About Metro

We operate and maintain Melbourne’s Metropolitan train network. Successfully transporting over 400,000 passengers per day is achieved by our large dedicated workforce. With multiple large projects being completed, we continually work hand-in-hand with all external businesses involved to ensure that new assets comply with the standards we set.

Our dedicated Rolling Stock Team upgrade, service and maintain all three existing train fleets that service the Melbourne Metropolitan Rail Network. Keeping this service running is only a small part of the process. In addition to maintaining the fleet, we also look to make improvements to the technology and extend the life of these vital assets.

The Position

STM = Suburban Train Maintainer
Location = Westall

Reporting to the Production Coordinator and working within a team of experienced maintainers you will first learn the tasks required to perform when maintaining a train. Though you will be a qualified electrician, there are many jobs that are required to be completed that will not always fit your trade knowledge. Duties include (but not limited to):

  • Test and repair electrical circuits
  • Service electrical components, including air-conditioning units
  • Examine and complete maintenance tasks within your level of competency
  • Assist with other team members to ensure that all tasks are completed before the train is returned to service


We appreciate that you may not be experienced in maintaining train equipment and do not seek this as a requirement. We will require you to be a qualified Electrician and have experience in maintenance duties. Our fleet of trains are powered by a high voltage DC network including control circuits so any experience in these areas would be desirable.


  • Learn and develop skills that are crucial to keeping our trains moving our customers around Melbourne
  • All Metro Employees receive a free Myki pass that allows free Public Transport in Victoria
