About the programme

A new cohort of graduates are ready to join Shropshire Council's Graduate Programme 2018

We're offering an exciting opportunity for university graduates to work at the heart of an innovative and progressive local authority.

Our successful applicants will be part of a stimulating programme which will allow development, test skills and ability, and provide a variety of opportunities. 

If you aspire to progress your career in the public sector, help shape public services for the future and take on new challenges, Shropshire Council is the organisation for you.

There has never been a more exciting and challenging time to work in local government, with a substantial agenda for change.  Throughout our recruitment process we have sought outstanding, innovative and talented graduates who will be able to drive our transformation projects, and help to deliver our aims, values and outcomes, which place Shropshire residents at the heart of everything we do.

Shropshire Council’s Graduate Programme is a two-year rotational programme open to graduates with a 2:1 degree or above in any subject gained in the last two years for external candidates and three years for internal candidates. Chosen applicants will be expected to tackle a challenging assessment process which will determine the successful candidates. Throughout the Shropshire Graduate Programme we will look to recruit, develop and retain talent for the future through additional activities such as training, volunteering and relevant challenges.

Successful applicants will receive a competitive salary.
