I want to hire a trainee (Dandenong\Hume)

Information for prospective employers

As part of the program, VCOSS has engaged two Local Partner Organisations from two local government areas:

These organisations will provide local project coordination, including trainee recruitment and support, and recruitment and support to Host Organisations (employers) who take on a trainee.

Trainees can work in any location so your organisation can be located outside of Hume or Dandenong – the trainees only need to live in either of these local government areas.
