This will be the third consecutive year that Gippsland Water has had an intake of these employees," he added
"When the Victorian State Government announced that another round of traineeships would become available under the "YES" Scheme, Gippsland Water was again quick to apply as we see this as a great opportunity to provide employment and training for youth in our community. "
Gippsland Water is committed to supporting the local community and is working with the local group training providers, Eastern Victorian and Gippsland Group Training to select the trainees.
The Traineeships will be 12 months in duration and will require the participants to study towards various certificates as well as gaining invaluable on the job training in the areas of Customer Services, Field Operations or Administration.
