A new cohort of apprentices has joined Lichfield District Council as part of its continued drive to attract new talent into local government.

The four recruits will work in the field of business analysis for the 18-month apprenticeship, assessing how the needs of the district can be met through business change and digital solutions.

Jabir Hussain, Jagdeep Sidhu, Aidan Dhadda and Joseph Garfield are working across data analysis, user experience, robotics and customer services transformation. They will also spend time in our customer services team learning about the needs of residents and businesses.

Their work will support Lichfield District Council’s Being A Better Council programme which is transforming the way it operates to ensure services are delivered in the most cost-effective and efficient way.

Lizzie Barton, Assistant Director, Customers, Residents and Business, said:

“We are really excited to have Jabir, Jagdeep, Aidan and Joseph on board.

“They are already starting to deliver projects for us.

 “We’re looking forward to them helping us to deliver better digital and customer journeys that provide an enhanced service to our customers and take advantage of the latest technologies.

“We’re also looking forward to learning from them and using their enthusiasm to help drive forward wider improvements across the council. Welcome on board!”
