Work Experience

Liverpool City Council is closely following information provided by Australian and NSW Government about novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Due to this ongoing and changeable situation, work experience placements are being accepted where the placement:

  • Is required as an essential component of completing a qualification or High School course; and
  • Can be undertaken entirely virtually; or
  • In an outdoor environment whilst meeting social distancing requirements (NSW Government Covid-19 website)

Face-to-face work experience placements indoors at Council buildings including Childcare Centres, Libraries and Administration Buildings are not being accepted.

What Is Liverpool City Council’s Work Experience Program?

This program provides a valuable experience for participants who are seeking opportunities to gain experience in various occupations, or are required to complete a specified number of placement hours in order to gain a qualification.

The placement provides participants with a learning experience using various techniques, where appropriate, including observation, training or skill development.

Insurance coverage is required for all students who are required to complete a specified number of hours in a placement in order to gain a qualification. This includes all High School, TAFE, College and University students.

Your educational institution will provide you with the appropriate insurance documentation, and you will need to attach this as part of the online application process.

If your request for work experience is not course related, you will be covered under Council’s insurance policy.

As the demand for work experience with Liverpool City council is high, we recommend that you also apply for work experience at other companies and organisations.
