Our Internship Program

Woodside


Shape your career

Our summer vacation programs are a chance for us to get to know you, and for you to apply your growing knowledge to our business.

We’ve been recruiting and developing students and graduates for more than 30 years, and we’re proud to be rated as a top-ten employer by the Australian Association of Graduate Employers. We recognise the value of connecting with students earlier in their studies.

We look for innovators and passionate problem solvers from wide range of degrees. Try our new tool to match your degree with our graduate disciplines, and find the best fit for you.

Our Summer Vacation Program

Our program runs full-time for 12 weeks (4 weeks for Accounting students), and we offer:

  • Extensive on-the-job training, where we pay you for real, meaningful work 
  • Early consideration for our 2021 Graduate Development Program, so you can line up a job before you complete your studies
  • Access to a vibrant community of students and recent graduates. You'll have a dedicated current graduate as a go-to support person while you're on the program
  • Active employee community groups for gender equality, reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, and LGBTI+ staff and allies.

We aim for a smooth transition to Woodside's Graduate Development Program, which plays an important role in building our long-term technical and leadership capabilities.

For this program, we encourage applications from both domestic and international students in their penultimate year of study.

Our Indigenous Summer Vacation Program

Woodside is proud to participate in the Indigenous Advancement Strategy. As such, we provide work placements to eligible candidates through our Indigenous Summer Vacation Program and this plays an important role in building our long-term technical and leadership capabilities.

  • Early consideration for our 2021 Graduate Development Program, so you can line up a job before you complete your studies

For this program, we encourage applications from students who identify as an Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander and are accepted as such by the community in which they live, or have lived. You can be in any year of study in an undergraduate or postgraduate degree and, if you're enrolled full-time, you may eligible for additional funding.
