Permanent contracts do not have a fixed end date and are only terminated when the employee or employer wish to do so. Permanent contracts are the most common type of employment offered by the Council.
Fixed-term contracts have a fixed end date. Fixed-term contracts may be offered to cover work on a specific project or to cover maternity leave.
A casual contract does not guarantee work, and when work is offered the employee is not obliged to accept. This agreement can be ended by either party at any time after the agreement has been made.
Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes that are a mixture of employment and college or private provider training. Apprenticeships can offer young people a positive first step on to the career ladder and the chance to do a job while gaining nationally recognised training and qualifications.
If you are a young person needing help to find employment, education and training, the Connexions website is a useful resource.
