Want to get paid while you gain valuable work experience?

If you enjoy working with a team, have a positive attitude, possess great communication skills and demonstrate an eagerness to learn, the City's Apprenticeship and Traineeship Programs are for you.

With an opportunity to gain hands-on experience working in local government, our traineeships and apprenticeships allow you to earn while you learn. 

Our programs allow you to complete a nationally recognised qualification, and with positions available across our organisation, you're guaranteed to find a field you enjoy.

How does it work?

Accepted trainees and apprentices will undergo our on-boarding process to support their entry into the workforce.

They are assigned a mentor who will provide on-going guidance and assistance throughout their program and further careers within the City.
