Traineeships, work placements and work experience

Cardinia offers opportunities for a traineeships, as well as work experience and work placements.

Apprenticeships and traineeships

  • We offer a range of apprenticeships and traineeships. These usually involve on-the-job training and training at a TAFE college or other recognised training organisation.
  • During a traineeship, trainees often work towards a Certificate IV Business while working full time at Council.

Work experience and work placements

We offer work experience and work placement opportunities so students can get an insight into a potential career or area of work.

Due to current work from home arrangements at Cardinia Shire Council due to COVID-19, work placement and work experience opportunities are limited, particularly in the office environment.

We suggest only applying for work placement for an office role if you’ve been in contact with the relevant Business Unit Manager (1300 787 624). After you do this, please submit the form below.
