When trying to find electrician jobs in Sydney, it’s important to cast the net far and wide. Here are a few tips to make your job search easier.  

Search online

The first place to look for electrician jobs in Sydney is online. A simple Google search should bring you plenty of options. If not, you can go directly to regular job search platforms. Don’t neglect smaller online job boards though, as they may be more likely to include specialist positions. Consider social media platforms, too, although this approach is a little more hit-and-miss.  

Ask your professional network

If you’ve had experience in the electrical industry, you should seek help from your network. You’ve no doubt worked with many people since you started your apprenticeship. So, if you still have good relationships with people from your professional network, reach out to them. Even if they don’t have a role for you themselves, they may know of upcoming jobs elsewhere.  

Register with electrical employment agencies

Throughout Sydney, you can find electrical employment agencies that specialise in your industry. Supply Workforce is one of those and we work with the electrical supply industry. That is, when opportunities come up within the energy supply and distribution network, we help to match qualified electricians with those jobs. Whether it’s a temporary labour hire opportunity or a full-time, permanent position, we can help you get your foot in the door of this exciting industry.   You’re not obliged to accept every job offered to you through an electrical employment agency. But it’s a good way to find some interesting opportunities. In fact, they may be able to connect you with a career-changing job you never even considered.  

Undertake ASP training

While electricians can find all types of work, such as commercial or residential services, there are other opportunities out there. The ASP scheme is the NSW government’s register of persons qualified to work within the electrical supply network. Essentially, if you want to work with Essential Energy, Endeavour Energy, Ausgrid or any of its contractors, you need ASP registration.   Before obtaining this registration, you must complete appropriate ASP training. Depending on the type of work you want to do in the supply and distribution network, you can train as an ASP level 1 or ASP level 2. Completing the required ASP training opens the door to new opportunities.  

Try something different

While working in the electrical supply industry is one alternative career path for electricians, there are plenty more out there. Maybe doing different jobs through labour-hire is appealing. Perhaps you want to specialise in renewables and work as a solar installer. You may even want to teach electrical skills. There is a range of jobs where your skills as an electrician are valuable, even if you don’t want to work as a general electrician anymore.
