The apprenticeships are aimed at education leavers, graduates, those who are early in their careers, and those looking to change careers. The apprenticeships are part of the 'Early in Careers' programme, which also includes internship opportunities.
Each apprentice will gain on-the-job experience, and receive support to achieve industry qualifications while they earn.
The first wave of apprenticeships available for applications include:
- Building Surveyor

There will be more opportunities across other professions and services advertised in the coming weeks. All opportunities will be available via the Early in Careers website.
Vice-Chair of the States Employment Board, Connétable Richard Buchanan, said: "The Early in Careers programme offers a great range of opportunities for Islanders from different backgrounds. I am delighted that we can offer such a broad range of interesting and varied options.
"Through programmes such as internships and apprenticeships, we're aiming to offer people a head-start in a rewarding career in public service, while investing in our home-grown talent."
Minister for Children and Education, Deputy Scott Wickenden, said: "Apprenticeships are a great way for people to start their careers: as well as gaining an industry-recognised qualification, they'll also have on-the job experience to prepare them for their professional life.
"Programmes like this are vital to ensuring that the Government – and the Island more widely – can benefit from homegrown talent."
