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 graduates from every field of academic and technical endeavour. Graduates 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!

Graduate Program

You’ll complete structured course work, learn on-the-job and contribute to business and technical projects.  Working with the latest technologies, you’ll collaborate on projects across multiple disciplines and be supported and coached to deliver successful business outcomes. It’s a challenging program but by its conclusion, you’ll have made a genuine impact on the business. 

Disciplines and locations

You could be studying from a range of degrees that include (but are not limited) to:

  • Mining, Mine Geotechnical, Civil, Spatial Science / Survey, Geographical Information Systems

Our Australian graduate opportunities for engineering and science will be residential or Fly-In-Fly-Out (FIFO), either way giving you the chance to support and live in a thriving local community.  Roles such as Technology will support our operations from our city locations, but they are never far from the action.
