New apprentices and trainees power up their careers

01 Mar 2021

Seven Queenslanders have energised their careers by starting apprenticeship and traineeships at CS Energy’s Kogan Creek and Callide power stations recently.

They are a mix of new recruits taking their first step in the energy industry and existing employees who decided to expand their skills and qualifications.

CS Energy’s Kogan Creek Power Station near Chinchilla welcomed recent school leavers Breanna Collins, Daniel Griggs and Tomas Watson in February (pictured below).

It’s been a promising start to 2021 for Breanna, as in addition to starting a Business Administration Traineeship with CS Energy she also won a Western Downs Regional Council Australia Day Award.

Breanna took out the Local Sports Award Chinchilla for her outstanding achievements in trap shooting and clay target shooting. Now she is targeting a career in business as she kicks off her 12-month traineeship.

Meanwhile Tomas will study a Mechanical Apprenticeship and Daniel is doing an Electrical and Instrumentation Apprenticeship.

Another recent school leaver joining the CS Energy team is Holly Zischke, who has started an Electrical and Instrumentation Apprenticeship at Callide Power Station near Biloela.

Joining Holly are existing Callide workers Patrick John and Peter O’Rourke, who have secured mechanical apprenticeships, and Darryl Gooch, who is doing an Electrical and Instrumentation Apprenticeship (see top of page for a photo of the Callide apprentices).

CS Energy’s apprenticeship and trainee programs contribute to the future talent pipeline of Australia's energy industry and provide employment opportunities in the regions where CS Energy operates.
