I want to hire a trainee

For anyone involved in the current Community Traineeship Pilot Program, as trainees or employers, please visit our COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update page here.  

Information for prospective employers

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

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

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