Shellharbour City Council

Work Experience Application

Posted: 27 Feb
Closes: 30 Jun
Shellharbour, NSW


Council's work experience program provides students with an unpaid opportunity to gain on-the-job experience. The program assists students to develop specific work skills and to become familiar with a workplace and the expectations of employers. We are dedicated to providing meaningful industry experience to students in a variety of areas across Council.

Work experience placements are available throughout the year. The number and timing of placements will depend on whether the work area can provide an effective on-the-job experience.

Due to the amount of requests we may not be able to accept all placements. We will let you know as soon as possible about your application.


You must be a secondary or tertiary student seeking relevant unpaid experience. Students need to be covered for public liability insurance by a recognised school, tertiary institution or referral agency.

Preference will be given to students living in the local government area.
