Empowering your career

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

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.

Our award winning apprentice and trainee programs not only allow you to work towards a trade qualification whilst learning on the job, but ensure you are supported by a great crew and professional training team along the way.

In 2021, we are excited to welcome 29 apprentices and 13 trainees to the business who will be based in 33 locations across NSW. Our apprentices will undertake a four year program covering all aspects of operating a modern electricity network, whilst combining on the job experience with formal training.

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, we champion inclusivity in the workplace and celebrate the differences in all of our employees.

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