Apprenticeships and Traineeships


We will advertise our 2020 apprenticeships in October.

Apprenticeships and traineeships are a great way to combine exceptional training with the security of paid work. You’ll gain a nationally recognised qualification and learn practical skills that will be highly valued in any workplace. 

As a Sunshine Sugar apprentice or trainee, your on-the-job training will take place within one of our three mills and refinery located at Harwood, Broadwater or Condong. You will gain experience in a variety of tasks as you are mentored by one of our qualified and experienced professionals. You also receive guidance to develop your personal workplace skills which will broaden your career opportunities in the future.

Our apprenticeship and traineeship program trains people to become qualified in a particular trade. Upon completion, you will receive a nationally recognised trade certificate. We provide a structured apprenticeship or traineeship process, supported by theory components through local TAFE.

Sunshine Sugar take very seriously their commitment to creating employment opportunities in the Northern Rivers of NSW. Sunshine Sugar has a policy of equal employment opportunities and promote a smokefree workplace.
