Then this is your perfect chance to take your first step in what can be a lucrative career; one that can open doors for you. We’re on the lookout for someone who is committed and motivated and can help Sefton Council manage contracts and tenders, provide advice and support to colleagues and bring in innovation into how we buy goods and services. As our higher-level apprentice, you’ll be learning on the job while working towards your Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply qualification, which will set you up for a rewarding and challenging career.
