The successful applicant will have the opportunity to support a variety of projects and pieces of work within the service whilst developing their own knowledge and skills along the way.

This role will provide you with the opportunity to develop new and enhance existing skills whilst learning how to undertake a range of administrative tasks effectively and efficiently. These duties will include maintaining electronic filing systems, supporting with the creation of social media posts and articles for other communication channels such as the service newsletter, contributing to the organisation of events and meetings, maintaining records of the services technology (laptops and phones) and liaising with other colleagues to collect and share information.

The successful candidate will:

  • Have a positive attitude to learning

We have a hybrid model of working where office working at County Hall, Lewes is required on Mondays and Thursdays and the remaining working days from home. A laptop and mobile phone will be provided.

This apprenticeship will provide you with practical employment experience, learning on the job, whilst undertaking a nationally recognised qualification. Observation and assessment will take place throughout the term of the apprenticeship to build upon your levels of understanding leading toward your qualification.
