Our vision

Western Power's vision is to deliver on the changing energy needs of Western Australians, powered by community trust and the passion of our people.
Our vast transmission and distribution network connects Western Australians to a wide range of both traditional and renewable energy sources to power a vibrant modern lifestyle. In a rapidly changing landscape, our customers’ energy needs are evolving, and we intend to keep them connected every step of the way.

Our roles

It’s an exciting time to be in the electricity industry: a time of great change, innovation and opportunity. We need people who are as passionate as we are about lighting up the State.

Whether you’re located in an office, at our control centre or out in the field, these roles all have one common goal – powering the lives of Western Australians.

We offer a range of different entry level programs including apprenticeships, traineeships and our graduate employment program, as well as university level engineering vacation work and a high school work experience program.

We’re champions of gender and cultural equality, and our diverse employees reflect the community we serve. We actively encourage women and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to apply.
