Apprentices are offered a structured training programme, which will give them the opportunity to learn and understand housing management services, and can achieve an NVQ Level 2 or 3 in housing.

The programme includes a range of in-house training, working alongside qualified Council staff, and attending college to gain a formal qualification. The apprenticeship is for a one year, which will give successful candidates an opportunity to pursue a career in housing.

Luqmaan Khan, 23, a first year housing trainee apprentice, said: “The housing apprenticeship has been a step into the real world with opportunities left and right. I have been able to work with individuals who have vast amounts of knowledge and experience in a diverse role. Getting a hands-on opportunity with a qualification and a salary is the complete package!”

Zowie Dawson, 24, credit controller, added: “I joined income services in September 2014 and completed my apprenticeship in September 2015, gaining NVQ Level 2 in housing.

“I now have successfully secured a position as a credit controller, which I love as it is within an income service based role, which allows me to develop skills in communication and negotiation.”
