People & Careers

Apprenticeship Program

Primero recognises that to maintain a highly skilled workforce, we need to attract and develop the most talented people and provide the means and motivation to realise their full potential.

The Primero Apprenticeship Program combines paid on-the-job training with formal studies completed at TAFE. At the end of the four-year growth pathway, you will be set up for success as a fully qualified tradesperson.

Apprenticeships are currently offered in Electrical, Mechanical and Boilermaker / Welding disciplines. This is a great opportunity to rotate amongst various projects for a broader learning experience.

Upon finishing their apprenticeships, some of Primero’s graduates have taken their careers well beyond the tools and into leadership roles such as Site Superintendent.

Do you:

  • Have an interest in the resources industry?
  • Enjoy hands-on work and display an aptitude for technical work?
  • Want to build a career and work on exciting projects?

Are you:

  • A good communicator?
  • Self-motivated and enthusiastic about your career?
  • Able to problem solve?

We are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive group of apprentices. People from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply. We also encourage mature candidates to apply.

Applications will open late 2024.
