The Council is committed to assisting people within the local area by providing the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge in the world of work through our Modern Apprenticeship Training Programme.

Modern Apprenticeships (MAs) offer new and returning entrants to the labour market the chance of paid employment combined with the opportunity to do training relevant to the occupational area.

They include the opportunity to gain nationally recognised qualifications that help kick-start a career without having to study full-time. New entrants can include school and college leavers, those with no previous work experience and/or vocational qualifications.

Repairs are carried out to a high standard in line with manufacturer’s recommendations, DVSA regulations and recognised work practices and times.

2. Contribute to delivering Best Value solutions whilst maintaining the Fleet Service core values.

To complete the Vehicle Maintenance and Repair Level 3 apprenticeship qualification.

As part of our goal to improve our organisational culture and create a great place to work together for the people of Edinburgh, we want to make sure that we’re bringing the best people into our roles, not just in their skills and experience but also in their approach to work.

To help achieve this, we’re changing the way we interview and assess candidates by moving from a competency-based interview approach to a behavioural and technical (skills for the job) based approach. This new way of interviewing will allow us to assess how you think and how you would bring Our Behaviours of Respect, Integrity and Flexibility into your ways of working.

We're committed to creating a workplace culture where all our people feel valued, included and able to be their best at work, and we recognise the benefits that a diverse workforce with different values, beliefs, experience, and backgrounds brings to us as an organisation.

You can find out more on Our Behaviours web page Our Behaviours – The City of Edinburgh Council

Our salary range typically reflects the initial starting salary and annually increases until it reaches the top of the range.
