AKD Softwoods are looking for school leavers interested in taking a gap year before moving into further education or for developing future career opportunities and growth. We are offering several opportunities for committed and motivated school leavers, who are looking for gap year or development placements.

We have two streams available for successful candidates to work within our experienced team across different departments in our Colac and Irrewarra sites.

There are two positions available in office-based roles, working through a structured gap year program that could be designed to suit your chosen field of study or career direction. Placements start with operations and then rotate within Finance, Administration, Human Resources, Health & Safety, Sales & Marketing, IT & Software and many others.

There are also five positions available in operational roles, giving practical experience for those looking at moving into manufacturing, production, quality, trades, etc. These placements develop practical skills and supply and understanding of various production and servicing roles available for career development.

These opportunities can help with career decision making and may lead to further part time work during your studies or ongoing full time employment within our national organisation.
