Apprenticeships and Traineeships

RCR has a strong commitment to its apprenticeship program – the key to training our future workforce.


RCR has a dedicated Apprentice Manager to oversee the program and to provide assistance to both the apprentice and supervisor. Our Apprentices are uniquely placed to benefit from exposure to a broad range of skills, due to to our operational diversity. RCR’s integrated structure provides opportunities for cross-skilling within our key sectors. Currently there are over 200 apprentices and trainees across Australia and New Zealand.


Over recent years, a number of RCR's apprentices have taken out nationally-recognised awards, including 1st, 2nd and 3rd year Apprentice of the Year honours.  Most recently Stacy Smyth, one of RCR's apprentices in New Zealand, placed 10th overall worldwide (welding) in the World Skills finals event in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
