Job Description

  • Apprenticeship Intake 2023 – Ergon Energy Network and Energex (Energy Queensland)
  • Various Nationally recognized trade apprenticeships are available, located in metro, regional and remote areas of Queensland
  • Great opportunity to take the next step towards an Apprenticeship with experts who will mentor and support you through rotational placements

We are now looking for passionate people who want a career in the electrical industry to join Ergon Energy Network and Energex (As part of Energy Queensland).

Energy Queensland is one of the largest electricity networks in the western world and employs thousands of people right around the state. We have various electrical apprenticeships on offer in metro, regional and remote areas of Queensland, to commence in February 2023.

We connect and supply electricity to 2.1 million customers powering communities from Tweed Heads up to the Torres Strait and from Brisbane across to Birdsville covering 1.7 million kilometers. We are at the forefront of embracing new technology, new ideas, alternative energy solutions, and smart grid technology. We are building the network of the future to power Queensland’s economy and we are looking for passionate people.

At Energy Queensland, we value people who work safely, think creatively, embrace diversity, and want to engage, listen, learn and expand their knowledge.

Selecting people with the aptitude to undertake a career in the electricity supply industry is critical to the success of our apprentices. We will consider experience gained through relevant tertiary vocational studies including a Certificate II in Electrotechnology or work experience that demonstrates a potential aptitude for a trade apprenticeship.

An apprenticeship at Energy Queensland is never dull and is very rewarding. You can join in one location, and soon enough, you may spend some time in another part of the state to complete a range of training experiences. An apprenticeship can also be an attractive alternative to tertiary studies and an excellent way of gaining essential experience in your career from day one.

Your opportunities are only limited by your imagination, passion, and motivation to succeed in your career. Not only will you be working to keep the lights on for customers, but you will also become a qualified tradesperson whilst being part of a team that contributes to making a difference in the way power is supplied to our communities.
