Apprentice Program

Honeywell has a long history of developing our technical teams through apprenticeships that foster leaders for our future.
Become a #FutureShaper today with the Honeywell Apprenticeship Program.

Honeywell, in partnership with MEGT (Australia) Ltd (MEGT) offer apprenticeship and traineeship programs that combine paid, on-the-job work experience with formal training.

Apprentices and trainees will have the opportunity to pursue a long-term career in an innovative and diversified industry of automation and control.

How it works

Apprenticeship (4 years) and traineeship (2 years) programs combine paid work experience with Host Employer Honeywell, while working towards a nationally recognised qualification at trade school.

Honeywell apprentices and trainees will be employed through MEGT’s Recruitment and Management Services program which ensures a support structure is in place. MEGT will be on-hand to support apprentices and trainees throughout the program, both on the job and at trade school.
During the program, apprentices and trainees will spend their work week learning at a range of Honeywell commercial sites and completing their qualification during work hours.

Apprentices and trainees will be trained by industry-leading technicians in a range of Honeywell products. Honeywell technicians are responsible for ongoing service, maintenance and upgrades of automation systems and some mechanical areas such as chiller/plant room equipment. This provides apprentices and trainees the opportunity to work across a range of facilities including manufacturing plants, hospitals, hotels, casinos, correctional facilities, office buildings, museums, airports and train stations.

We are hiring apprentices!

MEGT recruits both school leavers and non-school leavers for the Honeywell apprentice and trainee program.

We are looking for candidates with the following:

  • Willingness to learn and committed to ongoing study
  • Strong customer focus

What is in it for you?

Over the next 2-4 years, you’ll earn while you learn, gain a nationally recognised qualification and become a fully qualified technician.

From day one, you’ll be working on customer sites and learning how to apply your knowledge in a hands-on, commercial environment. As an apprentice or trainee, you’ll receive constant supervision from senior technicians, as well as the opportunity to be mentored.

Honeywell also offers a performance and development planning process, which means you’ll receive regular feedback on your progress and will always know how you’re tracking.
