The Managers of Tomorrow scheme - Gwynedd Council searching for graduate management trainees

Gwynedd Council is offering an opportunity for individuals with a degree equivalent or higher to develop a career as a manager with the authority.

 The Managers of Tomorrow Scheme offers opportunities for two successful applicants to develop as managers of the highest calibre to undertake key management posts across the Council.

 The scheme will run for two years, from July 2017 to July 2019. During these two years, the applicant will receive every support and resource possible to gain a professional high level qualification.

 The trainee will experience working within various departments and will contribute to the managerial work under supervision in a range of Services across the county. There will be an opportunity to gain valuable experiences that go beyond the usual, to address the strategic, executive and front-line work within local government, which are integral elements of the Council's functions.

 As part of the scheme, there will be continual support and reviews throughout the two years to ensure that the successful candidates get the best out of the scheme.

 Alun Lloyd Williams, Learning and Development Officer for Gwynedd Council said: “The Managers of Tomorrow scheme is an excellent opportunity to develop a career as a manager. The scheme enables individuals to have the experience, networks and qualifications needed to give a firm foundation to those who wish to start on their career as a manager.”

 Ffion Haf Williams, a Former Trainee noted: “This scheme needs a positive, passionate individual who wants to make a difference in Gwynedd’s communities. It’s an amazing experience and I certainly benefited from the scheme, I would definitely recommend that anyone who is interested to go for it.”

 Chris Roberts, also a Former Trainee added: “I had a wide range of experiences as a trainee on the Managers of Tomorrow. I went on four different work placements and accomplished many different types of work; it’s an experience that has enriched my career.”


To apply, applicants must possess (or likely to have in future) a 2:1 degree or higher, and the ability to speak Welsh and English is necessary. More details about the basic requirements for applicants are on Gwynedd Council’s website:
