Dematic running apprenticeship program

Apprenticeship program

Dematic has announced it will run its apprenticeship program again in 2024 after recruiting apprentices across several Australian cities in January, some of whom are still working with the company.

It notes feedback from its frontline managers has been positive, complimenting the enthusiastic and innovative energy the apprentices bring to the team.

One apprentice who started as a fourth year finished his apprenticeship and is now a fully qualified electrician working as a Maintenance Technician with Dematic.

“We are absolutely delighted with the success of our first cohort of apprentices, and their overwhelming positive feedback about their experience thus far,” says Kim Rymarczyk, Director Human Resources ANZ, Dematic.

“As we designed this program, we made a deliberate choice to adopt a refreshing, employee-centric approach that truly embodies the unique essence of Dematic. Our vision for the program extends beyond our organisation, as we aim for this program to set a new industry benchmark and one that apprentices in the many years to come, will aspire to be a part of.”

In 2024, Dematic will hire 14 apprentices across major cities in Australia and New Zealand, including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, and Auckland. Mechanical and electrical positions will be on offer.

Applications are open and close on October 02, 2023, with the program starting in January 2024.

“Leading an apprentice program offers numerous advantages,” explains Brad Davis, Training Manager, Dematic.

“Firstly, it fosters a skilled workforce by providing hands-on training and mentorship for our apprentices, ensuring that our industry-specific knowledge and practices are effectively transmitted to the next generation.

“Additionally, the apprentice program cultivates loyalty and engagement among participants as they receive valuable guidance and support throughout their apprenticeship nominal team, leading to job satisfaction and retention.”

Dematic accepts applications from all levels including school leavers and final year and mature-aged university students.

The program involves five-day induction at Dematic’s Sydney office where all the apprentices meet each other and have a chance to network.

Upon completing the program, Dematic says apprentices will be fully certified, with experience in complex industrial environments, and have access to a variety of career pathways, including field service, onsite maintenance, controls engineering, electrical engineering, and project-based roles.
