Batchfire welcomes new apprentices for 2023

Batchfire has welcomed seven new apprentices in our latest Apprentices and Trainees Queensland (ATQLD) intake round – let’s give them a warm Callide welcome! 

Each year, Batchfire employs three apprentice fitters and one electrician, but during busy periods – like we are experiencing right now – we take on even more aspiring tradespeople. 

Apprentices and Trainees Queensland (ATQLD) assist with recruitment, with a proven track record offering safe skills development for apprentices and trainees across the past 30 years. 

The new apprentices at the Callide Mine are: 

Jayden Payne – Auto Electrician 

Aaron Currier – Diesel Fitter  

Sam Steger – Electrician 

Lucas McNee – Diesel Fitter

Jacob List – Diesel fitter  

Zachary Humphreys – Diesel Fitter 

Charlie Delise – Diesel Fitter 

The apprentices are pictures with key Engineering and Maintenance personnel from Batchfire’s Callide Mine, Clayton Tarry, Daniel Boal, Brad James, Paul Howell as well as ATQLD Field Officer Sally Cowan. 

At Batchfire we are proud to offer exciting trade career paths with a strong focus on work-life balance – supporting 1,250 local families within our workforce and suppliers.  

Our local-first approach means around 85 per cent of our Callide Mine employees live within the Callide Valley, so they are home each day with more time spent with family.  

Tradespeople are an integral part of our working crew at the Callide Mine, which is why we are so proud of our eager, young apprentices and their choice to work within the resources sector.  

We are always on the lookout for hard-working apprentices, so don’t miss out on our next range of intakes! Follow ATQLD on Facebook and check out their website here. 

If you’re already a qualified tradesman, we want to hear from you too as we continue to bring experienced trade technicians onboard at the Callide Mine. Find out more here.
