Public Sector Traineeships

Legal Aid WA participates in the Public Sector Commission's Aboriginal Traineeship Program. This program offers young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people an opportunity to develop public administration skills and competencies by completing 12 month's paid employment in an administrative position at Legal Aid WA. 

Participants who successfully finish the traineeship will receive a nationally recognised qualification of a Cert II or III in Government. 

While there are no guarantees of ongoing employment at the end of your traineeship, Legal Aid WA and the Public Sector Commission will work with you to identify potential opportunities, either with us or at another employer.

How to apply

This program is open to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are 25 years or under. Applications are open all year round and must be submitted online through the stream for Aboriginal youth on the Jobs WA website.


More information

The program is run by the Public Sector Commission. More information about Public Sector Traineeships can be found below and on the PSC website.
