Who are we looking for

We want people who are passionate about a career in local government to enrol on our schemes and join the long list of successful apprentices who have already completed our programmes. We’re not focused on your qualifications or work experience, but on whether you have the drive and commitment to do well in Westminster. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds to Westminster, because we recognise that a mix of ideas and opinions add real value to our enterprising teams.

What you can expect when you join us

Our apprenticeship programmes last for 12 months or longer, depending on the qualification you are pursuing and have lots to offer, including:

  • a competitive apprenticeship salary
  • a nationally-recognised qualification
  • valuable hands-on experience, working alongside industry experts
  • career guidance and support every step of the way

Who can apply

Everyone! Westminster apprenticeships are a great way to continue your education – but within a workplace environment. Our schemes are perfect for school or college leavers, those returning to work after a career break or those who want a change of direction. You might have some work experience, or none at all – but what you will have is plenty of enthusiasm for the incredible opportunities that we can put in front of you. 

Across all schemes, we welcome fresh talent from all walks of life – people who will flourish with us and make a great career for themselves at Westminster.

To know more about apprenticeship opportunities that are currently available you can visit the National Apprenticeship website.

Don’t just take our word for it. This is what our most recent apprentices have had to say about their experiences…
