Less than one week left to apply for an ActewAGL apprenticeship
Monday 24 September 2012
ActewAGL is encouraging women to apply for an apprenticeship with ActewAGL in 2013 by submitting their applications by Friday 28 September 2012.
ActewAGL offers Electrical Fitter and Lineworker apprenticeships. Apprentices receive above-award pay, on the job training, nationally recognised tertiary qualifications and the opportunity to work outdoors in a team environment. A mature-age apprentice wage is also available for people over 21.
ActewAGL Director Human Resources Tania Hutchison said, “We generally receive far more applications from men than women and we want women to know that an apprenticeship can be a very rewarding career path.
“Women who are good at problem solving, are team players, enjoy physical work and being outside can really excel in a non-traditional trade.”
Electrical apprentices are trained in the maintenance, construction and emergency repair of ActewAGL’s electricity distribution network. They receive training and experience in constructing, repairing and maintaining overhead, underground and substation power supply equipment. Apprentices rotate through a range of specific work areas and locations to gain a variety of experience and comprehensive training.
Tania said, “Completing an apprenticeship is a great career option for both men and women. For many of our apprentices the best part of the job is that they are constantly learning new things. If you’ve ever thought about completing an apprenticeship – now is the time to submit an application and make it happen.”
