The Northern Midlands Council, one of the largest and most diverse municipalities in Tasmania, is seeking to appoint two apprentices (1 x Carpentry and 1 x Horticulture) to join their Works Department based in Longford, Tasmania.

Both of these opportunities will allow the successful candidates to gain on the job training and experience, professional development and a nationally recognised qualification, upon successful completion of their apprenticeship.
