Work Experience / Work Placement

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

Our Work Experience / Student Placement program gives students the opportunity to gain practical on the job experience and skills in a large, diverse organisation.  School students and tertiary students are able to apply throughout the year to undertake work experience.

A minimum of four (4) weeks’ notice is required to arrange work experience placements from the date this application is received. 


Please note, all work experience/student placement participants must be covered by the following insurances:

  • Indemnity/Public Liability
  • Personal Accident/Illness

For school students this means you must attach a School Workplace Learning Agreement Form to this application and for University/College students this may be either a workplace learning agreement or another form of documentation – evidence of your insurance cover must be included with this application.  Please note, failure to include proof of insurance will delay the processing of your application.

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.
