Predominately based in regional areas, our technical specialists workout in the field to install and maintain communication assets and technologies such as radio towers and fiber optics. They enjoy interesting, hands-on work that relies on electrical skills and creative problem-solving to ensure the reliable flow of electricity through substations and transmission lines.

Operations Specialists

Operational specialists hold the entire Transgrid network in their hands. Based in secure control rooms, these teams monitor the flow of electricity across the network 24/7 to ensure that the lights stay on in local communities. Their role involves responding to faults and emergency conditions, and redirecting electricity to ensure that all of New South Wales has adequate power supply during peak periods.
