Recent university graduates are being offered the chance to get a head start on their career in School Infrastructure NSW (SINSW), contributing to the building of new or upgraded schools across NSW.

SINSW has launched its Graduate Program in August 2023, available in metropolitan Sydney for people who’ve completed a diploma or degree qualification in Engineering, Property, Project Management, Information Technology/Computer Science, Sustainability, Procurement, Planning, Business or similar areas.

The School Infrastructure Graduate Program is the third level of the Educational Development Program, following on from the NSW Infrastructure Traineeship for Year 12 school leavers and the School Infrastructure Cadetship aimed at tertiary students in their last year of a diploma or the second last year of a bachelor degree.  

James Cavallaro recently completed the Traineeship Program and now has a full-time job with SINSW, working in IT support.

“It introduced me to an awesome network of people that helped me grow and helped me learn from being a student with no knowledge to someone with a pretty good sense of what the industry means and what it can do,” he said.

The SINSW Graduate Program offers recent graduates a two-year opportunity to gain on-the-job experience in their area of expertise within the infrastructure industry.

Graduates will contribute to the planning, delivery and maintenance of new and upgraded schools across NSW.

Anthony Manning, the Chief Executive of SINSW, said the program will tap into the most talented graduates across the state.

“As a key organisation in the build of major infrastructure across NSW, SINSW is constantly searching for talent to fill the various opportunities in its workforce,” he said.

“Graduates will engage in work that has a positive impact on NSW communities.”

SINSW is delivering new school buildings, major upgrades and maintenance strategies to ensure every school-aged child has access to high-quality education facilities at their local public school.

Tiana Riley is one of the current trainees.

“I’m learning a lot of skills and applying them in the workplace which brings it all together in a practical environment,” she said.

Myles Pymble is a cadet and is thoroughly enjoying the experience.

“It offers challenges outside of my comfort zone, with real stakes that offered problem solving and innovative thinking.”

The Educational Development Program will enable School Infrastructure to deliver against the NSW Government Action Plan: A Ten-point Commitment to the Construction Sector for government-procured infrastructure.
