  • Matthew Roke

    Accountant – Children’s Social Care

    I joined Devon County Council as a Finance apprentice in October 2010, at a time where I was unsure what career path I wanted to follow? The apprenticeship scheme allowed me gain valuable experience in several finance teams giving me a real-life experience on what a career in Finance for me would be like.

    Since completing my Apprenticeship and Business Administration qualifications, Devon County Council have supported me in completing my AAT Accounting qualifications, as well as the Chartered Professional Accountancy degree in Public Finance (CIPFA) which I am currently studying.

    Following several promotions, I am currently working as an Accountant supporting Devon County Council’s Children services with aspirations to progress further in Devon Finance. The Apprenticeship Scheme was the perfect stepping stone for me to begin my career in finance!

  • Molly Grenfell

    1st Year Office Support Apprentice in Customer Relations

    Having only worked at Devon County Council for 4-5 months, I’ve been completely blown away by the amount of opportunities that’s been available to me. Not only has it broadened my knowledge of Business in general (for my qualification), but also my understanding of the local government and politics.

    My apprenticeship has already developed so many of my skills and my confidence has shot up, I’m really excited about what the future has in store!
