The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s Apprenticeship and Traineeship Program received over 60 applications for the 12 available positions this year. 

The program provides recent graduates and school leavers with the opportunity to obtain a Nationally Recognised Qualification while performing meaningful work and contributing to the successful operation of the City.

Chantelle Hall is the newest addition to the Events Team and will be working at the City for the next 12 months in the Events Trainee position. At just 18 years of age, Miss. Hall brings fresh ideas and a youth focused perspective to the role.

Chantelle studied business and graphic design in high school but always held an interest in event planning.

“I always thought it would be fun to work behind the scenes at events so when this opportunity arose, I knew I had to apply,” said Miss. Hall.  

“Whenever I attended City events in the past, I was always curious about what it takes to make something like this possible,”

Chantelle worked her first event as a trainee on Australia Day at the Sunset at the Soundshell concert featuring tribute band Pinked.

The new trainee said she thought the event would be more hectic but in fact she really enjoyed herself.

Becoming a part of the team was not difficult for Chantelle who said everyone has been friendly and open.

“Young people in Kalgoorlie-Boulder should definitely apply for this opportunity when it opens up again as the experience and further prospects, I am gaining from working at the City is going to help me greatly in my future career,” said Miss. Hall.

With her sights set on the graphics industry and a keen interest in small business the traineeship program promises to give Chantelle the starting block she needs to move mountains.

City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Mayor said that providing opportunities for youth through the traineeship program provided a range of benefits such as starting a career in Kalgoorlie-Boulder as well as the overall outcomes achieved by the City for the community.

“Our youth bring a vibrant, new perspective to our wider teams, with fresh perspectives and great innovative ideas,” said Mayor Bowler.

“I believe that traineeships are the perfect stepping stone for young people to enter the workforce and I hope that Chantelle gains meaningful experience in this role.”

Recent graduates and school leavers of Kalgoorlie-Boulder are urged to keep an eye out on the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder | Facebook page for updates regarding the program dates for 2023.
