The trainees and apprentices will have the opportunity to earn while they learn, have the costs of their training course covered and receive invaluable mentoring and on-the-job training.

The jobs on offer are in construction and maintenance, parks and gardens, water treatment plant operations and businesses administration while the two apprenticeships are for a plumber and heavy diesel fitter mechanic.

The funding for these positions was made under the Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative, part of the First Start Program.

Mayor Angela Toppin said it is important to offer new job opportunities to shire residents at council.

“Council has an ongoing commitment to improving workforce participation and to promote job and economic growth within the Shire,” she said.
