2023 Graduate Program

Suburban Rail Loop – Graduate program

More than a graduate program – join SRLA in 2023

Start your career on the right track with Suburban Rail Loop – Victoria's biggest ever transport infrastructure investment. The Suburban Rail Loop Authority (SRLA) Graduate Program is an exciting, challenging, and rewarding opportunity to learn from industry experts and contribute to shaping a better future for our growing city and state.

SRL is more than a rail line - it's a project that will enhance communities across our middle suburbs through better connections as well as more housing, business and job opportunities. People will have more pride in where they live, and everyone will benefit from how much easier they can move around Melbourne and by having more jobs and services closer to home.

As graduates, you'll be contributing to achieving those far reaching outcomes, whatever your role!

During the program you will develop a wide range of skills and gain valuable industry experience as you rotate through project teams within your area of interest. Positions are available across a range of disciplines including engineering, communications, urban design and planning, architecture, legal and more.

As well as offering learning and development opportunities, the program also provides mentoring and networking to kickstart your career in transport.
