Meet Max and Pippa, our Liney apprentices.

Line workers, or Liney’s are the heart of our business. Every year we welcome new apprentices to the business.

Max and Pippa joined the team due to a mutual love of the outdoors, working with their hands and tackling new challenges each day. They love being part of a team and delivering power to Victorian communities.

Say hello to Pippa!

Say hello to Max!

Role at Powercor: Fourth-Year Apprentice

Liney Superpower: Super Safety

Personality: Max is the friendliest guy you will meet, he is always up for a chat but when the job needs to get done, safety and efficiency is his focus. He believes in doing the best job you can and helping others to do the same.

Interests: Max loves his footy but is really a general sports-nut. He coaches the local under 10’s AFL team and enjoys helping out around the club. His other major passion is music – he is always the first to hit the dance floor, especially when it is time to do his ‘safety dance.’
