We have diverse intakes of apprentices and cadets across our sites. Find out about the experiences of women who have completed this program below.
Schindler values attitude and enthusiasm over gender and wasn’t scared to hire a woman. Apprentices at Schindler are seen as an important part of the company’s future and I would definitely recommend it as a career path to anyone who is interested.
Natasha Cupsa, Service Technician VIC
At times it can be quite challenging where I put extra pressure on myself by expecting to remember everything I'm told and shown. However, the people I work with are very supportive and always willing to help which has assisted in gaining invaluable insight to further develop my skills and knowledge.

Julia’s role is all about ensuring our engineering team provides tailored solutions to our customers within a specific timeframe and budget.
Schindler is a place of opportunities. With the right mindset and attitude, Schindler can help you to achieve your goals. My journey with Schindler started as a member of the Systems Implementation team, which was something completely out of my mechanical engineering skill set and therefore very much outside my comfort zone. From there, Schindler not only provided me with the opportunity to utilise my engineering skills, but understand the importance of investing in their people and this is why it is such a great place to work .
Julia Zwirko, Engineering Manager NSW
Working at Schindler has been a very different experience for me and I discover new things all the time. The openness of everyone has been noticeable especially being such a large corporation. My experience with previous large well known corporations was that it was very divided in a sense of your department stays with your department. Where as in Schindler everyone works together and mingles together as one.

For Tania, no day is the same. It’s managing customer expectations, juggling the project delivery in various stages of installation and championing safe work practices.
I was involved in the Courageous Careers program last year and was encouraged to take more risks and further develop my networking skills and work-life balance. When it comes to encouraging women in leadership roles, have confidence in your ability to deliver and embrace the qualities that make you unique.
Tania Board, Project Engineer WA
Work-Life Balance is promised and delivered at Schindler. I have a great degree of control and freedom within my job. I am trusted to produce high-quality work and results, with a flexible schedule as I have kids. I therefore work hard to maintain that level of trust.
