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 six new trainee positions and two apprenticeships.

‘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:

  • Business Trainee — Local Laws
  • Business Trainee — Community Services and Finance
  • Business Trainee — Community Development and Emergency Management
  • Land Protection and Nursery
  • Horticulture
  • First Nations Peoples Tourism Trainee. To perform this role it is essential that this position is filled by a First Nations person.

‘We’ve also got two, four-year plumbing apprenticeships on offer.

‘Join us for our Trainee Information Session, 4.00–5.30pm Thursday 17 November 2022 at the Coordination Centre, 15 Vernon Street in Atherton.

‘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 from Thursday 17 November to Thursday 1 December,’ said Mayor Marti.
