Join us in Somerset where our exciting new Somerset Local Government Graduate Scheme (SLGGS) will give you the opportunity to expand your horizons working for five different councils in rotation across the county.

You will have the chance to utilise your degree and transform your education into valuable workplace skills putting you in a great position to take the next step in your career with confidence.

We are looking for:

A minimum of 2:2 degree in any subject but preferably something that is relevant to a career in the public sector. This could include a wide range of degrees from: Planning, Geography or Business to Graphic Design, Communications or Journalism

  • enthusiasm and excitement about starting your career
  • a positive disposition
  • an interest in local government and an understanding about what we are trying to achieve

You will be based at the offices of each council (depending on your rotation). Most councils operate agile working but working practices will be confirmed at the start of each rotation. You will need to travel between offices so transport is essential.
