Careers for Young People in Local Government

Are you just starting your career and looking at Local Government as a prospective employer? Hurstville City Council employ a number of Trainees as part of our Professional Traineeship Programs. This program has a big impact for people at the start of their career. The Library Museum and Gallery employ two trainees – one in business administration and one in library studies.
Shereny Selim presented an extremely popular paper in Canberra at the 2011 International Public Works Conference organised by the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia. The topic of her paper was ‘Grab Them While They are Young’ and focussed on how programs such as Hurstville City Council’s Professional Traineeship Program can make a difference to address current skill shortage problems in the Local Government industry by attracting emerging professionals to Local Government as a prospective employer.
