Apprentice Electrician


Who are we

Electralife is Melbourne's leading smart home automation and latest tech specialist. We supply, install, commission and service premium new tech products that enhance our customer's homes, lifestyle, and businesses.

At Electralife we're all about the latest, the smartest and the best. That applies to our products, our work and our people. We love automation, smart systems, energy saving and sustainability. Our work is all about building the smartest homes in Victoria, with the best people. People who are passionate about their work and about the latest developments in home automation and about being an integral part of a great team. We aim to never do average in anything.

We specialise in smart homes and businesses: including automation, data cabling, alarm systems, CCTV, audio visual and cinemas.

Our staff receive a variety of work every day and training to suit. All our staff have the utmost respect for our clients, their properties and each other.

Our office and display suite in Moorabbin serves as our meeting point where we discuss the tasks for the day, provide product training, and general catch-up space.

In addition to the skills and experience you bring to Electralife as an electrician, you will be comprehensively trained in the installation and commissioning of the best smart home products:

  • Smart lighting systems (C-Bus, KNX)

  • Multi-room audio systems

  • Security alarms and CCTV

  • IP networks, internet (IoT) products

  • Whole home automation

  • HVAC control

  • Solar power and Battery Systems


About the position

As a home automation technician, you'll be responsible for making sure your customers' houses are smarter than they are. That means installing, maintaining, and troubleshooting all sorts of fancy gadgets and gizmos, like lights that turn on by themselves, thermostats that know when you're coming home, and speakers that play music in every room.

But it's not all fun and games, you'll also need to deal with the occasional client that can't figure out how to turn off the lights they just turned on, or how to un-mute the TV. But don't worry, that's why you're the expert! Strong technical skills and a good sense of humour are a must for this job, and a willingness to wear a tool belt and climb ladders is a huge plus!

Working for Electralife means you will be given lots of opportunities to produce your best work to develop further in your profession and to feel proud of what you achieve. At the same time we expect you to work to time-frames and budgets. You will be a skilled, reliable tradesperson, able to work independently and able to make decisions about what the job before you needs most at any one time.

Toward completion of the project, you will work closely with the client in tailoring their home automation system to meet their needs and help to deliver their fully intuitive dream home.
