The 12-month traineeships are in systems and information, community services, precincts, systems support, and land protection and nursery, while the four-year apprenticeships are in plumbing, and parks and gardens.

“We’re specifically targeting youth, mature-aged job seekers (45+ years), Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, migrants and refugees from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, people with a disability, displaced workers, women re-entering the workforce and veterans / ex-Australian Defence Force members and their families,” Mayor Rod Marti said.

“These opportunities demonstrate our ongoing commitment to increasing workforce participation, driving job growth and strengthening the economy of the region.

“Most of our trainees and apprentices remain in our workforce, find alternative employment or take up study after their time with us.

“It’s something we’re very proud of.”

Anyone interested in the trainee positions or apprenticeships can find out more and apply online by going to www.trc.qld.gov.au/careers until Tuesday 12 December.

The Skilling Queenslanders for Work project is funded by the Queensland Government.
