Alcoa has launched its 2020 apprenticeship recruitment campaign and is looking to employ more than 20 apprentices to begin with the company in January.

A global industry leader in bauxite, alumina and aluminium products, Alcoa has a history of training generations of skilled tradespeople.

Apprenticeships run for four years and cover a range of trade categories including mechanical fitters, fabricators, welders, heavy duty plant mechanics and industrial electrical instrumentation technicians.

Working as a first-year fabricator/welder apprentice at Alcoa’s Wagerup Refinery, Collie resident Spencer Stone is grateful to have been given the opportunity.

“This apprenticeship has set me on a clear career path,” Mr Stone said. “I work for a global company which cares about its people and I’m learning a trade I’m passionate about.

“I feel so lucky.”

Alcoa human resources director Kath Soumanis said the company offered a diverse and inclusive workplace which supported people with a variety of skills and life experiences.

“We are committed to attracting and retaining a diverse range of top talent so our success continues for generations to come,” she said.
