EGT offers broad industry experience, state of the art training, job security and flexibility, and great career opportunities with remuneration throughout all industries in Australia and Internationally.
EGT can help you achieve all of this by connecting you to a great future through an electrical trade.
ANY INDUSTRY - YOU DECIDE
Electrical trades reach across a whole range of industries from mining, civil construction, engineering, security and telecommunications through to residential and commercial building and construction. The biggest challenge working in the electrical industry won’t be getting a job - it will be choosing which industry you want to work in and picking the job that is right for you.
CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY
By joining the electrical trade you will be part of one of the most dynamic and technically advanced tradespeople around. The electrical industry is at the cutting edge of technology – technology that is always changing to meet the future demands of industry. Work with the latest in computer technology, software, control systems, building automation, audiovisual technology and electronic components and appliances.
A DIFFERENT JOB EVERYDAY
Not only is technology in the electrical industry always changing, the type of work you do and where you do it can also differ from day-to-day. Electricians work inside and outside building sites, mining operations, domestic and commercial buildings, industrial plants, factories and offices, and often travel to and from different work sites throughout the day.
TOP PAY IN A TOP TRADE
Electricians are amongst the highest paid trades people. Many electricians who run their own business earn more money than university graduates. From the very first day of your apprenticeship you will earn a wage, which increases each year until you are qualified.
ALL ABOUT THE LIFESTYLE
The electrical trade can be flexible with working hours, which gives you great lifestyle benefits over other jobs. Early morning starts can mean finishing work mid-afternoon giving you the time to surf, skate, hang out with friends, and do all the other things you can’t do on a 9 to 5 job.
YOUR FUTURE - A WORLD OF OPPORTUNITY
Once you have finished your electrical apprenticeship there is no limit to where your career can go. You might end up managing projects and people, doing further study in management or business, or using your trade as the basis for university or further study.
A WA qualified electrician can work anywhere in Western Australia and in most states across the country. Australian electrical qualifications are also very highly regarded internationally. This means you can even apply for jobs overseas.
