Train Driver Traineeship

Metro Trains

Melbourne, VIC

Posted 5/19/2019

  • 44 week Paid Traineeship at $30.1820 per hour
  • 14 weeks paid parental leave
  • Job security that offers genuine career progression

Last year Metro Trains Melbourne (MTM) commenced their campaign for new Trainee Train Drivers. We had thousands of applications for these roles and are currently working our way through these applications. Only 20% of our applicants were female.

We think a lot of great potential drivers may not be aware how committed MTM is to employing more female drivers, so this time around we are specifically calling our female applicants to put their name forward.

We receive lots of feedback from our female drivers that this is one of the best decisions they have made in their career and we agree. We know that having women participate in our organisation creates diversity and a better workplace for everyone.

This does not mean that we will not be hiring males into Traineeships in 2019. There have been many successful male applicants selected and will continue to hire males from our applicants.
