To help build a better world, we need the best and brightest. 

Why not you? 

At BHP, our purpose is to bring people and resources together to build a better world.  We have the resources. What we produce is essential to carbon reduction and the technologies essential to secure prosperity for generations to come. 

But we need more good people. Not just anyone, but the best and brightest students from every field of academic and technical endeavour. Students who will challenge us, as we will challenge them.  

If you join us, the opportunities are endless; because you will not only help build a better world, you will help shape it. Someone has to do it. Why not you? 

About the Role 

As BHP Intern, you will:  

  • Be able to apply all you’ve learnt in real world situations and use your initiative to seek out projects to showcase your capability. 
  • Work in diverse teams who will support, encourage, and help you build your technical skills. 
  • Gain exposure to the resources sector at an early stage of your career. 
  • Build your own professional network with a range of technical experts and graduates. 
  • Attend networking events with other interns and graduates. 

As a successful intern you’ll get first access to our Australian Graduate Program opportunities or be invited back for another internship if you are in the earlier years of your degree.     

What we are looking for 

You’ll be a student who is between their second to penultimate year and will be able to work with us for 10-12 weeks over the summer break.  

Your degree could be from one of the following (but not limited) to: 

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

As our graduate opportunities for engineering and science are residentially based near our mining operations or will 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 Finance will support our operations from our city locations, but they are never far from the action. 

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.  

Providing employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is an important part of our 2017–2020 Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). For more information about our RAP, please visit our website.   

The filling of these positions is intended to constitute a special/equal opportunity measure undersection 8(1) of the Racial Discrimination Act 1975 (Cth),and 27 of the Discrimination Act 1991 (ACT)  / s 57 of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1996 (NT) / s 105 of the Anti-Discrimination Act1991 (Qld) / s 65 of the Equal Opportunity Act 1984 (SA) / ss 25 and/or 26 of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1998 (Tas)/ s 12 of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic) and s 8(4) of the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act2006 (Vic) / s 51 of the Equal Opportunity Act 1984 (WA)].s 126 of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977(NSW) / s 8and 51of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977(NSW).
