How do I become a Management Trainee? 

  • You can become an MT either by applying to the The National Graduate Development Programme (NGDP) or the Hackney Management Apprenticeship Scheme (HMA)
  • The NGDP is a nationally run recruitment  campaign by the Local Government Association which seeks to create a talent Pool of high calibre graduates (minimum of 2.2 undergraduate degree required) for councils around the country to recruit from. Hackney Council currently recruit 4 MT’s through the NGDP programme. 
  • The HMA recruit directly through our internal Employment Pathways team
  • Both NGDP and HMA participants carry out almost identical 2 year plans however there are some differences
