  • Finance Minister Conor Murphy has launched a new Operational Delivery Apprenticeship scheme for the Civil Service.

    The new apprenticeship scheme will have 45 places across the NICS, the majority of which will be within the Department for Communities.

    Economy Minister Gordon Lyons, whose Department takes lead responsibility for the policy on apprenticeships, also commented on the scheme stating: “The provision of apprenticeships across all sectors and ages is key to economic recovery as they provide individuals, who are most likely to be impacted by recession, with employment and opportunity, whilst also equipping them with the skills business require to increase productivity and rebuild our economy.”

    Applications for the scheme open on Monday 6 September.
