Broadspectrum designs, funds, constructs, operates, and maintains major projects and infrastructure assets across a diverse number of industries. With a network of more than 10,000 people across Australia and New Zealand and utilising over 60 years of experience, we provide services to vast industries, including Resources, Energy, Industrial, Infrastructure, Property, Social and Defence Sectors. Providing infinite opportunities, this role can offer a long-term and dynamic career path across a range of sectors and geographies.

We are now looking for Human Resources Graduates to join our two-year graduate program, commencing in January 2021.

A #SpectrumGrad is a future leader of Broadspectrum, whether it be as a manager or as a thought leader within your field. If you have a vision for the future and want to shape communities, bring it to life at Broadspectrum.

About the role

The #SpectrumGrad program consists of 2 x 6 month rotations and 1 x 12 month rotation, which will provide you with extensive learning and development opportunities through face-to-face and virtual training, case challenges, hackathons and more. You will have many opportunities to establish relationships with clients and senior stakeholders of the business. In addition to this, your rotations will take you out of your comfort zone by giving you the chance to work in both corporate and field-work environments. Your rotations could take you anywhere across Australia and New Zealand.

This means that there will be an expectation that you have flexibility in where your work is located throughout the duration of the program. Don’t worry though, we’ll ensure you settle in well, wherever you are!

Graduate rotations will vary depending on location, current projects and personal preference. Areas you could be working in include:

  • HR Shared Services: Spend time in our HR Service Centre to get exposure to contracts, pre-employment checks as well as HR and ER case work
  • Capability & Projects: Deliver policy reviews and improvement, work on diversity & inclusion initiatives and support talent reviews, performance & development
  • Systems: Get exposure to various HR systems including SAP and SuccessFactors, and how they support the employee lifecycle
  • Generalist: Gain generalist HR and business partnering knowledge through exposure to our business operations
  • Specialist: Have the opportunity to work in specialist areas including bids & transitions, remuneration & benefits, employee relations and recruitment

While you will be engaged as a Human Resources Graduate, we recommend for you to rotate through our different teams (Business Development, Business Improvement, Project Management) and operate outside of your discipline for one of your rotations. This ensures you have breadth in your experience and to maximise your exposure to the diversity of our business!
