Applications open for Glencore’s Apprenticeship Program

Applications are now open for Glencore Coal’s 2025 Apprenticeship Program.

The four-year program offers individuals the opportunity to develop their skills, gain practical experience, and build a solid foundation for their careers.

Commencing in January 2025, successful candidates will receive a nationally recognised trade qualification, enjoy strong career pathways, and earn a competitive salary whilst developing their skills.

Featuring a mix of onsite, offsite, and TAFE training, program participants will also have the opportunity to explore regional New South Wales, with positions available across Glencore Coal operations in the Hunter Valley and Mudgee Regions.

Human Resources Manager for Glencore Coal, Stella De Best said the Glencore Apprenticeship Program provides a unique blend of hands-on learning, industry exposure, and career growth. 

“As participants immerse themselves in real-world experiences, they not only acquire technical skills but also develop essential soft skills in communication, teamwork, and leadership,” she said. 

“At Glencore, we believe in investing in our talent, and our Apprenticeship Program serves as an entry point for aspiring trade persons to learn, contribute, and thrive in a supportive and challenging environment.”

The New South Wales operations are seeking applicants for a range of roles, including:
