GHD Summer Internship 2021 – GHD Advisory

Join a global professional services leader. We are committed to solving the world’s biggest challenges in the areas of water, energy and urbanisation.

Our Advisory business is a little different to our core Engineering teams.  The work we do shapes strategic policy, helps clients unlock commercial value from their current & prospective investments, and leverages Big Data to run dynamic simulations for maintenance performance, logistics & financial performance, as well as a bespoke team who do something similar for behavioural dynamics & people movement.  If you’re looking to get a taste of what a career in these areas may be like, keep on reading!
As an undergraduate in GHD, you will be provided with practical, on the job experience within a technical field aligned to your studies and where possible, to your aspirational career path.  You will also have opportunities to build your networks and learn from and work with some of GHD’s best and brightest professionals.  

Where possible, you'll have the opportunity to connect with our recent graduates and our broader Young Professionals and Women in GHD networks to learn from their experiences to help decide whether GHD is the right place to start your graduate career.  

To help facilitate transitions into our Graduate program, our internship experience is designed for students in their penultimate, or second-to-last year of studies, however, is open to students from earlier years as well.
