Getting started

Microsoft Trainees will be employed through MEGT’s Group Training program, making MEGT your legal employer. We’ll place you with a Host Employer within the Microsoft Australia network, and they’ll be responsible for your day to day work, on-the-job training and development.

Getting trained and qualified

Once you’ve started, we’ll get you signed into a Commonwealth Government Training Contract – this makes your traineeship official! We’ll also help you get enrolled with TAFE NSW, so you can start working towards your Certificate IV in Information Technology. Over the next 12-24 months, you’ll earn while you learn; applying the skills and knowledge you get from TAFE NSW to your everyday work.

So, what are you waiting for? APPLY NOW!
