Our Graduate Development Program is designed to open up a world of possibilities for you. You’ll get to work on ground-breaking projects, enjoy quality mentoring from top professionals, and be exposed to all sorts of challenges with individually-tailored support to ensure you succeed.
Rotate through variety of projects to help develop both technical and behavioural skills. The program is competency based and therefore the time it takes to complete it will depend on skills and effort put in and the way they learn.
Our two-year program will consist of six components:
1. Orientation program
The Wood journey begins with a three-month orientation program, which includes:
- first day induction
- corporate induction (company information, HR, HSE)
- project/function inductions to understand how functions and projects work together
- probationary review and objective setting discussion
2. Graduate short-course program
Our Graduate Development Programme includes a number of compulsory training modules delivered as workshops. Modules on offer include Interpersonal Effectiveness, Writing Winning Documents and Presentation Skills. Successful completion of these modules will lead to a Certificate 4 in Project Management.
3. Technical training
In addition to the short-course program, professional development will be supplemented by specialist technical training in areas determined by the project and/or discipline.
4. Professional development programs
Engineering graduates will have the opportunity to become a member of the Engineers Australia professional development program (PDP).
Designed to assist you become chartered, the program will provide you with support and guidance from Wood and Engineers Australia, including workshops, online support and learning materials. Engineers Australia Workshops will be held and will include information and writing sessions.
For non-engineers, we’ll provide the opportunity to achieve a relevant professional qualification.
5. Mentoring Buddies
Graduates will be matched to an experienced Wood employee who will provide advice and guidance on how to reach their full potential. Buddies will also be assigned to new graduates. Buddies usually come from our 2nd year graduates.
6. Engineer Your Future (EYF)
EYF is the name given to our graduate community. The EYF is administered by a panel consisting of management representatives and representatives from the various graduate year groups. The aim of the EYF is to assist Wood in improving the graduate program, to seek out opportunities for graduates and to promote social events,
