State Member for the Electorate of Cessnock, Clayton Barr, MP is reminding residents that applications are currently open until midnight on 27 August for the Transport for NSW Regional and Outer Metropolitan Apprentice and Trainee Programs.
Transport for NSW is hiring over 100 apprentices and trainees to work on major projects across the state and promote job opportunities in the regional areas.
In 2024 there are opportunities available across 11 disciplines, including civil construction, heavy diesel mechanics, bridge construction, electrical, painting and blasting, business administration, project management, marketing and communications, finance and safety, environment and quality, and metal fabricating.
Last year, 74 per cent of apprentices and trainees went on to secure permanent employment at Transport for NSW.

“This is a big investment in people. These positions are designed to kick-start careers for school leavers and anyone looking to enter the workforce, providing them with valuable skills, on the job training and a nationally recognised qualification.”
“These roles will not only stimulate career pathways for those who take up the opportunity but also create a pipeline for future job opportunities.”
Acting Minister for Regional Transport and Roads John Graham said:
“Regional jobs matter, and it’s essential we attract and develop the next generation of skilled workers to keep the state moving.
Transport for NSW Director of Maintenance & Delivery John Soars said:
“Apprentices and trainees play a major part in maintaining vital regional assets across our network and are critical in building a skills legacy to meet the future needs of New South Wales.
