Maitland City Council welcomes new talent for 2021

Three trainees and one apprentice were welcomed by Mayor Cr Loretta Baker after signing on to work with Maitland City Council in 2021.

The traineeships provide learning and career development opportunities across the diverse areas of business administration, events and graphic design, with the apprenticeship as a landscaper.

Maitland City Council has a long history of providing traineeships and apprenticeships, bringing people in at entry level to build their capacity in a supportive environment, equipping them for their future careers.

Loretta said the opportunities provide steppingstones into their careers, whether with the council or elsewhere in the local business community.

It’s a privilege to welcome these new recruits to Council as they begin or change their careers,” Loretta said.

“We are proud of our long record of nurturing talent of all ages and providing valuable on the job experience at Council, serving the Maitland community, while supporting individuals as they undertake studies in their chosen field.

“Many of our past participants have progressed to full time roles at Council, or developed the skills and experience that has seen them secure employment with other organisations. Our 2020 trainees were no exception, with each of them completing their traineeship with a new role secured.”

Council’s three business administration trainees – Suzanne Malone, Ivy Dundas and Hayley Foster – have commenced 12-month traineeships. Ivy and Hayley are entering the workforce for the first time, while Suzanne is returning to work and undergoing a career change after raising children. Landscaper, Bailey Chircop has taken on a four-year apprenticeship.

Events trainee Sienna Edwards and graphic design trainee Myisha Edmonds are entering their second year of Certificate IV level training for their respective disciplines and participated in a welcome event alongside Mayor Baker.
