Now looking for a media graduate..... contact us for further details
Newark and Sherwood District Council is offering a work experience opportunity for graduates. If you are a graduate wanting to broaden your experience and enhance your CV, we’d love to hear from you. You need to be confident and have good writing skills. This is an unpaid position but we can pay you a small expense allowance of £20 per day.
We would need you to start as soon as possible to work with us over the next four weeks. You will work from Kelham Hall or our Markets Office in Newark but you will also be spending some time meeting people in Ollerton, Southwell and Newark.
Email your CV and contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us in a few sentences why you want to take up this opportunity.
We provide around 50 student work experience placements each year and all placements are UNPAID.
Requests are from students from local schools but priority is given to students who either live or attend school in the Newark and Sherwood district. Placements have also been provided to university students, German students through the Twinning Association, and through the Ready4Work team at Nottinghamshire County Council.
In the past, placements have been offered at the Grove, Dukeries, Blidworth and Southwell Leisure Centres, sports development, growth, financial services, communications, ICT, community safety, HR, legal, council tax, asset management and Millgate Museum.
We aim to make the placement as interesting and worthwhile as possible and each participating department is expected to devise a structured work programme.
All work experience students have to satisfactorily complete a disclosure of convictions form before starting a placement. (This is a requirement for anyone who works for the authority whether permanent, temporary or voluntary).
Risk assessments are carried out for students aged 17 and under by the authority.
How to apply:
We will then make enquiries for you and send a letter of confirmation if you are successful.
