Leicestershire County Council is committed to Smarter Working and understands the benefits of supporting employees to manage their work and life balance, whilst meeting the needs of the service. 
Apprentices learn on the job, whilst working with and shadowing others. Therefore the post is not appropriate for remote working. Furthermore time spent on residential blocks at college make the post unsuitable for alternate working patterns such as compressed hours. However, we are supportive of flexible working and candidates who wish to discuss this should contact or to see what is possible for this role.
Please apply sending us your CV as well a supporting statement, detailing how you meet the requirements of the post. The supporting statement should be around 250 words (plus or minus 50 words) and be incorporated into your CV, to form a single document.
