Work experience and volunteering

Council encourages work experience and professional placement for students in an innovative local government environment.

Here at Council we help students meet their educational requirements, develop and enhance their skills so they gain an accurate perspective of the working environment in their chosen field.

Apply for work experience

To request for work experience please fill out our online application form which can be sent directly to the Human Resources Department with at least one month's notice. The student's resume and cover letter should be attached to the form. Once your request has been received, the Human Resources Department will contact you to discuss possible placement.

Please be aware that Council is not accepting any work experience or placement students at this time due to the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation in Victoria. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

For further information regarding Council's Work Experience program please contact the Human Resources department on 03 5832 9593.

Please note: Council reserves the right to refuse work experience placements.
