Council has eight new positions available for its 2023 Apprentice and Trainee intake and they’re not just for school leavers.

Workplace diversity and flexibility are a major focus of the Apprentice and Trainee intake program.

“Council is a fantastic place to work, and we encourage people from all walks of life to consider taking on a role in our workforce,” Mayor Williamson said.

“With roles across the board, from libraries to local laws and water services – there is something to pique everyone’s interest,” he said.

“The apprentice and traineeships often lead to full time work at council, and we are very proud to say we have many of our past apprentices and trainees still working here even 10 years later.”
