Graduate Civil Engineer, Port Macquarie

 Join a global professional services leader.

We are committed to solving the world’s biggest challenges in the areas of water, energy, and urbanisation.

The GHD team, based in Port Macquarie, is looking for an undergraduate Civil Engineer, with a passion for the Roads or Water sector more broadly, and keen to forge their career in this multidisciplinary and dynamic team.  You’ll have the opportunity to work on a variety of local projects seeking to safeguard the future of water across the region, whilst being connected with a global business with over 10,000 professionals.

You’ll find yourself working on real world projects once you start across the broader project lifecycle; from Strategy and planning, through to concept and detail design.  As your career grows, you’ll also gain exposure seeing some of your projects through into the construction phase, as well as the opportunity to develop skills in Project & Design Management.

Working with a blend of remote and office-based work, you’ll be based out of our Port Macquarie office whose office environment includes a strong supportive culture – you’re sure to find your tribe once you start.     

What will you do in the role?

  • Water and wastewater network planning & modelling
  • Civil & Hydraulic design of water & wastewater treatment plants
  • Concept and detailed design of roads
  • Assisting in writing and submission of tenders & proposals
  • Connect in with a wider team of professionals to share insights, knowledge and improve your overall technical capabilities

We’re looking for someone who:

  • Has recently graduated, or will graduate with a degree in Civil Engineering
  • Is passionate about the Water/Transport industry
  • Strong communication skills

What we offer:

Outside of the technical development you’ll gain working within the team, you’ll also join GHD’s Graduate Development Program.  Our learning will provide you with an integrated two-year, holistic experience as we start to develop our future leaders and technical experts. Every GHD Graduate across the globe is included in the program, so no matter where your career may take you, you’ll all start with the same learning experience.

During the two-year program, you will learn about our business and our values, your team and most importantly, yourself. You will develop your decision-making, communication, technical and important leadership skills. We offer personal mentoring and a variety of development activities, including opportunities to work in our regional offices.
