Concordis Traineeship applications open

Are you a young adult with a passion for wine-making? Are you keen to get involved in the wine industry?

If you are, applications for the Concordis Traineeship, that helps high school students and young adults get a tertiary education in the Wine Industry and paid mentoring, are now open.

The Concordis Traineeship goes for two years and provides up to $5,000 per year towards a student’s TAFE study expenses. It also involves paid work traineeship and mentoring through Barossa based wineries during the student’s course.

The program is designed to help people who may otherwise be prevented from considering tertiary education in the wine industry because of financial disadvantage.

Applicants will need to have a strong work ethic, be enthusiastic and active and have the ability to get on with the people around them.

This trainee position is partly funded through Foundation Barossa and is an Award role offering substantially above traineeship wages.

Students currently completing Year 12 are encouraged to apply (in which case, start date will be deferred until January 2019).

If this sounds like the right opportunity for you, please email your application including a cover letter outlining why you would fit the position and your resume to info@foundationbarossa.org.au, no later than Monday September 17.
