LEAP into a career at Council

We take great pride that we focus on employing our workforce from our local communities and beyond. We believe that the best way we can assist to improve the lives of our people is by offering greater opportunities for young people, new entrants and anyone seeking a career change. We hope to create new opportunities for you to work, live and play in the region while being able to reach your potential. 

Lismore Employment Acceleration Pathways (LEAP) program offers a range of apprenticeships, traineeships (including school based) and cadetships across Council which are a great way to LEAP into a career at Council, with combined formal learning and on the job experience.
