Ventia is one of the largest essential services providers in Australia and New Zealand. We are proud to provide the services that keep infrastructure working for our communities. Our Service capability spans the full asset lifecycle – from design, minor capital works and operations maintenance, asset and facilities management, through to decommissioning – complemented by technology-enabled solutions. Whether it's connecting people to faster networks, remediating contaminated land, keeping traffic flowing and our hospitals and schools running, our clients never switch off – so neither do we.

We are now looking for Engineering Graduates to join our 2-year graduate program, commencing in January 2022.

About the Program

The #VentiaGrad program consists of 2 x 6-month rotations and 1 x 12-month rotation, which will provide you with extensive learning and development opportunities through face-to-face and virtual training, case challenges and more. You will have many opportunities to establish relationships with clients and senior stakeholders of the business. In addition to this, your rotations will take you out of your comfort zone by giving you the chance to work in both corporate and field-work environments.

Graduate rotations will vary depending on location, current projects and personal preference. Areas you could be working include but are not limited to:

  • People & Capability
  • Finance and Accounting
  • Procurement
  • Pre-contracts and Commercial
  • Digital Services
  • Safety, Health, Environment & Quality (SHEQ)
  • Brand, Marketing & Communications

What are we looking for?

At Ventia, we want to be known for our talented and engaged people. As a future leader of Ventia, we are looking for these qualities in our #VentiaGrad:

  • Resilience
  • Learning agility – the ability to adapt and work in many environments
  • A motivation to find innovative solutions to new challenges
  • Ability to build and maintain strong working relationships
  • A collaborative mindset

Key Requirements

To be eligible for the #VentiaGrad program, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Successfully completed relevant undergraduate degree in the last two years, or be in your final semester of study
  • Willingness to travel and relocate for the duration of the rotation
  • Hold Australian/New Zealand Citizenship or Permanent Residency

Why join our program?

This is a great opportunity to join a global organisation and develop practical skills in several areas before transitioning into a role in your area of expertise. Our graduate program could you see working as part of a construction delivery team contributing to mobilisations and shutdowns, getting exposure to how we win and negotiate work or rolling out automation and innovation project initiatives across Australia and New Zealand.

A #VentiaGrad is a future leader of Ventia, whether it be as a manager or as a leader within your field. If you have a vision for the future and want to shape communities, bring it to life at Ventia.
