Launched in 2006, our 'Grow Our Own' trainee program is a great success story and something we’re very proud of.
The program was designed to combat regional skills shortages in both vocational (trade) and professional areas and provides the opportunity to live, learn and earn locally.
Trainees will be exposed to the dynamic and diverse Local Government industry and contributes to the sustainable development of the region’s future workforce.
