Young people in Moray urged to check out Parliamentary career

A career at the Scottish Parliament could await for young people from Moray through an apprenticeship programme announced this week.

The programme will see at least 20 new apprenticeship positions being created over the next few years in a national initiative that is open to anyone in the 16 to 24 years age group.

Visitor Services, Security, Human Resources and IT are some of the departments who will be taking part in the initiative.

To introduce the scheme to those who may be interested an open day is to be held at the Parliament on Friday, November 21 at which prospective apprentices might meet with staff and pose any questions they have on the recruitment process.

Urging young people in Moray to make a bid is local MSP Richard Lochhead, who said: “This is a really exciting opportunity for young people and I hope Moray folk get involved and spread the word about these apprenticeships.

“I would be delighted to see Moray well represented in the process and would encourage anybody who is interested to find out more and go along to the open day.

“With applications being sought between 21st November and 7th December, there is plenty time to consider the positions and with 20 new apprenticeships available, there really will be something to suit a variety of interests.

“The Scottish Parliament is a modern and exciting workplace. It has a great atmosphere – as does our capital city – and I’m sure this programme will appeal to a number of young adults who are considering their career options.”

Further information is available and can be accessed at the Scottish Parliament website.
