Stuart Irwin, a graduate in Governance over the past year said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working in the Democratic Services team. My workload has been varied, ranging from supporting the Scrutiny Committees to exploring how Falkirk Council will implement participatory budgeting.

"The graduate scheme has helped me developed my research and reporting writing skills. By far, the best aspect of my role has been getting to meet and work with colleagues from across the different Council departments and services."

All posts are advertised on myjobscotland and in local universities and colleges and will close on Friday 27th March.
