You will need to be highly self-driven to seek out projects to showcase your capability. Our most talented interns will get access to graduate opportunities before we go to the market. Do well as an intern and you will go to the front of the queue to receive a job offer. What a great way to start you career!


You will start in June 2021 joining a global cohort of like-minded graduates who will work on real business problems. As a permanent employee you will start on our global Graduate Program where you will get unprecedented access to senior leaders to mentor and guide your course work.

Our fast paced 24 month program will accelerate your career giving you access to opportunities across commodities and regions. Towards the end of the program the choice is yours to stay in the same commodity or find an opportunity elsewhere in BHP to demonstrate all that you have learnt.
