Fortescue is among the top 100 graduate employers in Australia


Our graduates have the chance to grow their skills and business acumen during a two year structured graduate program. You will undertake a number of rotations that will give you exposure to a range of working environments aimed at encouraging a holistic way of thinking about the business.

The focus of our program is on building both technical and core business skills through practical experience and formal training. Throughout the program we offer meaningful work in a combination of fly-in fly-out (FIFO), residential, and head office environments.

You will receive ongoing training and development and, be mentored by one of our leaders. Our graduates have a strong network so that you can share experiences, learn from each other and develop contacts that will last your whole career.

We’re looking for passionate graduates who will step up to the challenge and be part of our innovative and achievement driven organisation. Our graduates are treated like professionals from day one. We want you to set stretch targets, come up with innovations, and help us become one of the world’s greatest resource companies.

Successful applicants for our graduate and vacation programs will possess the personal attributes of determination, enthusiasm, and integrity, ability to think outside the square and to have a go. You should also be organised, responsible and conscientious. Given Fortescue’s complex operating environment, a high level of resilience, flexibility and the ability to manage change will also be of great advantage.
