Public Works seeks applicants for trainee program
Do you know somebody who would like to work for the City of Minneapolis? Public Works is hiring for service worker 1 positions and for service worker 1 trainee positions. See the required qualifications and experience here. Applications will be accepted through October at www.minneapolismn.gov/jobs.
The trainee program is helping change the face of the Public Works’ workforce to better reflect the community it serves by offering adults a chance at on-the-job training to meet the qualifications for the service worker 1 position. Trainees perform manual labor to support construction and maintenance work while also learning the fundamentals of the construction industry and how to drive and operate Public Works equipment. Through the course of the program, they earn their Class B commercial driver’s licenses.
