Conwy employs people straight from school
Meet Adam - Project Team ManagerJoining Conwy's Human Resources Team straight from school gave me a platform to start my career. I have been working for Conwy since 2018 working my way up from an entry level job to a management role. Alongside this, Conwy encouraged and supported my decision to start a BSc Degree in Business Management.
Conwy supports graduate training and development
Meet Sian - Human Resources Business PartnerI joined Conwy straight from university as a Receptionist before moving to Social Care, which was where my HR career began. Conwy supported me to gain the qualifications I needed and provided me with an insight into the HR profession. Today I’m a HR Business Partner. I’m so grateful for the support in the early days of my career, and the support, encouragement and opportunities I continue to receive.
Conwy can help you shape your career goals
Meet Emma - Corporate Modernisation ManagerI joined Conwy’s Social Care Team as an Admin Assistant before moving to Committee Services and then Corporate Services. Conwy ensured I had the tools to progress in project management and supported me to gain qualifications. I now lead Programme and Project Management. I would never have envisioned working in this field had the Council not peaked my interest and supported me to progress.
Conwy supports staff to change career direction
Meet Craig - Information Systems AnalystAfter a successful career as a Senior Manager for over 20 years with Tesco, I decided to pursue a new challenge and career in IT, and so joined the IT Service Desk team with Conwy. In just over a year I progressed to Information Systems Analyst alongside starting a BSc Degree based apprenticeship in Applied Cyber Security, which Conwy both fund and support through work based study time.
Conwy employs and develops skilled tradespeople
Meet Glyn - Carpenter and Response Team LeaderI began working in the Open Spaces team assisting with grave digging and burial duties. With Conwy’s support, I applied for a trade position as a Carpenter, working on small building repairs and maintenance within schools, libraries and depots. I’m now the Response Team Leader. I enjoy helping my team flourish and develop their skills and hopefully they’ll become senior staff themselves someday.
Can Conwy support me by being flexible?
Meet Judith - Library AssistantI joined Conwy’s as a Relief Library Assistant. The job was perfect for me as I had children in school. As they got older, I moved from relief cover into part-time work and have been on courses to help me develop in my role. I’ve recently been promoted to Senior Library Assistant and have been given the opportunity to study part-time for a foundation degree in Library and Information Management.
Does Conwy consider people later in their career?
Meet Bernie – Triage Officer for the Conwy Employment HubI joined Conwy after 25 years’ service with Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). Although in the twilight years of my career, I felt I still had a lot to offer. My experience complements my new role, which I’m finding both challenging and rewarding. I have made lots of new contacts and have found colleagues very supportive and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend Conwy as an excellent employer.

Meet Mel – Employment Mentor for the Conwy Employment HubI love working for Conwy, they have given me so many wonderful opportunities! I have quite complex health issues, but I’ve been supported with specialist equipment and additional support to enable me to do my job. I’m thriving here and have even been supported to complete degree level qualifications. I managed a Confidence and Wellbeing project on secondment, which has broadened my knowledge, skills and experience.
