Work Experience

Energy Queensland (Ergon Energy Network and Energex) offer work experience placements for high school students currently in Years 10, 11 or 12, or students completing a relevant course through TAFE.

Work experience is a great way to gain insight into our everyday work and to find out about the various jobs that exist within our organisation. Work experience can form part of a careers/job seeking cycle and in particular tie in with the recruitment of apprentices.

If you’re interested in the Electricity Supply Industry, your enthusiasm may lead to a work experience placement with us. We are regularly looking for interested candidates to nurture as we lead the future of energy supply in Queensland.

Work Experience Program:

  • Work experience opportunities at our depots and offices across Queensland
  • Open to students in Years 10-12, or studying at TAFE
  • Completed in 1-week blocks for our trade-based placements. For non-trade it can be for a shorter period.
