Are you creative, dedicated and full of great ideas? Do you have exceptional writing skills and the ability to engage audiences across print and digital? Are you looking to take your first steps in a career in marketing and communications?

If so, you might just be person we're looking for.

We have two opportunities for an apprentice to join Portsmouth City Council's award-winning marketing and corporate communications service. One post will work in the central marketing and corporate communications service, the other will support Portsmouth International Port.

Your new role

Both posts will be responsible for providing support for our busy marketing and communications team, getting involved in media monitoring, digital and social media, events and collateral creation and production, as well as providing essential administrative support.

You'll work towards a Level 3 Diploma in Business Administration during your time with us, which will include dedicated study time to help you achieve this A-Level equivalent qualification.

What you need to succeed

Regardless of your age, previous experience or qualifications (although you must be at least 16 years of age and not in full-time education), we welcome applications from those that show potential, determination and a drive to succeed. In return we'll give you the support you need to kick-start your career under the management of our skilled and experienced staff, whilst earning, learning and achieving nationally recognised qualifications 

at the same time.
