The start of something bigger

At Monadelphous, we’re more than just an employer, our people say we’re like family. That’s why joining Monadelphous as a student or graduate is the start of something much bigger. Across our workforce, you will find stories of people who took an opportunity to make a difference with us and built a career and lifetime friendships as a result. Our Graduate or Vacation Program is often the first step on that journey.

Being a Monadelphous student or graduate means you’ll have the opportunity to experience a variety of projects, possibly in some of Australia’s most beautiful locations. By the end of the program, you will have a clear understanding of the different career avenues available to you. You will grow personally and professionally, be encouraged to help shape the future of our business, and become a potential future leader of our business.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for team players with a mindset of ‘Giving it a Go’ and the desire to make the most of all experiences and relationships – because this is what will set you up to succeed in your career with us!

We are looking for students and graduates completing degrees in:


  • Engineering
  • Construction Management
  • Health, Safety & Environment
  • Accounting & Finance
  • Human Resources

Since you are at the start of your professional journey and are yet to fully explore the different paths you can take, we don’t expect you to have all the answers right away. However, you must have a desire to work on and manage major resources projects. 

We embrace the benefits of working with talented people from varied backgrounds, fostering diversity in our workplace. If you’re interested in applying for our Graduate or Vacation Program, sign up for updates and we’ll keep you posted.

Senior Project Engineer


I wanted to be the sort of engineer who was practical and hands on. I love talking and interacting with people, so I didn’t want to get stuck behind a computer all day or stuck in a research laboratory. Read full story

Senior Project Engineer


I really like being on site and engaging with customers and front-line trades staff as part of the engineering team. I don’t really like to be confined to an office and would rather be out on the job.Read full story
