As the fastest growing city in Queensland, Ipswich has become a vibrant centre of community and commerce.  Working for Ipswich City Council means flexibility and work/life balance, a supportive work environment, job security, generous superannuation and most importantly a strong sense of community. 


A traineeship with Ipswich City Council means a supportive work environment, an opportunity to apply for Council positions and most importantly a strong sense of community. Traineeships present an exciting opportunity for people who wish to gain both on the job experience and formal qualifications, leading to a nationally recognised certificate.
