The Council announced this week the appointment of a further nine new apprentices and trainees, bringing their total to twelve apprentices and five trainees employed by Council.
Cassowary Coast Regional Council Mayor, Mark Nolan said apprenticeships and traineeships were important to Council as they provide important options for people to start their career or begin a new career path.
“These training jobs play a vital role in making sure people have the skills they need and provides an opportunity to learn and develop new skills, whilst earning an income.
“I am proud to welcome our latest group of apprentices and trainees. We have welcomed three apprentice plumbers and one apprentice fitter and 5 trainees completing traineeships in the fields of Conservation and Land Management and Business.
“Council looks forward to being a proud host of apprentices and trainees for years to come.
“The quality of our new entrants is high, and I look forward to seeing their personal and professional growth assisted by our existing Council team members.
“Training people in a wide variety of areas benefits Council and the community, opening up career opportunities for trainees and apprentices on completion.
“We’re proud to say that a number of our previous trainees and apprentices have secured employment with Council, or other employers, following completion of their training. It’s testimony to the quality of our training, our team members who provide the training and of course the commitment of the trainees and apprentices themselves,” he said.
Customer Experience Officer Tylah Savage recently completed her traineeship with Council and successfully gained her Certificate III in Business Administration.
Tyler said she was thankful for the opportunity to have learnt new skills whilst having a role dedicated to full time training through a combination of on and off the job training.
“The traineeship opened up a new future for me and a new direction. I have grown so much during my traineeship and have many new skills that I will carry with me into the future.
“It is a lovely feeling to be in a position to help the community and being able to assist customers with their enquiries is my favourite part of the role.”
