Keeping the power on is a vital job, and it needs the best people in control.
The scale, complexity and responsibility associated with our operational sites is not for the faint hearted. We need exceptional people to quite literally keep the lights on.
AGL’s Jacob Linton has got what it takes. He’s taken out the NSW Hunter Region 2019 Apprentice of the Year.
Now an Electrical Engineering Technician, Jacob recently accepted the award at the Hunter Region Apprenticeship and Trainee Awards (HRATA) gala awards presentation, to the cheers of his family, friends, and colleagues at AGL Macquarie.

Jacob, who is now undergoing additional operator training at AGL Macquarie, is now a contender at the NSW State Training Awards later in 2019.
AGL Macquarie General Manager Len McLachlan said the win was a great achievement for Jacob, and that it recognised his hard work and dedication.
‘We have a long and proud history of training young people in the electricity industry and look forward to this continuing in the years ahead.
Len also acknowledged Bayswater Administration Assistant Amba Ward – who was a 2019 HRATA Trainee of the Year finalist.
‘Jacob and Amba should be very proud of their hard work, success and achievements,’ he said.
