Apprenticeship, graduate and traineeship program

The City of Rockingham is committed to offering a number of opportunities to recent graduates and school leavers, giving them the chance to develop their theoretical knowledge and gain some practical experience in the career of their choice.

We have graduates or interns in a variety of disciplines, including:

The City also employs several trainees and apprentices in a variety of areas.
