Ergon Energy and Energex have launched an apprenticeship recruitment campaign offering 100 positions at 47 locations across Queensland.
General manager operational support Jeff Green said the positions included 69 new roles in regional and rural Queensland.
“Most apprenticeships are offered to local people so they can develop their skills while remaining in the community with their family and friends,” he said.
Mr Green said this year’s recruitment campaign would again aim to produce a diverse range of successful applicants, including greater proportions of women and candidates of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent.
Apprenticeships available vary by location and include electronics and communications technician, distribution linesperson, transmission linesperson, cable jointer, mechanical trade (diesel fitting) and electrician.
Apprenticeships are available at: Atherton, Bowen, Cairns, Charters Towers, Cooktown, Hughenden, Innisfail, Mackay, Mareeba, Moranbah, Proserpine, Townsville, Thursday Island, Tully, Biloela, Blackwater, Bundaberg, Charleville, Chinchilla, Clermont, Dalby, Gladstone, Hervey Bay, Maryborough, Middlemount, Moura, Murgon, Rockhampton, Roma, Springsure, Stanthorpe, Toowoomba, Warwick and Yeppoon.
