Engineering Trades Australia is a true workforce specialist. We are unique in the way that we are 100 per cent committed to the supply of staff to the engineering, mining, fabrication, manufacturing, mechanical and electrical industries.

As a trusted Australian engineering workforce supplier, our professional personnel make it their priority to work with you to meet your organisation’s needs.


We have a strong team of experienced consulting staff, industry best practises and support teams to meet our client’s needs.

We understand your requirements and will work with your organisation to ensure that:

  • Supply of trades and personnel is consistent

  • Compliance is met

  • Quality of workmanship is kept at high standards



We understand that not all engineering tradespeople are the same. Workshops, fixed plant, mobile plant, fabrication, shutdowns, on-going maintenance – the list goes on. We get that your temporary contractor needs will vary from assignment-to-assignment, so we have ready candidates for your varied needs.

Our workforce is tried and tested, inducted to major mine sites with current medicals on file to ensure contractors can be mobilised at short notice.


The recruitment methodology we use is built and developed around the engineering trades industry rather than a generic recruitment template.

Our innovative system allows us to capture the information required to match the skills and experience of our workforce with your company’s needs. It is far more advanced than traditional profiling tools and is tailored to the engineering trades industry.
