NBN Co is seek­ing thou­sands of skilled work­ers as con­struc­tion of the na­tional broad­band net­work ramps up in Perth. The com­pany has launched a na­tion­wide search for job seek­ers who have more than three years of ex­pe­ri­ence in re­lated in­dus­tries in­clud­ing mo­tor ve­hi­cle man­u­fac­tur­ing, min­ing, road and bridge con­struc­tion, boat build­ing and elec­tric­ity dis­tri­bu­tion. WA cor­po­rate af­fairs man­ager Ebony Aitken said this was NBN Co’s big­gest year yet in con­struc­tion and ser­vice ac­ti­va­tion and sev­eral thou­sand skilled work­ers were needed to build, op­er­ate and main­tain the net­work. No di­rect telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions ex­pe­ri­ence is re­quired and suc­cess­ful can­di­dates will have ac­cess to train­ing and in­dus­try recog­nised com­pe­ten­cies. The com­pany an­tic­i­pates there will be long-term em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties once the net­work build is com­plete.
