People interested in applying for a council traineeship in 2020 have been invited to contact the South Burnett Regional Council for more information.
A Council spokesperson said traineeships would be available in library, administration, civil construction, horticulture, workplace health and safety and laboratory operations.
Council is partnering with South Burnett CTC, the Local Government Association Queensland and the State Government to fund, recruit and select candidates for the 12-month traineeships.
The State Government’s First Start program, part of the Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative, provides wage subsidies to Councils and community-based organisations to employ extra trainees.
The program offers opportunities to young people and disadvantaged job seekers to gain nationally recognised qualifications and 12 months employment.
Council will advertise the traineeships in the New Year.
