Work Experience

The Shire of Esperance offers work experience placements for students in a dynamic local government environment. Secondary school, TAFE and university students have the opportunity to gain valuable work experience in a diverse range of careers and work locations.


To be eligible you must be either:

  • a secondary school student who is at least 15 years old
  • a student undertaking training with a registered training organisation (i.e. TAFE)
  • a university student (if work experience is a mandatory requirement to complete the relevant course)

Students must be registered with a recognised school, tertiary institution or referral agency that covers them for personal insurance and public liability.


Work experience duration and location is dependent on the capacity of the work area to provide a work placement. When a student placement is offered the student will negotiate with the work area supervisor to confirm duration, dates and times for their work placement.
