Kickstart your career though Council’s E2E program

Lake Macquarie City Council is increasing its commitment to workplace training and professional development by expanding employment opportunities in trainee, apprentice and cadet roles.

Council’s Education to Employment (E2E) program is a workforce initiative that allows participants to gain on the job experience, receive mentoring and support from highly skilled professionals, all while studying for a formal qualification.

The next intake that is currently advertised has 22 positions available to start in January 2021 in a variety of roles such as customer service, IT, administration, environmental services, arts and tourism, development planning, trades, projects and more.

These roles offer a diverse range of experiences, whether you are looking for an opportunity to work outdoors in our gorgeous surrounds, be desk-based or specialise in a trade.

Mayor of Lake Macquarie Cr Kay Fraser said Council is committed to helping create jobs and opportunities for the City and is proud that the E2E program delivers this in a real and practical way.

“Our E2E program provides young people with hands-on experience at a variety of levels, while being able to live and work locally. We’re always looking for ways to attract and retain younger employees to stop the ‘brain drain’ away from our region to capital cities,” Cr Fraser said.

Council’s Director Organisational Services Laura Kendall said the E2E program allows Council to develop job opportunities in the local area and increase our ability to support young people, as they have been among the hardest-hit from this pandemic.

A recent youth survey by Skillsroad revealed that 42 per cent of the respondents had been stood down or become unemployed as a result of COVID-19 and more than half (55 per cent) were open to changing career direction to ensure job and financial stability.

“It is a great opportunity for young people coming out of high school, or people retraining, to gain valuable experience in the workplace and develop transferrable skills as they complete a formal qualification, said Ms Kendall.

“Council has a commitment to diversity and inclusion and we welcome applications from a diverse range of people so we can provide an accessible and inclusive workplace for all.” Go to lakemac.com.au/vacancies to see all the positions available.

Applications close on Sunday 25 October 2020. Videos about our E2E program can be viewed via YouTube - https://youtu.be/FQfPolzvPxU and https://youtu.be/C5BClOB8qxQ
