Council Leader Mark Robson said:

“We know a lot of our young people leave university with a degree and have no hope of getting a job in their chosen field.

“When a ‘specialist’ vacancy arises in our organisation we will look closely at the post and wherever possible we will try and recruit an apprentice graduate.”
