Hindmarsh Shire Council offers comprehensive work experience placements to students across a wide range of our departments. Hindmarsh Shire Council's Work Experience Program is available to both secondary and tertiary students who are required to complete a work placement as part of an overall educational requirement.
Our work experience program aims to provide students with the opportunity to gain experience, skills and knowledge in a dynamic Local Government environment, by exposing them to the diverse range of service activities and functions we provide to our local communities.
Our work placements provide students with the ability to put course work into a practical context, gauge their interest and ability in various specialisations, offer experience in the workplace in interpersonal and technical skills and assist them to become more employment-ready with varied experience.
