MP Launches Search For Apprentice To Join His City Team

MP Julian Huppert has launched a search for an apprentice to join his team at his Cambridge constituency office.

The apprentice will be the first in a campaign launched by Julian for Cambridge Regional College to recruit 100 apprentices in 100 days.

He or she will work 30 hours a week dealing with issues arising from correspondence from constituents, as well as receiving training.

The role will involve:

  • Speaking to constituents, other MPs, government departments and agencies by telephone;
  • Monitoring the main casework email address and ensuring that urgent emails receive attention;
  • Opening the post, scanning letters in to our system and assigning to the correct member of staff;
  • Occasional attendance at constituent surgeries to support the MP.

The apprentice will also be completing the apprenticeship framework in customer service with Cambridge Regional College.

Julian said: “I am delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to an apprentice. The apprenticeship scheme is an excellent way for young people to learn valuable skills in a working environment. It also gives employers the chance to play their part by offering a training place which will give a young person that all important first step on the job ladder. I hope lots of companies in and around Cambridge will sign up to this campaign and take an apprentice”

Cambridge Regional College’s 100 apprentices in 100 days campaign is part of a national scheme to provide more apprenticeships.
