Women and apprenticeships

Your energy can lead to a new career in our Apprenticeship Program.

Are you a woman who loves the outdoors? Do you enjoy working in a hands-on role? Have you considered a career in the energy industry? We have fantastic women working as apprentices and tradespeople across our organisation, and we’d love to see more women apply for roles with us.

We know this is an awesome career for women. If you’ve ever contemplated a hands-on role working in beautiful Queensland, we’d love to share some more information with you about what our apprenticeships have to offer.

Why consider a career with us?

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive organisation where everyone feels welcome and supported to shine. Our apprentice program is focused on ensuring you have the best opportunities to learn and grow. Our apprentices will have both on-the-job and off-the-job formal training to teach you the skills you need to be a successful tradesperson.

We also offer a flexible work environment and value work/life balance. But don’t take our word for it, listen to some of our current and former female apprentices talk about their experiences on the apprenticeship program below.
