Apprenticeships

Empowering your career

If working outdoors and in a team environment is appealing to you, an apprenticeship with us may be the perfect way to kick start your career.

Apply now

During your apprenticeship you will work towards a trade qualification while learning on-the job. Your apprenticeship journey will be supported by a great crew and a professional training team.

Essential Energy is committed to building a culturally diverse and inclusive workplace and strongly encourages applicants to apply regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation or disability.

As an organisation, our aim is to champion inclusivity in the workplace and celebrate the difference in all our employees.

Our apprentices live and work right across regional, rural and remote NSW – we currently have apprentices in more than 50 towns, from Albury to Tweed Heads, to Broken Hill and many places in between. 

We are excited to welcome 25 new Apprentices in 2021. They will all undertake a four-year program, combining formal training with on-the-job experience and covering all aspects of operating a modern electricity network.

Essential Energy receiving the 2019 Australian Apprenticeships Employer Award in November last year shows that our new Apprentices have first-rate training experiences ahead of them, leading to a range of career opportunities across the business.
