Isaac Regional Council has officially welcomed eight new trainees to the organisation.

Mayor Anne Baker said Council was proud to offer a traineeship program that saw locals from all walks of life upskilled and job ready.

“Many of our trainees and apprentices go on to stay at Council or step into other employment opportunities in the region.

“Programs like these reflect our outlook that this organisation and our region is built on the strength of pure people power.

“These positions combine hands-on work experience with a nationally recognised qualification.

“Each trainee will be with Council for between one to two years in duration, with positions in administration, information digital media technology, land and conservation management, regulatory services, water and wastewater and libraries.”

Mayor Baker said this year’s traineeship intake was boosted by a significant subsidy offered by the Queensland Government’s Skilling Queenslanders For Work First Start and Community Recovery Programs.

“We acknowledge the continued support by the State Government for Council’s traineeship program.”
