Telecommunications Traineeships

A telecommunications traineeship is a great career option and offers many benefits to both individuals and employers. Some of JB Hunter's qualifications can be achieved through a traineeship. 

What is a traineeship?Fotor01011122412

A traineeship is a contractual agreement between an employer and an individual who is employed as a trainee. A traineeship combines paid employment with formal training by JB Hunter and on-the-job training with a workplace supervisor.                                  

Types of telecommunications traineeships

Existing worker traineeships are undertaken where an employee has a three month or more employment relationship with their employer. The working relationship can be built up through full-time, part-time or casual employment or engagement as a seasonal or contract worker and includes periods of approved leave.

New worker traineeships are where someone is a new employee (employed for less than three months) and is signed up into a traineeship.   

School-based traineeships are undertaken part-time while the trainee is still at school in years 10 - 12.             

Government Incentives

Telecommunications linesworker and telecommunications technician are trades listed on the Australian Government’s ‘National Skills Needs List’.
