Meet and greet for 24 new apprentices starting work in Scunthorpe today (Monday)
North Lincolnshire Council will today (Monday September 3) welcome 24 new apprentices at Scunthorpe Civic Centre on their first day at work.
Their arrival is part of a scheme that will see 160 apprentices join the authority in the next four years.
In April, the council took on its first wave of 16 young apprentices.
The new recruits – aged 16 to 30 – will work in a variety of different roles including IT, traffic, horticulture, administration, catering, customer services and family support.

During their time with the council they will achieve a Level 2 qualification.
Each will have a mentor to ensure they achieve maximum benefit from their work placement.
Today they will meet the authority's leader, Councillor Liz Redfern, and chief executive Simon Driver.
Councillor Redfern said: “Taking on young apprentices at a time when job opportunities are scarce is something this council is committed to.
“It’s important that we give young people a chance in life. Officers work to support them and help them gain vital experience.
“We are giving young people the opportunity to work for the largest organisation in North Lincolnshire. And who knows? it could lead to greater things.
"We are determined that this scheme will help North Lincolnshire plan and invest in its future workforce."
