NRG Gladstone Power Station operates and maintains the 1680MW Gladstone Power Station on behalf of the Joint Venture Participants. The power station is a world class coal fired facility providing safe, reliable, power to local industry and the Queensland electricity grid.


Our ongoing commitment to being an employer of choice means that we always have exciting employment opportunities on offer such as apprenticeships, traineeships, co –op students and university work placements.


Our newest apprentices kick-started their working careers with NRG on 28 January 2020. The new apprentices include three Engineering Mechanical Trade (Maintenance – two Fitting and/or Turning, one Fabrication), and two Electrician/ Electronic Instrument Tradesperson (dual apprenticeships). The apprentices’ initial training will focus on ensuring they have a basic level of skills with a focus on safe work practices. This provides a lead into further skills development via on-the-job training in NRG’s maintenance workgroups.


NRG remains committed to providing opportunities for the region’s youth by offering apprenticeship training and these five new apprentices will be provided with a fabulous opportunity to develop their skills in a very supportive and diverse work environment.
