Calls recorded for quality assurance & training purposes: Please note that all calls made or received by the electricianXchange team will be recorded for quality assurance / training purposes. If you do not want the call to be recorded, please let us know.
Service: Our overriding objective is to allow a free, open, current, transparent labour market place for pre-dominantly the electrican trade (but other electrical workers also can use this as necessary) with electricianXchange as the introductory vehicle through which the two stakeholders, employer & jobseeker (permanent, sub-contract or casual) come together without going through a labour hire company or a jobs board negotiating directly on dates, rates, conditions.
In the interests of maintaining an active Service, should a jobseeker or an employer not respond within a reasonable time, to a reach out by either party to the other, electricianXchange has the obligation to cancel the approach on your behalf replying on your behalf - this being in the interests of having an active current market place for talent. Additionally no contact details such as name, contact number, email address, web site addresses are allowed in the free chats. If this is found to be done, electricianXchange may upon finding out unsubscribe the employer / jobseeker who does that.
The platform provides a range of services, which requires log on access.
A person (who could be an A-Grade Electrician, an Electrical Apprentice or a person with an Electrical background) may register as an individual subscriber on the site & create their work availability profile, for the purposes of finding work whether the work needed is of a permanent, sub-contract or casual capacity. Upon registration, you will have a secure log on access including a password nominated by you.
This will be a registered Electrical Contracting Company (REC) or a company capable of hiring A Grade Electricians / Electrical Apprentices / Electrical Workers. Employer Subscribers (herein called "employer") will require an employer account. A log on as an employer, will allow the employer to search for jobseekers whether these are on a permanent, sub-contract or casual capacity through the "Want Staff" option on the site.

We advise that you may not copy or display for redistribution to third parties or for commercial purposes any portion of this site without express permission, unless that information has been specifically provided and directly posted by you as an individual or by you on behalf your Company.
Jobseeker: Jobseeker means an electrician, electrical apprentice or electrical worker looking for work, whether as an individual or as an employee of a company looking to be sub-contracted out.
Labour Hire Licensing Legislation
In Victoria and in some other States such as Queensland within Australia there is a Labour Licensing legislation introduced which lays specific conditions under which staff / labour can be sub-contracted out.
Each employer must takes its own advice as to whether this legislation applies to them.
electricianXchange takes no responsibility in relation to this, given it is merely the introduction platform through which a willing employer and a willing jobseeker come together for the purposes of working together.
Reference checks undertaken
Every jobseeker whether as an individual or as an employee being sub-contracted out by an employer, and whether in a permanent, sub-contract, casual or part time capacity agree to have reference checks completed before employment commences.
By agreeing to these Terms & Conditions, the jobseeker of every variation as outlined above, gives permission to electricianXchange and its staff or those instructed by electricianXchange's staff to undertake the reference checks on the jobseeker's behalf and to contact the referees listed within the jobseeker's account profile to conduct the reference checks. The questions posed by the reference checkers can be located here and you agree to this reference checking as an integral part of the electricianXchange process.
Employers must ask electricianXchange to initiate the reference checking process. As electricianxchange is an introductory platform, the employer & the jobseeker after introduction may decide not to go ahead (upon which a credit note on request is issued). This is the reason why reference checks are not automatically initiated & will need to be requested by the employer to electricianXchange. For our credit note policy, please see our Costs & Guarantees section.
We derive our information from individuals or employers who register on our site.
While we will take all care; responsibility rests with the individuals or the employer registering and posting the information at all times. This includes information about the work availability posts made on the website, the replies made back and forth between the employer and the jobseeker plus all other information entered into the website by either the jobseeker or the employer. electricianXchange is acting merely as the introduction platform through which these two stakeholders, the employer and the jobseeker come together, with the specific terms and conditions of hire determined seperately and independantly between the employer and the jobseeker after the introduction by electricianXchange has been made.
In using the web site, you warrant that the content, material or information that you post or upload to the website will not be fraudulent, defamatory and will not infringe the intellectual property rights, confidentiality rights, or privacy rights of any person or any applicable law.
Where the content, material or information on this website or any linked website contains opinions or judgments of third parties, we do not purport to endorse the contents of that opinion or advice, nor the accuracy or reliability of that opinion or advice.
electricianXchange will after the introduction of the two stakeholders (employer and jobseeker) provide a set of reference checks as a starting point, not as a final determination of quality of either party. electricianXchange cannot be held responsible for the reference checks done with the employer and the jobseeker being responsible for their own independant checks, before commencing work together.
Termination of Access
Access to this Website to either the employer or the jobseeker may be terminated at any time by us without notice if the terms & conditions or the philosophy this site has been put together for, is not followed.
Changes to Terms and Conditions
We may change these terms and conditions at any time. Each time you use the Service you are agreeing to the terms and conditions applicable at that time. We provide a link to these Terms and Conditions at the bottom of every page of the website. You agree to the terms and conditions as applicable at any time.
The laws of Australia apply to these Terms and Conditions. Any dispute with electricianXchange arising in relation to these Terms and Conditions will be resolved in accordance with Australian law with the jurisdiction of New South Wales prevailing.
From time to time, despite our best intentions and processes, illegitimate claims of being a qualified electrician, apprentice or REC / Employer may be entered by either of these parties. While electricianXchange will do everything it can, to provide a platform which allows work related connectivity between employer & jobseeker, it cannot totally eliminate the possibility that despite the best intent, will not happen.
electricianXchange will endeavour to ensure that all information is accurate and that is why we have a reference checking component after introductions are made. However, we cannot completely eliminate this risk.
Hence after introductions by electricianXchange, it is your responsibility to undertake your own reference & other checks formulating a written, defined labour / employment agreement between both parties - employer & jobseeker.
Should after the introduction fee being paid and our reference checks completed, you find within 48 hours of the person starting work, information which would cause you to change your mind regarding working with each other, you are entitled to ask electricianXchange for a Credit Note for the fee paid to electricianXchange as an employer, which you can then use for a subsequent search by you through electricianXchange. For 1st year apprentices (given few technical skills to assess on) we will extend the credit note policy for up to 4 weeks after the individual starts work. To review our Costs & Guarantees section in more details please click here.
You can do this via your account directly or call us on 1300 353 364 and we can guide you on how to request for it.
Besides this credit note issued to be able to select someone else, you agree that electricianXchange is not liable for any other payment or damages.
