The University of Technology Sydney is offering a job with the title ‘Job searching for a utility analyst’.
It is part of a broader effort to recruit for the city’s economy by offering courses to local businesses and businesses that are already involved in the energy sector.
It is part the $1.2 billion investment the City of Sydney has made in the electricity sector since it opened its doors in the 1990s.
The City of Hobart is also looking to recruit staff.
A spokesperson for the Hobart City Council said the Council was “currently seeking qualified and motivated individuals to be a part of the City’s energy and energy-related workforce.
The position is currently open for an entry level position”.
The Hobart city council said that the city would be “investing $200 million to upgrade the infrastructure to deliver 100% renewable energy”.
While the city council has not yet set a timeframe for when the jobs would be available, the spokesman said it would be open to the start of the academic year.
In Melbourne, the Department of Industry, Trade and Investment has announced a $1 million investment in the state’s energy industry.
That announcement was made at a State Government event on Wednesday.
At a time when the Victorian Government is trying to attract more jobs, it is also encouraging businesses to open up about their potential to take on more responsibility for the electricity market, said Treasurer Rob Stokes.
“It’s great to see some of the industry leaders in the State Government talking about it and engaging with the state government,” he said.
However, he acknowledged there would be an opportunity cost to the state to be competitive with the likes of Canberra.
“In the short term, we want to get those jobs going,” Mr Stokes said.
“It will be expensive, but it will be the right thing to do.
We’ve had some very good jobs in the past and the good thing is, they’re all here for a while.”
