Growing presence and opportunities

Maintaining energy assets is crucial to the reliable generation, transmission and distribution of electricity to communities. 

Together, with our clients and government, we are helping to build a strong energy future by applying our knowledge, technical capability and smart asset management methodology to ensure reliable and predictable generation, transmission and distribution networks to support communities.

Ventia’s energy networks team now operate on all major distribution networks across Melbourne with depots located in the outer east and west. 

A supportive culture

“One of the great things about this job is the culture that exists both between the teams and also with management,” said Nick Swart who is a linesman with Ventia.

“This means that our crews have everything that we need to complete the jobs productively and most importantly, safely.

To me our team feels like a big family, we all support each other, get along really well and it’s a great place to come and do good work and we all enjoy what we do.

“Flexibility is also a key feature of our work, we have a diverse team that have interests and commitments outside of work and our team is very supportive of that, allowing them to fit that within the schedule.” 

Opportunities for working across the state

Whilst a majority of the work is located across the greater Melbourne area, Ventia does provide opportunities for travel work, for crews who are interested in working in regional locations.
