Work experience and student placements

Please note: With recent developments relating to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We have currently suspended work experience / work placement applications during this time.

Secondary and tertiary education students are able to apply throughout the year to undertake work experience with the City of Onkaparinga.

Our Work Experience / Student Placement program gives students the opportunity to gain practical on the job experience and skills in a large, diverse organisation.

All applications for work experience with the City of Onkaparinga must be made online.


Before you begin

You will need the following items to submit your application:

  • a minimum of 4 weeks notice
  • proof of public liability / indemnity insurance
  • proof of personal accident / illness insurance

If you are a secondary school student, your school must provide a school workplace learning agreement showing proof of insurances.

Next steps

All applications will be considered however, as work experience requires close supervision of participants, this must be balanced with council’s operational requirements so all work experience will be at the discretion of the City of Onkaparinga.

You will receive a response within 7 days.
