FOUR apprenticeships at Kyogle Council need to be filled by the end of the month.
Acting branch manager of employment agency Novaskill, Andrew Goodchild, said he'd love to see Kyogle school leavers in the jobs.
"We're after anyone with a heartbeat and basic literacy. You just need to be willing to work,” he said.
Kyogle youth often have to leave town in order to gain work so this is a great opportunity, said Mr Goodchild.
There are two jobs in road construction and maintenance and two jobs in wooden bridge construction and maintenance.
The latter two projects are long-running and will add to the economy of Kyogle as well as help maintain its rich history.
Before the Federal Election, Kyogle Council received $2.2 million in Federal Government funding to replace seven bridges.
The grant under the government's Bridges Renewal Program is matched dollar for dollar by the Council.
The funding is in and those bridges need to built.
"We'll be shortlisting late next week. It's something that needs to get happening,” Mr Goodchild said.
Applicants will need a white card. Novaskill and Kyogle Council are Equal opportunity employers. Indigenous youth are encouraged to apply.
