TEN new apprentices have bolstered the ranks of Leeds City Council’s parks and countryside team.
The new recruits have joined ten existing members of staff in the team’s thriving apprenticeship programme.
Eight of the new apprentices will start work in the horticultural team, with two in business administration.
The new starters will split their time at the council with studying for qualifications at Leeds City College.
They will be based at locations across the city including Temple Newsam, Rothwell, Holbeck and Morley.
Coun Mark Dobson of Leeds City Council (pictured front with Coun Lucinda Yeadon), said: “Our parks and countryside apprenticeship scheme is continuing to move from strength to strength.”
