Stanwell hires local talent

STANWELL Power Station will take on four new apprentices this year - all from the Rockhampton region.

Stanwell Corporation Limited acting chief executive officer Richard Van Breda said the four new apprentices would take the total number of apprentices and trainees at Stanwell Power Station to 19.

Three of the new starters come from Rockhampton while the fourth, from Far North Queensland, completed his schooling in Yeppoon.

"We warmly welcome these new apprentices to Stanwell Power Station - it is an exciting time for them and it is great to see their enthusiasm for their new jobs," Mr Van Breda said.

"Stanwell takes pride in giving young Queenslanders top class skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. And they will be trained in Stanwell's strong safety culture that gives the very highest priority to keeping them safe at work."

The new Stanwell apprentices will work towards tickets in boilermaking, electrical and mechanical fitting.
