Apprenticeship Careers Australia is one of Australia's leading employers of apprentices and trainees, across a wide range of industries. As a division of the NSW Business Chamber, the state’s peak business organisation, we have made it our mission to help apprentices and trainees find the job they'll love, and to help businesses find talent best suited for their company's needs. Over the years we have helped guide thousands of Australians to kick-start their careers with an apprenticeship or traineeship.

  • Maximise the successful completion rates of apprentices and trainees, through the provision of effective mentoring and support.
  • Work closely with your allocated team and build close relationships that will guide apprentices and trainees through up to 4 years of study and training.
  • Build and develop relationships with host employers, ensuring mutually beneficial outcomes for our apprentices, trainees and host employers.
  • Identify Business Development opportunities, which will see you grow your portfolio of host employers, enabling you to provide new opportunities to increase the number of apprentices and trainees launching their careers with Apprenticeship Careers Australia.
  • Develop relationships across a diverse range of individuals and organisations, such as careers advisors, education professionals, youth organisations, job network providers and TAFE's, to ensure the success of your portfolio.
  • Have the opportunity to represent Apprenticeship Careers Australia at NSW Business Chamber seminars, trade functions, careers days, Expos and our legendary pop up recruitment events.
  • Ensuring a safe working environment for our apprentices and trainees is an imperative, as on a daily basis you will be working closely with our host employers, apprentices and trainees in a consultative role to ensure safety is at the forefront of everything we do.
