Transforming energy sector with future skilling

Energy Networks Australia will discuss new thinking about jobs and careers in the 21st century at today’s industry leadership forum.

Moderated by prominent journalist and author Kerry O’Brien, industry leaders will focus on big picture issues in recruiting and retaining workers while dealing with the challenges of an ageing workforce and competing for the best talent.

Energy Networks Australia CEO Andrew Dillon said with the energy sector transforming rapidly, it was imperative that it developed a more agile workforce and network businesses were responding to the challenge

“Energy networks are managing rapid change and they need the best of both worlds in their staff – people who have the core technical capabilities but who are also innovative and progressive thinkers,” he said.
