Looking for a first job, or a new career? Want to make a difference in Hammersmith & Fulham? Are you interested in earning and learning?

There are a wealth of inspiring employment opportunities at Hammersmith & Fulham Council and our local businesses, and we want to tell you all about them through a series of virtual events being staged to mark National Apprenticeship Week.

Every day from Monday 8 February to Sunday 14 February you can explore how an apprenticeship could be the first step to gaining new skills and kickstarting your career.

You can follow the journeys of apprentices who have already made the first step and are successfully undertaking an apprenticeship:

Our events will provide opportunities for you to ask any burning questions you may have and discover how to apply for an apprenticeship.

If you are a local employer, we are running an event on the benefits of apprenticeships and how you can get support in offering apprenticeship opportunities.

Come along and meet our managers, our apprentices, local employers and HR specialists and hear about personal experiences and how we can support you.

We believe that apprenticeships are a great way to unlock the potential of people of all ages and provide a route in to a successful and fulfilling career.
