In addition, the State Government has made a commitment to have the rolling stock built in Western Australia.

These infrastructure projects will provide jobs during the planning phase for engineers and infrastructure planners and project managers. During the construction phase there will be opportunities for apprentices and trainees to gain skills which are readily transferable to the mining industry.

Once the services are operational there will be jobs for corporate specialists in finance, HR, and IT, business and operations management,  customer service and administration.

The ongoing maintenance and management of assets will require a big team of workers.Rail3For more information about Rail Careers and a short video with people saying they have the best job in the world, go HERE.

I went to uni because my girlfriend was going to uni. I had no idea. I struggled through my degree. I struggled to avoid teaching. I struggled to find my way in the world beyond school. After washing cars and working in bars I went into marketing and then became an English teacher. It didn't stop there. I went into TAFE, then into HR, then into designing training programs for industry before going into system design and IT. At one stage I became a world expert on collaboration frameworks!! Now I am an expert in career paths from school in Western Australia. You can tap into my expertise by subscribing to my newsletter for West Australian high schools or by working with me online as we design your perfect next step.
