Are you currently studying an undergraduate degree at university and looking for flexible paid work?

Applications are now open for our 2021 Transport for NSW Cadet Program!

Choosing which series to stream tonight is hard. Choosing your career path can be even harder. Maybe you already know exactly what you want to do, perhaps you have no idea yet, or you sit somewhere in between. Let us help you discover what it is that you love to do through our Cadet Program. 

With a team of 27,000 people working across New South Wales in urban and regional communities, this is your opportunity to discover what makes you tick and make a difference right across the state.

Working with Transport for NSW could see you upgrading our road network on the Pacific Highway, from Woolgoolga to Ballina, to bring commuters home to their loved ones safely. You could consult on environmental plans for the new Western Sydney Aerotropolis to design a sustainable future for our cities. You might work with big data and inform future network upgrades. Build game-changing projects with the Parramatta Light Rail, Sydney Metro and Regional Rail and enable greater than ever connections in our cities. Or develop a communications campaign about road safety to increase public awareness. The opportunities are limitless.

As a Transport for NSW Cadet you will…

  • Experience one to two years of learning and career development
  • Gain exposure to a range of work and projects across the organisation
  • Enjoy flexible work arrangements that fit in with your studies; and 
  • Work directly with industry leading experts
  • We offer our Cadets interesting, challenging and rewarding work that makes a real impact to communities across the state and are looking for people who are passionate, ambitious and committed. Along the way, you’ll have plenty of fun, meet supportive people and enjoy experiences like no other.

  • Learning program, where you’ll have direct access to mentoring, networking events, and workshops; and
  • Work-life balance that fits your life and studies, supported by flexibility policies that are, well…flexible
