Start something great in 2021

Wednesday 30 September 2020

Applications are now open for Wollongong City Council’s next intake of Cadets, Apprentices and Trainees.

Each year a variety of entry-level employment and education pathways are advertised by Council, designed to provide employment opportunities for individuals without significant work experience or qualifications. The positions offered represent an important part of Wollongong Council’s contribution to the development of employability skills and entry-level careers in the region.

There are 13 roles available for the February 2021 start, open to people of all ages, background and experience. As a cadet, apprentice or trainee, people are given practical on-the-job training at the same time as studying a relevant industry recognised qualification and earning a wage.

“These jobs are a brilliant opportunity to welcome people into the workforce. We’ve had great success in the past with people entering our organisation through these pathways and developing extraordinary careers.” Wollongong City Lord Mayor Councillor Gordon Bradbery AM said.

“We are pleased to be able to offer these opportunities to our community, especially in the current economic climate where many people maybe uncertain about their future careers.”

Applications close at midday Thursday 22 October. Detailed information on each of the roles is available on Council’s website.
