To join us as an Intern, we will be considering students from second through to penultimate year and you will need to be available to start in November 2021 working with us for 10-12 weeks. This is the time to apply all you have learnt in real life situations and use your initiative to seek out projects to showcase your capability. Do well as an intern and you can be invited back for a graduate role, or another intern position if you are still studying.

Our Australian intern opportunities for engineering and science will be residential or Fly-In-Fly-Out (FIFO), either way giving you the chance to support and live in a thriving local community. Roles such as Technology, Finance and Supply will support our operations from our city locations, but they are never far from the action.

We are an Equal Opportunity employer and we encourage applications from women, people with a disability, and Indigenous people.
