Electronics Engineering Work Experience Opportunity

About PAFtec
PAFtec is a small and innovative Australian company specializing in powered respirator design and
manufacture.
Established in 2009 by a world class medical device engineering team, PAFtec reinvented the respiratory
protection masks with CleanSpace series powered respirators. Different from traditional powered
air-purifying respirators (PAPRs), CleanSpace doesnt require hose or cable, is much lighter, smaller and
easier to use. As a result, CleanSpace has gained immediate recognition in the industry since its release
nearly 2 years ago, and the products are being sold in Australia and more than 20 countries around the
world.
The company is now on a growing phase to penetrate and widen the applications in the industrial market.

Summary
To anticipate the growth of the company, an opportunity exists for a recent graduate or a student in his /
her final year from a tertiary education, majoring either in Electronics or Mechatronics Engineering, to work
within the companys engineering team as a trainee engineer.
Initially, the position is for a 3 month work experience within the engineering team on a no-pay basis. At the
end of the work experience period, it is possible for the successful applicant to become a paid part-time or
full-time employee, subject to mutual benefits, job availability and the company financial status at the time.
