Jobs & Internships

A day in the life of…

I have been employed with TransGrid for almost 9 years. I initially completed an Electrical Fitter Apprenticeship working out of TransGrid’s Orange, NSW depot. I then received the Managing Director’s Scholarship and completed my engineering degree. I am now a part of TransGrid’s Young Professionals Program as a Graduate Engineer. This is a snapshot of what a typical day looks like for me.
