Scholarships, Apprenticeships and Traineeships

Scholarships, Apprenticeships and Traineeships

Richmond Valley Council is committed to creating our workforce and leaders of tomorrow.

Our YES (Youth Employment Strategy) program offers scholarships, traineeships and apprenticeships to our local young people. The program has been running since 2015 and we have had over 70 local young people work with us to learn new skills and contribute to the Richmond Valley LG story. We are very proud of our YES program and continue to offer opportunities for our young people through:

  • Professional scholarships
  • School-based traineeships
  • Full traineeships and apprenticeships

Every year, Council seeks students entering Years 10, 11 and 12 who are interested in: customer service; civil construction; planning and development; assets; finance; information technology; communications and event planning; parks and gardens; landfill; saleyards; and water and sewer.

The upcoming Career Expo will be held on Wednesday August 28, 2019, at the Casino Civic Hall.
