Trainee & Apprentice Opportunities With TRC

Tablelands Regional Council’s ongoing commitment to increasing workforce participation, driving job growth and strengthening the economy of the region is being boosted by eight new trainee and apprentice positions.

‘We’ve been fortunate to again receive Skilling Queenslanders for Work funding to provide these opportunities in our community,’ said Mayor Rod Marti.

‘Skilling Queenslanders for Work provides skills development, training and job opportunities to unemployed, disengaged and disadvantaged Queenslanders through a suite of targeted skills and training programs.

‘We’ll be offering 12-month traineeships in information and technology, community development and emergency management, local laws, community service/tourism, horticulture, and civil maintenance; and four-year apprenticeships in carpentry and plumbing.

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

‘It’s something we’re very proud of.

‘You can find out more and apply online until Friday 25 March,’ said Mayor Marti.

The First Start program is proudly funded by the Queensland Government.
