All experience counts

Cumberland City Council are committed to providing meaningful unpaid work experience opportunities. We see it as a valuable contribution to the community and we will do all that we can to make it a professional, enjoyable and successful program.

Eligibility for work experience placements is normally from students that are currently studying at High School who are currently in Years 10, 11, or 12; TAFE students or University students.

All work experience placement requests are considered in the order that they are received by the business unit and applicants will receive a notification if there are successful within two (2) weeks of their application being lodged.

Please note Council will not be taking on any work experience placements during the months of December to January each year.
