Business Administration Apprenticeships: 10 vacancies

Apply now to join North Tyneside Council’s Apprenticeship Academy.

The work going on behind the scenes of North Tyneside Council is broad and varied, therefore many of our apprenticeship opportunities are in business administration.

This will be the fifth year we have identified more opportunities in business administration due to the success of previous apprentices who are now employed.

A business administration apprentice will carry out general office tasks such as creating documents, arranging meetings, sending emails, and handling telephone calls. Each of our admin posts is based with a different team in the council each with their own distinct function. Some will be based at the Council’s headquarters on Cobalt Business Park while others will work from different locations in the borough.

Each of our apprentices is fully supported by the team around them with a named mentor and manager. As an apprentice with North Tyneside Council, you will learn skills, gain experience and knowledge and achieve a recognised qualification.
