About Infrastructure traineeships

The NSW Government has designed a two-year traineeship in the infrastructure sector to provide paid training opportunities for some of NSW’s 2020 school leavers.

Applications for the two-year program have closed and more than 130 trainees are commencing in their infrastructure-based office roles in February 2021.

This new traineeship is a collaboration between NSW Government infrastructure agencies and approved industry partners.

The traineeships are office based, with trainees spending time in government, with a contractor and with a consultant organisation.

This will provide them with valuable exposure to the broader industry, understanding the important role each party plays in the successful delivery of public infrastructure.

Trainees will study with TAFE to complete a Cert III or Cert IV in courses such as project management and procurement. The program is managed by a Group Training Organisation who is responsible for recruiting and supporting the trainees to complete their qualification. The courses are funded by Training Services NSW and each government agency will pay the trainee’s salary plus any service fees.

Trainees have been selected from both regional and metro areas.

How to apply

Applications have now closed for the 2021 Infrastructure Traineeships. However, we encourage you to find out about other opportunities in construction and infrastructure.
