Working in partnership with ARC Wind, Squadron Energy is providing an opportunity for locals to work in the renewable energy sector with two Trainee Wind Turbine Technician roles available for First Nations people in Wellington.

Squadron Energy’s Executive General Manager People & Culture Kate Sykes said that engagement of First Nations people in our projects is paramount, and this is an incredible opportunity for us to work with and to power up First Nations careers in the booming renewables industry.

“The goal is for these trainees to become skilled as a Wind Turbine Technician over 12-months, with the potential to then work locally at our Uungula Wind Farm,” Ms Sykes said.

“We are always looking at ways to bring benefits to the communities where our projects are based, and we are thrilled to be able to provide an opportunity that engages our First Nations people, to get the skills they need to work in renewable energy.”

ARC Wind Managing Director Andrew Linsdell said the traineeship provides an opportunity for successful applicants to dive headfirst into the wind energy sector, setting them up for a fruitful career in turbine construction.

“We are excited to be partnering with Squadron Energy, to provide hands-on experience for those ready to start their career in renewable energy, which is a rapidly growing industry,” Mr Linsdell said.

“We have a dynamic team who can provide unparalleled knowledge in all aspects of wind turbine construction to equip our trainees with the skills they’ll need for a thriving future career in this sector.”

The trainee role will be responsible for completing on-the-job training under the supervision of a competent ARC Wind Turbine Technician over 12 months.

To apply, applicants must write a cover letter introducing themselves and explaining why they are interested in a career in renewables, then email the cover letter and their resume to hr@arc-wind.com. Applications close Friday 6 October 2023.
