As energy continues to change, so does the field of electrical repairs. The demand for electricity is higher than ever in Australia as more and more residents and businesses utilise appliances, electronics, and AC systems that use even more power. In our always-on world, more people than ever are connected to the grid, and that means that we need to empower future generations of electrician to keep up with the country’s increasing level of power consumption. It could be something as simple as a short circuit that takes an entire server room offline for a company, which could mean hardware failure, data loss, and massive fees for enterprises.
We talked to Bone Electrical about the future of electrical work, “In terms of job growth, there’s a massive demand for electricians in Australia and other countries around the world,” Greg explained, “And that means that any electricians who are getting into the field now will likely be employed for the rest of their lives.” Bone Electrical and thousands of other professional electrical repairs companies across the country have seen a major uptick in the number of call-outs in the last few years. With more and more people encountering problems with outdated and faulty wiring revealed by heightened power consumption, the need for electrical tradesmen is higher than ever.
Whether you’re already deeply involved in the industry or you’re thinking about becoming an electrician, many companies like this one require you to be thoroughly trained, “You’re going to need, at the very minimum, your certifications and license. The more experience you have, and the more formal training you’ve done, the better your chances of landing a job with a company like this one. It’s important to show that you not only have experience but that you’re future-focused and willing to embrace new technologies and tackle tough jobs.”
ElectricTV posits that the “future is bright for Electrical Workers” in their 2017 article on the subject, “There’s never been a better time to be an electrician. Good employment prospects—higher pay levels, and competition are likely to bring the top talent into our industry.”
