Mechanical Apprentice ( Fitter) (Newcastle, NSW, AU)


We are seeking Apprentices to join our teams with a start date from Early 2024. This is a limited opportunity to gain trade skills within our steel industry, which has over 100 years of continuous history here in Newcastle. Begin your career with InfraBuild and help us to continue this vital history.


Trade apprenticeships available:

Our Apprenticeship Program creates a balance between working and studying so when you are not at TAFE learning the technicalities of your trade, you will be onsite putting what you’ve learnt into practice with heavy machinery and equipment. Our Apprenticeship Program will allow you to learn across our different businesses and departments, learning from experts in the industry.


You will be challenged, but you find it’s the best way to develop and learn. During the program, you’ll be able to draw upon the experience of your team and be mentored by experienced tradespersons and engineers to ensure your career starts in the best way possible.


It’s an opportunity to join an ever-changing business which is deeply enshrined in the history of the iconic Newcastle steel industry.
