We have an exciting opportunity for a Graduate Economist to join our Melbourne Strategic Advisory team for an ASAP/2021 start. Your tasks could include researching economic literature, conducting data analysis, writing reports for a range of ANZ projects and/or undertaking a range of commonly encountered professional services to support our Water Advisory Team to develop proposals and deliver projects.

From gaining hands-on experience to participating in networking events and structured learning sessions, you’ll find new and inventive ways to help our clients make the world a better place. 

We see graduates as the future leaders of our business, which is why we’re delighted to have received the Australian Financial Review’s Top 100 Graduate Employers award for ‘Most Popular Engineering & Resources Employer’ in 2021!

It’s the extra roles and committees outside of project work that I treasure most and that makes me feel included. Roles such as being the lead of the First Nations Committee; this role allows me to embrace my culture and heritage within the business and gives me the confidence to bring the complete ‘Nick’ to work every day.
