At BHP, our purpose is to bring people and resources together to build a better world. Why not you?

What we offer our Graduates:

  • An attractive salary package, plus a performance-based bonus
  • Employee share program and great employee discounts
  • An ongoing commitment to your well-being
  • A permanent position, with the foundations for a strong future career path 
  • Relocation costs, if applicable
  • An inclusive and diverse workforce 

About the Role 

Our award-winning, industry-leading graduate program is looking for graduates who will challenge us, as we will challenge them. You’ll complete structured course work, learn on-the-job, rotate into different teams, and contribute to business and technical projects. 

As a BHP Graduate, your 24-month program is a balanced approach to building your technical and professional capabilities through a structured program. When you start, you’ll be given a buddy who will show you the ropes and gain access to our mentor program to help shape your career.

As BHP Graduate, you will:

  • Rotate into different teams 2-4 times
  • Work alongside industry leaders
  • Collaborate on projects across multiple disciplines
  • Contribute to improvement initiatives
  • Attend technical forums where you will hear inspiring presentations, participate in activities focused on expanding your technical knowledge and networking with other graduates.

What we are looking for:

We are looking for people just like you to help produce essential resources for the energy transition, development of infrastructure, and a better world - both now and in the future. 

You will have already graduated in 2022 or 2023 or be eligible for graduation by the end of 2024. Your degree could be from one of the following (but not limited) to:

  • Engineering: Mining, Mechanical, Mechatronics, Electrical, Mine Geotechnical, Civil, Metallurgy / Minerals Processing, Chemical, Construction Management, Instrumentation Control and Automation, Structural, Quantity Surveying
  • Science: Earth Science / Geology, Hydrogeology, Environmental, Chemistry, Spatial Science (Surveying), GIS
  • Health Science: Safety, Health, Nursing, Paramedical Science
  • Technology: Computer Science, Data Science, Cybersecurity, Maths and Statistics
  • Business: Commerce. Finance, Accounting, Law, Economics

As our graduate opportunities for engineering and science are residentially based near our mining operations or require you to work on a Fly-In-Fly-Out (FIFO) roster, it is important that you’ll be willing to consider either of these arrangements to undertake a grad role. Roles such as Technology and Commercial will support our operations from our city locations, but they are never far from the action.

International students who have a valid visa with no work restrictions are eligible to apply.

About Our Process 

At BHP, we are committed to employing individuals who align with the BHP Charter Values and meet the requirements of the role. As part of the recruitment process, there are a number of checks which may be conducted to demonstrate applicants suitability for a role including police / criminal background checks, medical, drug and alcohol testing, due diligence checks, right to work checks, and/or reference checks. 

Supporting a Diverse Workforce 

At BHP, we recognise that we are strengthened by diversity. We are committed to providing a work environment in which everyone is included, treated fairly and with respect. We are an Equal Opportunity employer and we encourage applications from women and Indigenous people. We know there are many aspects of our employees' lives that are important, and work is only one of these, so we offer benefits to enable your work to fit with your life. These benefits include flexible working options, a generous paid parental leave policy, other extended leave entitlements and parent rooms.
