Graduates given chance to shine

Graduates looking for work in Shropshire are being urged to take up opportunities to work in a range of services as part of Shropshire Council.
The local authority has launched a two-year graduate programme for people who have the potential to become the future leaders of the organisation.
Councillor Tina Woodward, Shropshire Council deputy cabinet member for transformation and organisational development, said: “This route into the workplace gives a fantastic opportunity for young people to explore their future options and gives vital experience of working in a fast-paced environment.  It’s increasingly difficult for students and graduates to get started in their chosen career, and this gives them a real chance to get a foothold in local government.
“Local Government is entering into an exciting phase in its history with a substantial change agenda and we need dedicated and outstanding individuals to develop into future leaders of the public sector.”
Opportunities are available across a range of services including economic development, organisational development, safeguarding, education, finance, public health and wellbeing, planning and policy and communications.
The programme is designed to give graduates practical experience whilst making a marked contribution on key projects of transformation.
