Orica 2021 Graduate Program


Every day, all around the world, the people of Orica help mobilise vital resources essential to progress and prosperity. Resources that make energy, transport and infrastructure, modern electronics and new technologies that billions of people rely on.

Our story began back in 1874, when we supplied explosives to gold fields in Australia.

Since then we’ve grown to become the global leader in mining and civil blasting. Providing world-class products and services to extract minerals safely, efficiently and responsibly.

We are truly a global company, with 11,500 employees around the world. Our community of engineers, scientists, technologists, business specialists, operators and on-site crew, support customers in more than 100 countries.

Backed by our global supply chain and manufacturing footprint, we’re there for our customers when they need us, no matter where they are.

But we’re not standing still. We’re looking to the future and reimagining the way we work.

Innovation is allowing us to think differently and operate even more precisely. From digital technologies that help connect, monitor and track, to advancements in blast automation. All working to make blasts more predictable, more productive and much safer.

By harnessing next generation technologies, we can create meaningful impact not only for our customers, but for the communities where we work. To help address environmental and social challenges – a responsibility we proudly embrace.

Underneath it all, it’s the thoughtfulness and curiosity of our people – every one of them – who make the difference.

Which is where you come in.


We’re helping shape the future of our industry and we’re looking for the next generation of graduates who will play an important role in helping us reach our vision.
