There are a couple of ways we can help you get a foothold in the workforce. Putting your hand up for unpaid work experience could be how you can gain experience in a field that interests you. A paid traineeship will get you experience, training and a qualification.

Work Experience 

Work experience participants on the Northern Beaches often come from schools, universities, TAFEs and private organisations. They can also come from agencies involved in labour market programs. 

How to Apply for Work Experience 

Send us your short application including:

  • Start date and length of the program you’re proposing
  • Area of Council where you’d like to be placed
  • Insurance documents

If you’re a student, include the name of your school or university, who will provide insurance documents. If you’re not a student, please arrange your own insurance cover.

How to Apply for a Traineeship

You apply for a traineeship the way you would apply for any job, making sure you fulfil the requirements in the advertisement. See what current traineeships we have available at Careers at Northern Beaches Council.
