Our Graduate Programme

Rio Tinto

How do our graduates impact millions of lives? At Rio Tinto, your hard work, dedication and outside-the-box thinking will help deliver the materials behind human progress. Like the copper for wind turbines. The iron in our skyscrapers. And the borates for crops that feed the world. Experience a challenging, flexible and rewarding career that takes you places: from big cities to breathtaking, remote landscapes. How will your story begin?

We employ graduates across our global business and look for curious and creative minds who want to bring different perspectives into our company. Here, you can work in a number of different roles, locations and areas of our business.

We work in some of the most remote, beautiful places in the world – like the Northwest Territories in Canada and Weipa in Far North Queensland, Australia – as well as in major metropolitan hubs like Montreal, Perth, Brisbane and Singapore.

You can work in exploration, looking to discover the next mineral source, or use data analytics to improve productivity. You can work in cyber security and mine geology, or with our logistics team, helping to get products to our customers faster and more reliably. You can help plan our mine infrastructure, or with our HR team, to make sure the right people are in the right place at the right time. The possibilities are endless.
