Graduates wanting to launch their career in the public sector have just over a week left to apply for Richmond Council’s graduate development programme..

The paid scheme which was launched last year will take a small number of graduates with an interest in public service, and provide them with training to develop a management career in local government.

The substantial programme will give graduates opportunities to take on real responsibilities in three or four different placements around the authority and they will also receive individual mentoring.

Graduates on the programme will shadow senior managers and meet with local councillors to understand the political context, as well as participate in London-wide and national events. The dea

Last year four graduates joined the Council, taking on real responsibilities in areas including community safety, democratic services, public health, parks and open spaces, corporate policy, adult social care, customer services, the web team and education policy.

Steven Tanner, who joined the Richmond Council Graduate Training Programme in 2013, said: “I always knew I wanted to work in the public sector, I wanted to work in a role that would benefit the community. I looked at many graduate schemes and the Richmond one was different. It is very structured, allowing you to experience a number of different departments rather than just one. So far the first year has been interesting, challenging and enjoyable and I look forward to the next twelve months.”

The deadline for applications is 28 May 2014 at 12pm.
