Youth Employment Program

Customer Service Officer at the City administration desk with the City logo in the background.

We are pleased to introduce our new 2022/2023 Youth Employment Program, a three-year paid traineeship offered to seven young people between the ages of 16-24 years. This investment in our community will provide the participants with access to paid employment and training opportunities (trade and tertiary) while building on the job experience in their chosen area. 

The traineeships will be offered in horticulture, arboriculture, trades, business administration and engineering, and will provide expert mentoring and guidance with on-the-job support from City supervisors and employment support agency, Nudge. 

Nudge will be promoting the program through visits with local schools in Rockingham and will be facilitating the recruitment in collaboration with the City. Positions will be open for applications via the Nudge current opportunities page from 22 August 2022. 

Interviews and selection will be completed in September/October 2022 and we anticipate the successful applicants will start with us prior to the end of year. 

For more information about the program or eligibility, please contact Nudge on 9323 6378 or via email
