A shout out to BMO who recently hosted one of our talented Trainees, Logan, as part of our Apprentice and Trainee Industry Initiative. Logan who is set to complete his Certificate III in Information, Digital Media and Technology with Council next month, has gained valuable industry experiences and insights as part of his placement while at BMO. We'd love to continue to give our Trainees the opportunity to work with our local businesses, give us a call on 1300 COUNCIL if you're interested in finding out more about our Business Industry Placements.
