Work placements

Sometimes the best way to know if you really like a job, is to experience it. We offer a limited number of work placements across our business. Contact education@hydro.com.au for further details.

Career chats

We visit schools, in person or via video conferencing, to show students what an energy career could look like. We provide support and advice on how to write job applications, expectations at a job interview and can set up mock interviews. We can also share the experience of what it is like to participate in our apprentice or graduate programs and provide insight into what to expect if selected for one.

Career events

We support school career events and provide career displays manned by our employees. We can answer questions about what it's like to work at Hydro Tasmania, types of careers, career pathways, recruitment advice and provide advice on subject selection.
