Recruitment for LANA traineeships has commenced for 2024. The Traineeship is based in Cairns.

LANA traineeship 2024

With the opportunity to work within the Land Council and learn skills from across the organisation and build an understanding of management, governance, and administration.

The Program

The program includes modules that are tailored to suit the management of PBCs working to meet the responsibilities of land management on native title land.

We offer tailored support for Trainees who have completed year 12 and are aged between 18-21. We work with PBCs to identify talent, and support participants during the process of relocating to Cairns to complete this program.

Lana meets the demand for jobs in communities and the need for capable Indigenous administrators who wish to develop beyond an administrative role and into local management positions in their region or across the Cape York Regional Organisation if they choose.

We offer in-house and external mentoring to provide support to them with their work, and attendance, and if the participant is living away from home the Lana program can provide funded self-contained accommodation within walking distance to the CYLC Office.

All you must do to apply is write to us at telling us why you would like to be part of the LANA program, and provide some information about yourself. For example, where you went to school, what were your favourite subjects, what you enjoyed most and least about school.
