2021/22 - Summer Vacation Student - Geotechnical Engineering - Immediate Start

Newmont Mining Corporation is one of the world’s largest gold producers with assets on four continents including operations in Western Australia and  the Northern Territory. Founded in 1921 Newmont is the only gold company included in the S&P 500 Index and Fortune 500 and was the first gold company selected to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index.

Regional site support is provided through Newmont Australia's Perth team which is located in modern offices in Subiaco.

Newmont’s future success relies heavily on today’s students. That’s why our paid vacation program provides a well-rounded hands-on experience for those studying for their career in mining.

Spending a summer as a Newmont vacation student is a one-of-a-kind experience that will leave you with a deeper understanding of the mining industry, newfound friendships and a glimpse of what a career with Newmont is like. You’ll help us solve problems while gaining practical work experience and get your hands dirty.

Our Boddington vacation students have the option of living locally in Boddington or stay in our Accommodation Village on a Drive In/Out roster. Tanami vacation students have the option of Fly In/Out from Perth, Darwin, Alice Springs or Brisbane.

The Newmont Vacation Employment Program yields many riches. That’s why many of our vacation students return for a second year. Do well in the summer and you could be fast tracked into a full-time Graduate position in our structured 2-year Graduate Development Program.

Key features of the Vacation Employment Program:

  • Maximum 12 weeks’ work experience at our Australian Operations;
  • Hands-on responsibilities with possibility of project work;
  • Opportunity to fast track into Newmont Australia’s Graduate Development Program.

If you are in your penultimate year, possess strong academic performance, a record of personal achievements and a genuine interest in working in the mining sector, we encourage you to apply. A small number of roles are open for students not in their penultimate year.
