For employers

Attract and retain high performing teams with specialised learning, development and credentialing solutions.

Australia is facing a widespread engineering skills shortage. As the profession’s peak body, Engineers Australia works closely with government, academia and industry to monitor and improve the situation.

One way we do this is by partnering with businesses to attract, upskill and retain their talented engineering workforce.

Whether your organisation is a large corporate or a small business, we have a learning, assessment or credentialing solution that’s right for you.

With a dedicated client manager, simple online dashboards and streamlined processes you can manage all your organisation’s training and credentialing needs with minimal effort.

How we can help you

Engineering workforce credentialing

If your organisation’s goal is for engineering staff to become Chartered or to apply for NER or state registration, you’ll have a dedicated resource to work closely with you and your teams. We’ll help you:

  • understand the capabilities in your engineering workforce
  • scope your requirements and propose a partnership model
  • create and activate memberships
  • guide your employees through what they’ll need for their assessments
  • conduct pre-assessments
  • conduct interview assessments
  • advise applicants of their assessment outcomes and formalise their credentials.

Our workforce credentialing program also enables you to gain a workforce-wide view of the skills and competencies in your talent pool. This invaluable information helps you to fill knowledge gaps and maintain a fully skilled workforce.

Corporate learning solutions

Our corporate learning solutions are delivered by our subsidiary, Engineering Education Australia. It provides multi-faceted training that can be delivered in person or online, as webinars, live virtual workshops or self-paced short courses.

EEA’s course catalogue is comprehensive with all content created by engineers and industry experts, so it’s always up-to-date and relevant.

Tailored training

We can customise training courses to meet your organisation’s specific needs. This means we work with you to understand what your teams need and then design targeted training to address the learning or development needs of your engineering staff. We also specialise in developing competency frameworks for your organisation.

Tailored training can be delivered online or face-to-face – or a mixture of both, at a time and location that suits your business. Learn more about tailored training for engineers.

Strengthen your workforce with global engineering talent

Access a steady pipeline of skilled engineers ready to jump on projects through our latest initiative, the Global Engineering Talent (GET) Program. 

This program is the outcome of research on the employment barriers for skilled engineers and offers a comprehensive strategy to bridge the gap between overseas qualified engineers and the Australian businesses who need them.

The 18-week program includes training and a paid work placement to equip engineers with the skills, knowledge and experience they need to thrive in Australian businesses. By filling these knowledge gaps, we’re empowering a talented and qualified pool of engineers to put their skills to use where they’re needed most.

Graduate development program

Investing in the professional development of your engineering graduates is an important way to attract and retain them.

Our program bridges the skills gap from university to the workplace. Over 18 months, your graduates will access structured learning to gain practical interpersonal and project management skills they can apply directly to their work. They’ll learn how to drive their own performance to be able to practise independently and work towards a Chartered credential. Plus, they receive membership for the duration of the program Learn more about our graduate program.

Student and graduate jobs board

Our jobs board lets you place your job and internship vacancies in front of an audience of more than 40,000 student and graduate members. Attract young engineers to your organisation’s graduate program, internships, vacation placements, work experience and early career roles.

Get started by setting up a free employer account with our technology partner Prosple. Then follow the steps to post positions to our jobs board on the EA portal. You'll receive applications directly to your inbox or to your organisation’s application tracking system.

How it works

Your organisation might benefit from one or more products and our experts can give you the right advice. To start, you’ll have a consultation with one of our team to determine your organisation’s needs and objectives.
