An apprenticeship was a great practical way of learning for me, with the added bonus of getting paid and it led to a permanent role here.

I joined the council as an apprentice at the age of 17. I learned on the job. The training was totally relevant to what I wanted to do. It was a great practical way of learning for me, with the added bonus of getting paid. It led to a permanent role here.

I have always felt supported by my managers along the way and always felt comfortable in the systems in place to take care of Hull City Council employees. The council have always encouraged me to progress in my career and have recently funded my course in Construction Management.

I get involved in all sorts of projects to improve homes and their energy efficiency.

I am extremely passionate about this city and very proud of the investment people have managed to secure for the city. The marina is my favourite place, along with the old town. It has a great vibe and has been transformed into something beautiful.

I recommend working here. There are policies in place to ensure staff and their welfare is taken care of. Covid has been a challenge for most people. Working for the council I know there is support available if I need it.
