A Traineeship or Apprenticeship is a fantastic opportunity to kickstart your career with The Hills Shire Council and get on-the-job training whilst working towards a Nationally Accredited qualification.

Currently, The Hills Shire Council offers Traineeships and Apprenticeships in the following area:

  • Business Administration
  • Childcare
