Thiess’ has recently opened its 2017 Apprenticeship Intake. Information about the Program and application process is available on the Thiess website here.

Briefly, working with experienced colleagues at various Thiess projects, their four year structured Apprenticeship Program will offer students the chance to participate in training towards a nationally recognised trade qualification.

You will need to be self-motivated, conscientious and committed to developing a career for yourself in the resources industry. A mature attitude is essential and you must be willing to learn new skills and accept direction.
