At GHD, we don’t just believe in the power of commitment, we live and breathe it every day. 

If you want to start a career with impact, whether solving everyday problems through to tackling some of the great challenges our clients and communities face, you’ll find that here.  That’s why we pledge to empower all our people to make a positive impact and ensure you’re provided the necessary training and experiences to make those aspirations a reality.

We know community impact is important to our staff.  Our GHD in the Community program partners with not-for-profit organisations to provide opportunities to work on pro-bono projects, volunteering and fundraising for philanthropic and humanitarian causes.  As a business we also funnel some of our profits into the GHD Foundation, a registered charity that works to address disadvantage and inequality in children accessing STEAM education in our countries of operation.

What does being an Intern mean for you?

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

An internship isn’t just about networking though.  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.   

Towards the end of your internship, you’ll participate in our performance & experience review process and if you’re heading into your final year of studies, conversations about an offer to join our graduate program for the following year.  If you’re earlier in your course, we can discuss ongoing opportunities and future internships throughout your studies.

Want to know more about life as a Consultant in GHD before applying?

GHD, in partnership with The Forage, a global provider of job simulations, have developed a self-paced Virtual Internship where you’ll start to explore what a career in our Engineering teams looks like.  You’ll hear from one of the Leaders in our Rail team who’ll outline some of the topics we cover, as well as talking you through a bit more of what we do in GHD. 

The Virtual Internship should only take you 3-4 hours to complete   We’re not asking you to undertake complex calculations, but rather understand some of the challenge we work with on a day to day basis.
