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 and 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 

Technology is a global function within BHP which provides Interns a unique experience. You’ll get an opportunity to work across many aspects of Digital Transformation including cybersecurity, operational technology, automation control systems and enterprise level systems. The Technology strategy also enables Interns to gain excellent experience with key growth technologies like Cloud and our Data strategy.    

 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 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:  

  • Computer Science
  • Data Science
  • Cybersecurity
  • Maths and Statistics 

International students who have a valid visa with no work restrictions for the duration of the internship program are eligible to apply.

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.
