Livingstone provide work for trainees
THREE new trainees will come on board to work at Livingstone Shire Council as part of its 'First Start Program'.
Council will employ a Procurement, IT Support and Business Administration Trainee to assist in the development of their skills and knowledge in different areas of councils' workings.
This initiative primarily targets young school leavers and disadvantaged job seekers considered at risk of enduring prolonged periods of unemployment providing them with the opportunity of a more secure, enhanced future.
Administration and Finance Councillor Nigel Hutton said providing job opportunities for the Livingstone Shire community is crucial to providing confidence and job-ready skills for future generations.
"This is a great initiative as it provides job opportunities to individuals who otherwise may be at a disadvantage when trying to enter the job market," Cr Hutton said.
"By allowing and encouraging a variety of people to apply for these positions we are diversifying our Council and at the same time enriching the future generation of workers."
Recruitment for the Procurement and IT trainees has now closed, with the Business Administration Trainee currently open for applications.
