Our work experience program offers opportunities for students to get practical skills in our workplace and newly-arrived non-student migrants and refugees to become ready for the workforce through our Work Ready Program.
Work experience provides students with the opportunity to apply and enhance their knowledge and technical skills within a practical workplace setting.
Our placements at Council expose students to a variety of tasks and projects which may be relevant to their field or desired field of study.
Students also receive insight into how business and industry operate and relate to other organisational functions.
Work experience placements are available in a variety of work areas at Council, giving applicants plenty of scope to apply themselves within a diverse organisation.
Our Work Ready program supports newly-arrived non-student migrants and refugees in the municipality to become ready for the workforce.
It is a 12 week placement (2 days per week) which enables participants to gain experience and knowledge of the Australian workplace culture.
The Work Ready Program creates meaningful work experience placements to overcome the employment challenges and lack of Australian work experience faced by immigrants and refugees.
It also builds participants skills, networks and confidence to help them go on to pursue and secure a job in the wider community.
