Mechanical engineer graduate Tyson joined Ventia’s graduate program at the start of 2020 and has completed two six-month rotations in that time. His first rotation was working in the maintenance team for Easternwell in Western Australia, including a stint in the far north-west in Newman.
“The opportunity to visit an operational site so early in my career was amazing,” Tyson says. “Being able to see how the work you’re doing impacts and benefits the teams working on the rigs was eye-opening.”
Tyson’s second assignment was in our Water business in Sydney, delivering project management on a team delivering large periodic maintenance projects for our client. He says he enjoys project management as he likes problem-solving and it plays to his strengths, which include good communication skills.
“Having a generous mentor I think has been key to my enjoyment and success on this second rotation,” Tyson says.
“Getting feedback is critical to helping you develop as a young graduate, and I have certainly learned and grown more confident in my work during this period.”
