The Organisation

We have high ambitions here at Surrey Council Council – our aim is to be recognised, simply, as outstanding and we are in the midst of organisation wide transformation that will help us get there. The challenge is huge, the opportunities even greater.

We have completely re-designed and re-focused our HR&OD function, with a strong focus on modernising our organisation, culture and workforce – where individuals thrive and are able to perform at their very best. You will be encouraged to think differently, share your experience and create solutions that truly deliver change.

Working alongside the organisation, learning providers, schools, colleges and other local regional networks to expand the apprenticeship provision at the council and increase participation for improved organisational performance.

Whilst your focus will be apprenticeships, you will work with the wider business in building a pipeline of talent for all of our schemes and growing our offering around internships, work experience and traineeships.

You will develop strong collaborative relationships with service leads across the organisation and with partner organisations, providing specialist apprenticeship advice and guidance to embed these fantastic development opportunities into existing and newly designed roles.
