Traineeships

Please check the Current Vacancies page for any traineeship opportunities.

Alcoa traineeships run for an average of 12 months, sometimes longer depending on the specific nature of the traineeship.  Our trainee program aims to improve employment prospects and widen career options for participants. 

Alcoa traineeships are nationally accredited and provide 13 weeks off-the-job training. At completion, participants receive a Certificate of Attainment. 

All graduates of our Trainee Program benefit with increased employment, further education and training prospects - as well as having paid employment for the duration of the program. Trainees who are still at school receive the National Training Wage for their work.

While there is no guarantee of a permanent job with Alcoa at the end of the traineeship, many trainees do go on to be offered jobs with us.
