Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships for 2025 have now closed

Have you always wanted to work outdoors and love hands-on, physical work? Would you like to work in a supportive team environment where you can contribute to your local community? An apprenticeship or traineeship with Essential Energy could be for you!

Through our Apprentice Program you can work towards gaining a nationally recognised qualification, with a combination of on-the-job and classroom-based learning. You will also be supported in gaining other relevant licences and qualifications including upgrading your drivers licence to HR grade.

With more than 3,000 employees located across over 100 local depots and regional offices, Essential Energy is one of the largest employers in regional NSW. We pride ourselves on recruiting exceptional people, who are motivated and passionate about their chosen career.

Our apprenticeships are four-year training programs that give you the opportunity to kick start your career and earn while you learn.

We are committed to developing equal opportunities for females within the organisation, with a specific focus on improving female representation in non-traditional roles. In 2025 we are offering female identified apprenticeship opportunities across a variety of locations in NSW.
