  • Participate in development and implementation of engineering strategies to support business goals across gas, renewables and thermal generation plants
  • Participate in all required training and mentoring provided as part of the graduate program, and undertake all tasks and duties of the program, including rotation of teams and sites to provide the most comprehensive learning experience

About You

What you'll bring to the table:

  • Recently completed a degree in Engineering (electrical, mechanical, civil & chemical preferred, though we consider others)
  • A strong desire to develop a career within the power generation industry
  • Safety as a core value and an understanding of operational site safety requirements
  • Strong planning and organisation skills
  • Excellent communication skills
  • A continued desire to learn and work in new environments and with different teams and equipment
  • Must be able to travel and participate in the rotations across various states

This role will commence in January 2022, however for Graduates with a mid-year university completion, we will consider a July 2021 or flexible commencement date.
