Careers at Council

Council offers a variety of opportunities for employment based training including cadetships, apprenticeships and traineeships.

We also offer work experience opportunities that encompass a variety of unpaid work opportunities that provide the volunteer participant with the opportunity to gain specific vocational skills and experience in a work-like environment.

Recruitment campaigns for training based positions are commenced each year (generally in the latter part of each year) on a replacement base, as required.  Each year the number and opportunities vary to match operational needs offered across the diverse council departments and vocation.


Our trade apprenticeships are a great opportunity to get a head start in your chosen career. They combine practical work with structured training to give you a nationally recognised qualification and the experience you need to be a 'tradie'.

Minimum education standards are required. Recruitment for apprenticeships commences in the latter part of each year, with positions commencing early the following year for a minimum duration of four years (some apprenticeships are longer).

If you can clearly illustrate your interest in the chosen apprenticeship, enjoy practical and manual activities, an apprenticeship could be the career for you!
