£28,322 - £30,257 per annum (including London Weighting)
20-month Fixed Term Contract

We are offering a rare opportunity to gain a Level 3 Business Administration qualification whilst helping deliver an exciting new project with Watford’s business community. Watford Borough Council is soon to launch the Watford Business Pledge, encouraging businesses to act with greater social responsibility in the areas of local supply chains, local employment, good employment practices, supporting communities and environmental sustainability.

We are seeking a new team member to help us launch and deliver the Business Pledge.

You will be working within the Council’s Economic Development team and with a range of Watford’s businesses, as well as our strategic partners, such as the Watford Chamber of Commerce and Watford Town Centre BID. You will be a self-starter, experienced in customer service or business engagement roles, and a confident communicator. You will help ensure that all businesses wanting to join the Watford Business Pledge scheme can access the resources needed to help them qualify for an award, and will guide them through how to apply and how to connect with other local business. You will sometimes attend business networking events to help colleagues promote The Pledge. You will make sure all digital content in relation to The Pledge is accurate and up to date and will administer the business application process.

Alongside this, you will be able to study towards a Level 3 Business Administration Apprenticeship through training provider Keits. 20% of your time will be ring-fenced for off-the-job learning and we will ensure that your workplan is tailored to give practical application of the learning you are undertaking, with appropriate levels of support and mentoring.

The contract duration is tailored to enable completion of the apprenticeship course.

If this sounds like the next opportunity for you, we look forward to hearing from you.

Closing Date: 9am on Tuesday 14 May 2024
