HM Treasury is actively supporting the Government apprentice scheme. Our 2012 apprentice recruitment campaign resulted in five new recruits all of whom are paid.

Apprentices will be studying an NVQ in Business and Administration during their first 12 months. This will be supported by an apprentice training provider, on the job training and a range of learning and development offerings available in house and via Civil Service Learning.

There are no paid interns currently working at HM Treasury. The Department has previously participated in the Civil Service Summer Diversity Internship Programme.
