Applications are open for the 2019 apprentice intake at CS Energy’s Callide Power Station near Biloela and Kogan Creek Power Station near Chinchilla.

“When you work as an apprentice at CS Energy, you will be part of the team that operates and maintains one of Queensland's largest energy portfolios,” Mr Albertson said.

“Our apprentices work hands-on with plant equipment and instrumentation controls and are supported by committed leaders who are experts in their fields.”

CS Energy is searching for three electrical and instrumentation apprentices at Callide Power Station and one electrical and instrumentation apprentice at Kogan Creek Power Station.

“I’ve found CS Energy has a very supportive culture – you’re allowed to use your initiative to get work done,” Corey said.
