Building & Construction Apprenticeships

Applications have now opened for Building & Construction Apprenticeships in Sydney

Australia is currently seeing a big investment into Infrastructure projects and JobTrail is partnering with some of Australia’s largest Civil Construction companies to provide labour and entry level apprenticeships. This is your chance to be working on an iconic project right here in Greater Sydney.

If you have been unemployed for a long period of time or have more recently found yourself unemployed due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, you may be eligible for our pre-employment program.

To be eligible you must be registered with an Employment Service Provider.

You will need to be able to answer YES to most of the questions below:

  • Are you physically fit?
  • Can you pass a Drug and Alcohol test?
  • Can you pass a Police check (role specific)?
  • Do you hold a current driver’s licence?
  • Do you have your own reliable transport?

​Program Goals

The program aims to provide employment opportunities for 10 Aboriginal Australians living in the Sydney area of New South Wales.
