One of the career pathways into Cornwall Council is as a graduate. 

Cornwall Council has joined the National Graduate Development Programme (NGDP). 

This is a two-year programme run by the Local Government Association (LGA).  It fast tracks graduates into a leadership or management career in local government.

You will also gain a post graduate CMI Qualification Level 7 Diploma in Leadership and Management.

Throughout the programme, graduates are employed by the Council and work in different services.  You will be encouraged to make a positive impact in our services and for Cornwall.

To find out more and begin your career adventure, visit the LGA National Graduate Development Programme website where you can apply online.

If you don't have a degree or the programme isn't for you, Cornwall Council also has apprentice opportunities.  Some of these are up to Degree and Master's degree level.
