Work Experience - Gardening and Landscape

  • Unpaid Work Experience opportunity
  • Placement available between October 2018 and June 2019
  • An exciting time to get involved in Local Government

The successful applicant will be involved in general garden maintenance duties including weed removal, planting and annual displays across our parks and gardens in the Canterbury Bankstown Local Government Area.

Due to the safety aspect of the work within the trade areas, students are only able to use manual tools or observe work in progress. That is, you cannot use any mechanical machinery, such as lawn mowers, blowers, brush cutters etc. If you have completed a pre work experience Work Health & Safety training course (White Card), and can supply us with a copy of your certificate of completion, then special consideration may be given to undertake some “hands on” work in gardening.

You must also wear appropriate Personal Protective Equipment that will not be supplied by Council.  This has been identified as steel capped boots, broad brim hat, long sleeve t-shirt and trousers.

General Information

  • Successful applicants must have own transport to and from base location of work.
  • Canterbury-Bankstown Council is committed to our Work Experience Program; however, we cannot accept every applicant. Most areas will only be able to accommodate one placement at a time.
  • When applications close at the end of July, supervisors will short list applications, giving priority to those applicants who attend a local education institution, or who live in the Bankstown Local Government Area.
  • Priority will also be granted on those that have provided the relevant information requested by Council in their application.

How to apply:

Applications must be submitted online by clicking the 'Apply' button below and creating a login using your email address. The following information must be included in your application:

  • A cover letter including information of the area the student would prefer to work in, the dates you are available for work experience to take place, and the available hours.
  • A resume including current education information and any past work experience.   

Applications close 31st July 2018.

People with a disability are encouraged to apply
