The District of Warwick is looking for an Apprentice to join the Electoral Services Team.

The Electoral Services Team ensures that all residents in Warwick District are registered to vote and organise all elections and referendums within the District.

  • Answer calls and emails from electors
  • Assist with incoming post and categorisation of application forms
  • Process voter registration forms in our software systems
  • Work at the centre of the organisation for the running of elections, referendums and the annual electoral canvass,
  • Develop strong professional relationships within the team and with others we work alongside,
  • Complete a level 3 Business Administration qualification funded by the Council.  This will involve attendance at a college and/or completing tasks in the workplace (depending on specific course requirement) and will provide practical and theory-based qualifications.
