Work Experience


Work experience provides many benefits, giving you skills and experience that will allow you stand out to potential employers as well as helping you choose the right sector to work in.

Key benefits are:
•Soft skills – team working, communication skills and commercial awareness, all of which are sought after by employers
•Differentiate yourself and make yourself more employable – an important thing to factor in when competition for jobs is fierce
•Personal development – skills you learn during work experience are the first steps towards ticking off competencies

FWS provides opportunities for work experience a for eligible participants to support transitions to paid work. Funded projects include:
•Carpentry and recycling – Brinkley Salvage & Save (near Murray Bridge)
•Alexandrina Council – Community beautification

In addition to funded projects FWS has a volunteer programme available and we would like to hear from you if you are interested in joining our team. Visit our Careers page to find out how to apply.
