Council blueprint for homegrown talent

first_img Previous Article Next Article Through its Undergraduate Planning Placement scheme, thecouncil entices undergraduate students who are going into their final year ofstudy to choose council work placements over more traditional summer jobs. Portfolio holder for resources, Chris Oxley, said theplacements were preferable to ‘peripheral’ jobs, which students take to makeends meet, and that the scheme would persuade them of the benefits of furtheremployment in local government. “You have to remember life can be pretty difficult forstudents. They are short of money and they worry about getting a job after theyqualify.” Oxley said the scheme also gave a huge boost to the planningdepartment, as the ‘mountains of work’ were decreasing and bosses wereperceived as acting on staff concerns. Students spend three months in the council’s planningdepartment and earn £230 a week helping planners on site and in the preparationof reports about potential building development.
