Our Award Winning Graduate Programme
We're inspired by the challenge to create a better future. The purpose of our award-winning graduate programme is to develop Aotearoa’s future leaders.
Our programme has recently evolved into a pathway which supports our young professionals through the first five years of their development. This pathway is designed to expose our graduates to a variety of opportunities within the contracting landscape and aid them towards becoming chartered engineers. During this time, we aim to develop well-rounded, highly skilled professionals by exposing you to the wider business before you specialise in one area.
Within a graduate role at Downer, you will have the opportunity to learn how to manage contracts, programmes, manage risk and budgets, supervise civil works/road maintenance and design. You'll develop core competencies across the areas of people management, delegation, negotiation, time management and presentation skills - and that's just the start of it!
The programme is open to students who have completed a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Civil, Mechanical or Electrical Engineering. Intakes for the graduate programme occur annually and applications can be found on our website.
Applications for our 2024 Graduate Campaign open on March 20th 2023!
