Customer and Administration Assistant (Summer Placement)
About the summer placement scheme:
A summer placement at Chelmsford City Council is a great way to see how local government works. It will give you an opportunity to work on live projects with experienced colleagues, gain insight into local government and enhance skills you will need for a successful career.
The insights and experience you will gain on a summer placement will give you hands-on experience which may be helpful to you if you decide to apply for our 1-year Internship Programme in the future.
We are seeking three energetic, enthusiastic and motivated individuals who have excellent attention to detail and accuracy skills. This is extremely important, as this role provides customer service and administrative support to services within the Public Places Directorate. The placements are at our Waterhouse Lane Depot, Freighter House Depot and Crematorium.
You will be a graduate or in your penultimate/final year of an undergraduate degree in any discipline. You will have an interest in a career in local government and be keen to make the most of your time with us. You will have customer services skills and you will also be able to work on your own initiative and within a team.
Chelmsford City Council is committed to safeguarding vulnerable groups and expects all employees to share this commitment. This includes obtaining references and ensuring compliance with the Disclosure and Barring Service process.
