Eurobodalla Council welcomed twelve new trainees, apprentices and cadets this week.
As one of the shire’s largest employers, Council’s trainee program has been providing local young people with employment and skills development for more than a decade. The 2020 intake filled positions ranging from horticulture to asset support, engineering to business administration.
Moruya local Jack Harding has joined Council’s infrastructure team as trainee design and survey officer.
“I’m looking forward to learning the ropes while I study for a diploma in civil engineering,” Mr Harding said.
William Inglis has been visiting the area for the last 24 years and moved permanently to the area to take up a cadetship with Council’s water and sewer team.
“I’m currently studying civil engineering with an environmental minor,” Mr Inglis said.
“My grandparents live at Broulee and I’ve wanted to move here so this is a dream job, it’s worked out really well.”
Council’s general manager Catherine Dale said young locals often struggle to find employment within the shire and Council’s program provided on-the-job experience alongside formal training.
“As always, there was keen interest with hundreds of school leavers registering their interest. I wish these successful applicants all the best as they acquire skills for the future and bring new perspectives to our team.”
