Why apply for an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship with us is never dull and is very rewarding. You can join in one location, and soon enough, you could be on your way to experiencing a range of training experiences in another part of the state.

An apprenticeship can also be an attractive alternative to tertiary studies, with your career and salary starting from day one. You will become a qualified tradesperson whilst being part of a team that contributes to making a difference to the way power is supplied in our communities.

We really value diversity and encourage people from all backgrounds to apply, including women, mature age applicants and Indigenous Australians, as well as others from minority groups.

  • completed Year 12 and passed Senior Maths A or General Maths, English and a Science subject is highly advantageous, or
