Work Experience & Placements

Work experience and placements are a great opportunity to work alongside people who are passionate about making a difference in the community.  Due to the variety of work at Council, we offer a diverse range of work experience opportunities. Find out more about the business units that make up our organisation structure 

Work experience is generally for a short period of time (usually one week) and provides an opportunity to gain experience and exposure to Council operations.  

Work placement is again for a short period of time, but usually taken in a block (e.g. daily for 2 weeks, or as 1 day per week over a period of months). The placement is a mandatory requirement of a course being studied at school, TAFE or University.
