GRADUATES

Each year the IGO Graduate Program offers outstanding university graduates a 2-3 year program starting with the aim of supporting them in their transition from study to career.

Our program is designed to focus on the needs of the individual and to educate, challenge and reward graduates in a work environment that will foster and develop them into future leaders and technical experts. Graduates assume real roles with real on-the-job responsibilities and work to investigate and solve real business issues. From the moment a graduate commences with IGO, we are committed to playing a part in the development of their career.

VACATION STUDENTS

The IGO Vacation Program offers both undergraduate and post graduate students the opportunity to participate in a 12-week program held over the summer break commencing in November each year with the prospect of securing a Graduate position. We place great importance in our Vacation Program as we recognise the future of our mining industry and business success depends upon supporting today's students. That's why our paid Vacation Program introduces students across different disciplines to a range of work functions to ensure critical industry experience is gained by them to broaden the student's future employment opportunities. Our program is specifically designed to optimise students' exposure and practical experience in their chosen discipline.

Find out what some of our recent graduate and vacation students have to say about their experience at IGO!
Catherine Woodall
Geology

"I have thoroughly enjoyed the IGO Vacation Program. Throughout the program I had the opportunity to apply what I have been learning in my studies, as well as gain practical hands-on experience and insights into the everyday work of an exploration geologist.

One of the best parts of the experience has been the team I've worked with, whose dedication to their work has only been outweighed by the fun they have while doing it.

I would recommend IGO's Vacation Program to any university student looking to gain experience with a company that is supportive and dynamic."

Jonathan Meade
Mining Engineering

"The IGO Vacation Program has allowed me to experience the specific roles and responsibilities of a mining engineer that I thought I wouldn't get to experience until I graduated. Getting exposure to the planning and scheduling department allowed me to learn new skills and programs, like creating a short-term schedule for the mine and building data analytic models for underground equipment used at Nova.

It was also a great opportunity to explore and learn about many of the other roles on a mine site because everyone here is approachable and passionate about the work they do.

I would highly recommend a vacation work placement before graduating. If not for anything else, to gain new skills and knowledge that will help with classes and make an all-round, better engineer."

Emily West
Geology

"The IGO vacation program has given me valuable hands-on experience and mining industry insight.

I have had the opportunity to learn from industry professionals who are passionate and approachable. The working environment at IGO is supportive and diverse.

I recommend the IGO vacation program to students seeking practical experience at a company with a difference."
