Join our team and help make London a City for all Londoners

We are looking for up to 17 exceptional individuals to join our apprenticeship programme at City Hall, home of the Mayor of London and the London Assembly. 

On offer is the chance to get hands-on experience working with one of our many and varied teams while also studying for a nationally recognised apprenticeship.

You will be supported to make the most of your time with the Greater London Authority (GLA), with on and off the job training and plenty of opportunities to contribute to work across the organisation.

We will expect commitment and enthusiasm, in return we promise a chance to contribute to the future of London and learn a fantastic range of skills. 

An apprenticeship is a structured programme of learning (a combination of on and off the job training). On the job, an apprentice works alongside GLA staff, off the job they undertake a tailored training programme, working towards nationally recognised qualifications (NVQ level 2 or 3 in Business Administration, determined at the start of the programme, following individual assessments).
