IMPACT Community Services Limited (IMPACT) is a community owned organisation supporting the most vulnerable and marginalised members of our community. Since 1978, we have been supporting local people experiencing disadvantage, poverty and exclusion. Our vision is to work with individuals to enable them to realise and reach their full potential.

About the traineeship

If you like to work outdoors, undertake training and want to be part of an energetic team to manage the re-invigoration of important environmental sites in the Bundaberg area, this is the job for you.

The traineeship is 22 weeks of full-time paid work (76 hours per fortnight over 9 days). You will also complete a Certificate I in Conservation and Land Management. Traineeship wages apply and depend upon your level of schooling and the number of years out of school (from $338 to $605 per week).

We have 10 traineeships available as part of Skilling Queenslanders for Work and the team works closely with Bundaberg Regional Council. Across different sites in the local and regional area, you will complete tasks such as: 

  • Tree planting
  • Installing irrigation
  • Improving beach access
  • Removing weeds and rejuvenating areas
  • Repairing or installing walking tracks, fencing, handrails, timber steps and boardwalks
  • Building your knowledge and experience in environmental conversation

You need your own transport to the work site and the hours of work are 7.30 am - 4.30 pm each day.
