The Yorkshire Dales National Park is one of the most beautiful landscapes in the UK and we are looking for someone who would love to help us promote it. From September 2019, we have an opportunity for an enthusiastic individual to kick start their career in an apprenticeship with the Communications Team.  

These are exciting times – in 2016 the Park increased in size by 24% and took on even more incredible landscapes to protect.  The Authority works to look after the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the area and creates opportunities for people to enjoy and understand its special qualities.

You will gain valuable work experience, primarily in social media and web development, as well as marketing, publishing and media relations etc and to top it off, a qualification to take away with you at the end. Throughout the two years you will complete an Advanced Apprenticeship in Social Media and Digital Marketing, working towards a Level 3 City and Guilds Diploma.

If you love working with digital technology and are interested in using your marketing and IT skills in a creative way, this could be the ideal job for you.
