CS Energy supports bright young talent

07 Feb 2019

CS Energy recently welcomed six new Electrical and Instrumentation Apprentices at its power stations and three Business Administration Trainees at the Brisbane corporate office.

CS Energy CEO Andrew Bills said the intake continued CS Energy’s commitment to developing the next generation of the energy industry and building a more diverse workforce.

“Almost half of this year’s apprentice and trainee intake is women, including two of our electrical and instrumentation apprentices, which is traditionally a male dominated field,” Mr Bills said.

“The intake also includes one person who identifies as being of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent.”

CS Energy has set targets for increasing female and ATSI participation in the business by 2022 and increasing the percentage of women in leadership and non-traditional roles. The company has also had gender pay parity since 2016 and conducts annual reviews to maintain this standard.

Mr Bills said CS Energy’s apprenticeship and trainee programs contributed to the talent pool of the energy industry and provide employment opportunities in the regions where CS Energy operates.

“Our new apprentices and trainees will be provided with on-the-job learning opportunities and access to the latest training and technology,” Mr Bills said.
