At Kirklees we want to be innovative and creative in the way we work to deliver our services to our communities. We know we have challenging times ahead so we are always looking for better and smarter ways to work.

This opportunity is to work within the Transformation Team, providing support to projects that transform ‘the way that we do things around here’. This requires us to build a new relationship with communities, make best use of all available resources and collaborate much more with our partners. To be successful, all of this activity has to be underpinned by a modern, flexible and emotionally intelligent workforce.

The Kirklees Council Transformation Team are looking for a motivated individual who thrives in a creative and constantly changing environment. This role is great for someone who feels comfortable taking initiative, sharing ideas for improvement and has organisational skills. In exchange you will be working in a team that is at the forefront of corporate change within Kirklees Council; this will be an exciting, diverse role in which you will receive 1:1 support from the Transformation team and also wider support from our HR Partners. 

You will have 5 GCSEs at grade A* to C (minimum Grade 4) or equivalent - including English and Maths. 

You will be working towards a Level 4 Apprenticeship in Project Management with the training provider.

Delivery of the apprenticeship will be through a mixture of theory based input and experiential learning, which will be provided within the workplace by a team of sector expert tutors. Alongside this, apprentices will be supported through their training by a designated sector-based Training Officer who will review and track apprenticeship progress.

There is more information in the Apprentice Job Profile but if you have any further questions please contact Siobhan Finnigan on 

Successful candidates will need to meet the Apprenticeship eligibility funding criteria.
