Three positions available in Whyalla


OUTSIDE OFFICE: Ada Ryan Gardens is one of the areas trainees will learn new skills.

The City of Whyalla has a great job training opportunity for three people.

Council is advertising traineeship positions in horticulture (two) and civil construction. The traineeship employment is being managed by Career Employment Group (CEG) and will involve fulltime work with Council crews to earn a Certificate 3 in horticulture and civil construction respectively.

Council CEO Chris Cowley said filling these sort of positions was one of the more rewarding aspects of the Council recruitment and employment process.

“While Council is an equal opportunity organisation, these positions really are perfect for young people in their local environment,” Mr Cowley said.

“Where possible, as a Council, we aim to provide employment for people living in the region and these positions lend themselves to young people who have grown up here and would like to pursue a career locally.

“It is a chance for three young people to not only score a job but get some excellent on-the-job training and come out at the other end with some meaningful qualifications.”

The horticulture traineeships will see the successful applicants assist with landscape construction work, gardening, basic machinery operation and horticulture processes to name a few tasks. The Civil Construction traineeship will involve operating small plant, carrying out manual excavations, support plant operations and planning processes among other tasks.

No qualifications are required, just a good work ethic, good health and a driver’s licence is preferred. Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people are encouraged to apply.

For further information contact Kevin Rogan from CEG on 8645 6800. Applications can be made by sending a cover letter with the job ID (horticulture 0142, civil construction 0143) and your resume to
