Applications now open for Whitehaven’s 2020 graduate intake

Applications are now open for Whitehaven Coal’s two-year Graduate Program for graduates with Engineering degrees including Mining, Electrical, and Mechanical, and Mechatronics looking to commence in February 2020.

As a Whitehaven graduate, you’ll get the opportunity to work at one of Australia’s fastest-growing and most exciting mining companies, developing your technical skills and knowledge of the various business functions in a supportive, team-based environment. You’ll work with some of Australia’s leading industry experts on the practical application of the skills you have learned at university, and be encouraged to learn, ask questions and be involved in day-to-day operations as part of a team that values respect, diversity, creativity and results.

Our graduates gain exposure to either underground or open cut mining in the Narrabri & Gunnedah areas in North West NSW, and often rotate between different mine sites, depending on business needs and current projects.

“It’s a great culture to work in. Everybody is approachable and prepared to help,” says Oliver Matthews, a first-year Graduate Mechanical Engineer at Narrabri underground mine.

We’re committed to the longevity of our employees’ careers and upon successful completion of the program, and where a position exists, we will transition our Graduates into permanent employees.

We look for Graduates who are passionate, motivated and adaptable with a keen interest in learning new skills and stepping out of their comfort zones. Find more information about our program here.

Applications are open until April and available here.
