Australian technology services provider Kinetic IT is proud to announce the first intake for its Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander traineeships program.
Working with Kinetic IT’s long-time customer, the Western Australian Department of Education, trainees will come on board with the company for an initial 12 months while continuing their Certificate III in Information Digital Media and Technology studies.
The paid traineeships offer those new to the IT industry hands-on work experience, learning the ropes and building up their capabilities across customer service, infrastructure, incident management, cyber security and more.
Multiple Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander traineeships are available at the East Perth location with the first intake due to come on board from August 1 2022.
Kinetic IT’s Head of Capability, Mary Shaw, says the organisation looks forward to bringing the trainees on board.
“I encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are intrigued and curious about IT to throw their hat in the ring and apply. This industry is really fun and exciting, with so many career pathways to follow depending on what takes your interest.
“I’m looking forward to welcoming our eight trainees into our crew and watching them deliver fantastic outcomes which support our customer’s work to provide education to school children across Western Australia.”
