Gladstone Region


We’re lucky enough to live in an attractive and growing region filled with a friendly and diverse community – mixing rural farming areas, scenic beachside towns and one of Queensland’s most significant industrial powerhouses.


Our region is home to sprawling parklands, family-friendly recreation areas, beautiful beaches, historic townships and national parks. Our love of culture can be seen in our state-of-the-art entertainment and convention centre, five well-stocked libraries and a heritage-listed public gallery and museum.


Council invests in its people to build capability within teams and provides further training opportunities through our Educational Assistance Program. Council’s workforce spans across eight business units, each uniquely supporting the community across our region.


We encourage all students to apply for our Apprentice and Trainee Programs advertised in the last quarter of each year. Each intake is different in terms of numbers and disciplines and is driven by demand. Disciplines offered may include Mechanical Fitter/Diesel Fitter, Electrical, Plumbing, Parks & Gardens, Conservation, Waste Management, Civil Construction, Events, Warehousing & Business Administration.
