrying out general admin tasks such as filing, monitoring emails and answering queries. During this time I also undertook various training on things like Excel and minute taking.
What other activities have you been involved with?
I took part in one of the Council’s charity auction events and won a bid for a cricket lesson! I will now be joining the Council’s Cricket Team in the summer. I have also joined the LEO running club and run most weeks.
What development opportunities have you had since joining the council?
I’ve had lots of opportunity to develop my skills and experience with the council, which is one of the many great things about working here. I was lucky enough to go on a secondment as an MKIP Programme Manager; a partnership opportunity working across three different councils, which greatly improved my project management and business case development skills. The MKIP Programme Manager role was my launch pad for my successful appointment as Head of Policy and Governance.
