Opportunity to develop Summer Skills at Frome Town Council

Would you like a career in sustainability, social sciences and community development or horticulture and estate management?

Frome Town Council is offering three part-time summer placements for enthusiastic people to develop skills in these important areas and to support the Council’s projects.

From developing sustainable transport solutions to promoting the UK’s first sharing shop; from community engagement to repairing park benches, the placements are ideal for post A-Level, college or university students wanting to brush up their skills and gain work experience over the summer.

Anna Francis, energy & recycling officer at Frome Town Council, who is recruiting for the Sustainability placement said, “Competition for jobs, particularly for young people, is at an all-time high. Having relevant work experience is a key way to differentiate yourself – that’s how I got into the environment sector years ago.

“It’s also an exciting time to get involved with Frome Town Council as we are developing a range of innovative projects and are leading the way in community engagement and sustainability.”

The times and dates of the placements are flexible but it is anticipated the placements will be for two days a week over the summer months. A £50 a week bursary will be provided for each placement. To apply check the full details at The deadline for applications is Sunday 14th June.
