Whitsunday Regional Council will be encouraging students to consider a career in localgovernment at the Careers Expo to be held in Proserpine on Tuesday 12 August.
Mayor Jenny Whitney said the Careers Expo was an opportunity for employers and tertiaryinstitutions to showcase the career opportunities and study options available to secondarystudents.
“One of the greatest misconceptions about local government is the lack of understanding about the broad range of career opportunities,” she said.
“A number of people only associate Council with emptying rubbish bins and issuing rate noticesbut there are varied career paths you can take when working in local government.
“There are also a number of specialised areas that require tertiary study including engineering,town planning, building certification, mapping, and environmental health.
“Council from time to time offers apprenticeships across a number of departments, andencourages staff progression within the organisation.”
The Careers Expo provides an opportunity for students, who are considering a career in localgovernment, to speak to one of Council’s Human Resources Advisors to ensure they are on theright career path to achieving their goals.
