What is an Admin Services Apprenticeship?

Admin Services provide quality admin support for management teams within the different departments at Sellafield Ltd across each of the Value Streams.
Our placements mainly range across numerous depts that fall within Group Business Services, such as the Secretarial and Admin organisation, Resourcing and Expenses to name a few examples. Other placements that may also be offered can range across other functional areas of the business such as Information Services, Training, Stakeholder & Comms and HR.
Throughout your Admin Services apprenticeship you will complete three placements across various departments; this will consist of two 6-month placements and one 12 month placement.

What will I be doing?

Your role will include activities such as diary management, arranging meetings, taking minutes and event organising . You may also work as a secretary to a small number of senior managers of the company. Your role will be predominantly desk based (but you may be required to work from home on occasions) and you will have the opportunity to complete a Level 3 in Business Administration whilst on the scheme; this is achieved by attending college once a month.

What do I need to consider?

Admin Services is available at both locations (Sellafield, Cumbria & Risley, Warrington).
The role is suitable for individuals with a strong interest in secretarial and administrative work and will require you to have strong organisational skills. You will be liaising with different colleagues from across the organisation and therefore, will require you to have good communication skills.
This is a great opportunity for you to learn about the different departments within Sellafield Ltd in a supportive environment. However, you need to be open to receive feedback and quickly learn new things as change can happen quite frequently at Sellafield Ltd.
