Work experience image

The City of Armadale appreciates the contributions it can make to support education and development within its community and the future workforce.

The City offers work experience opportunities to eligible students across a variety of departments. However, we can only offer students unpaid work experience placements when you are enrolled in a recognised training program (such as a high school, TAFE or University) and it is a requirement of this program to undertake a professional placement.

Are you eligible?

To participate in a work experience placement you need to:

  • Be enrolled in a recognised training program (for example a secondary or tertiary student).

  • Be required to complete relevant nominal hours of practical experience as part of your study or training program (You must be able to provide enrolment details outlining this requirement).

  • Have a specific work area in mind which should match your area of study and/or career pathway.

  • Have a specific timeframe you need to be placed for.

  • Be provided with insurance coverage by your educational institution.

What do I need to include in my application?

Please ensure that you have included all of the documents below into your application:

  • Completed Work Experience Application Form.

  • Current resume.

  • Cover letter stating the work area in which you would like to complete the work experience and details of your interest in that area.

  • Course enrolment details outlining the requirement for you to undertake a professional placement.

  • The dates of your intended placement.

  • Contact details of your educational institute (high school, TAFE or University).

How do I Apply?

To register your interest for a work experience placement, please email with your documents.

Please refrain from contacting the department directly as all Work experience requests must come through the Human Resources Department.

Every effort will be made to accommodate the request however; it is not always possible to assist.*

* Resources within the Department, including staffing levels and available project work and/or our capacity to provide supervision will impact our ability to accommodate a student
