Work Experience

We offer high school, TAFE and university students the opportunity to undertake work experience placements at Council.

These placements are a great opportunity to learn from our staff and gain new skills and on-the-job experience. Council’s Work Experience program is for students who are seeking experience in an aspiring career field or to try out a career field of interest.  

You can express your interest in undertaking work experience with Council by completing the form below. Once you've submitted your expression of interest, we'll be in touch to discuss available opportunities.

Please note:

  • All requests must be submitted online via the form below. Emailed requests will not be accepted.
  • Placements depend on the host team’s operational requirements and availability at a given time.
  • We require students to complete an Expression of Interest at least 4 weeks prior to their requested placement dates. Last-minute applications will not be accepted. This allows us to consider all applications and make every attempt to place students in their preferred areas.
  • We cannot guarantee any work placements.
