Graduate jobs in the public sector

Most graduates who go on to work in this sector start out in entry-level roles and move up with promotion. This may include working in administrative roles before reaching management positions.

Graduate schemes are rare in this sector and you may need to build up your work experience before landing yourself a graduate job. The Local Government Association runs the National Graduate Development scheme and local councils may operate their own schemes in specific departments.
