Graduate Program

Kickstart your way into a fulfilling and productive career. Our Graduate Program is a two-way commitment to an exciting career. Our 2 year custom-built program of training, job-rotation and mentoring creates well-rounded professionals who are confident in their expertise and valuable to our clients.

Program Benefits

Is this program right for me?

  • Are you a recent graduate or 3rd year university student with training in engineering, town planning or surveying?
  • Does collaboration, problem-solving and technical development match your career aspirations?
  • Are you team-oriented with a ‘can-do’ attitude and a thirst to learn from industry experts?

“It starts with understanding our business, our systems and knowing our people. We want our young talent to be confident in their work environment. We develop a personalised career plan with training and mentors to complement workplace experience. The rotation through different roles is an exciting part of deciding where to take a new career. We support accreditation to professional associations and building a network amongst peers. Flexibility in the program is important all the way through.”

The culture of a company is defined by every single one of its members. We each have a right, therefore, to support it and be supported by it. As a team we are unique: enthusiastic, knowledgeable, respectful and inclusive. And we understand that ‘fun’ is as important to business success as ‘hard work’.

We have grand ambition, yet we recognise the need to support each other’s individual ambitions too. Sustainable growth will come from leveraging our strengths and ensuring diversity in every respect, from our people, to our clients, to our day-to-day. It is our reputation that will drive both new business and new talent to our doors.

The team that builds together succeeds together. It’s that simple. Teamwork is our keystone; it holds every other thing in place. It is a philosophy that requires integrity and accountability, and never mediocrity. It will allow us to adapt to any challenge and meet the future with an unmatched enthusiasm and expertise.
