Trainee & apprentice programs

EngineerWe want our apprentices and trainees to reach their full potential so our apprenticeship and traineeship program offers something different. As an apprentice or trainee, you will be taking advantage of:

  • structured off-site training
  • learning a trade/skills and gaining a nationally recognised qualification while being paid
  • paid college fees and travel related expenses
  • fully equipped toolkits for apprentices
  • supplied safety uniform and/or personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • supportive mentoring and coaching from experienced tradespersons and supervisors
  • comprehensive induction program
  • access to the Employee Assistance Program

The minimum age for entry into apprenticeships or traineeships is generally limited to candidates who are 16 years of age or have completed Year 10 schooling and are an Australian resident or hold an appropriate visa.  You can do an apprenticeship or traineeship if you are a school leaver, re-entering the workforce or as an adult worker simply wishing to change careers or gain new skills. We are an equal employment opportunity employer and encourage females, mature aged and Indigenous candidates to apply.
