Workers working on a tunnelling project

This is an exciting time to join Australia’s biggest public transport project. Sydney Metro will shortly be looking for more great people to help us deliver this new world-class railway system that will transform Sydney.

To register your interest in jobs with Sydney Metro visit the iworkfornsw website, set up a profile and create a job alert. To search for a job with our major contractors, click on the tabs below to see the diverse opportunities on offer. Our contractors will advertise positions on behalf of the project as required.

When Sydney Metro Northwest opens in the first half of 2019, it will benefit not only the 400,000 people who already live in the North West region, but also the extra 200,000 people who will be living in the area over the next 20 years. In fact, Sydney Metro Northwest is as significant to the people of the North West as the Sydney Harbour Bridge was to the North Shore.

To help us achieve our commitment to deliver a quality rail link that meets the needs of our customers, the project team will be looking for talented candidates to help us shape the future of a world-class system.

Jobs will become available for Sydney Metro Northwest as construction work progresses on the three major contracts for the project. The three contracts are:

  • Tunnels and Station Civil Works (i.e. tunnelling)
  • Surface and Viaduct Civil Works (i.e. skytrain)
  • Operations, Trains and Systems.

Business opportunities

In addition, to maximise the benefits of construction of Sydney Metro Northwest for businesses in the North West and all of NSW, an industry “match-making” program has been established.

The program helps link businesses and trades like electricians, plumbers, truck drivers, concreters, tilers, mechanics and surveyors with the managers of each major contract on Sydney Metro Northwest.
The program is being run by Industry Capability Network, a business network that connects companies to projects and is funded by the NSW Government through NSW Trade and Investment.
