nbn Industry Workforce Program


nbn is driving a significant technical skills training program in the Australian telecommunications industry, aiming to create an industry-based, sustainable, and multi-technology capable workforce in cooperation with our Delivery Partners.

To build, operate and maintain the nbn™ network, we estimate the skilled workforce available to our Delivery Partners may need to increase by more than 4,500 roles – almost doubling the current external workforce actively engaged on the nbn™ project.

The Program

The Industry Workforce Development Program includes the following key activities:

Facilitating recruitment with our Delivery Partners – referring candidates who complete an expression of interest to work on the nbn™ network to our Delivery Partners for their consideration and recruitment

Technical skills training – subsidised training pathways for individuals to gain the skills needed to work on the nbn™ network in key occupations

Accreditation – ensuring that all individuals working on the nbn™ network are accredited for nbn mandated health and safety requirements
