Trainee & Apprentice Opportunities With TRC

Two apprenticeships and five traineeships are on offer after Tablelands Regional Council received Skilling Queenslanders for Work funding.

‘We’ll be offering 12-month traineeships in systems and information, community services, precincts, systems support, and land protection and nursery; and four-year apprenticeships in plumbing, and parks and gardens,’ said Mayor Rod Marti.

‘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.

‘You can find out more about these positions at our Trainee Information Session at 3.30–4.30pm Tuesday 5 December at the Coordination Centre, 15 Vernon Street in Atherton.

‘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.

‘You can find out more and apply online until Tuesday 12 December,’ said Mayor Marti.
