Our Graduates


Christina Bruno – Civil Engineer

I can honestly say that Tonkin has delivered not only a challenging, diverse and interesting career but also provided a workplace where I have the opportunity to grow, both professionally and personally. I have found the culture to be welcoming, supportive and positive. I am lucky enough to have worked on some exciting projects in urban and rural areas across Australia. My passion for working rurally was acknowledged with an opportunity to relocate to Darwin and work on projects within the Northern Territory. Since relocating I have broadened my skillset and been exposed to many new challenges and opportunities. I am thankful for the support and encouragement I was provided throughout the relocation process, which has made my transition to a new team and environment smooth and stress-free.

Jackson March – Civil Engineer

Tonkin has a great working environment with plenty of opportunity. I have been exposed to projects from all major engineering disciplines in both the design and construction phases. Tonkin is a uniquely sized business which accommodates both small single discipline projects and large multidisciplinary projects, this results in a great variety of projects and experiences. There is a great support network of senior engineers here who are very approachable and willing to share their knowledge.

Jonathon Williams – Civil Engineer

I didn’t realise before starting at Tonkin, that the projects we work on have a huge impact on people’s lives. Having spent a significant amount of time working with, and in, regional communities, it is great to know that what you are doing is helping to grow and develop communities and their infrastructure. One of the best things about working at Tonkin is the variety of projects I have been exposed to. I have been able to learn about so many different aspects of what we do and develop a diverse range of skills.
