Carmichael Project delivers opportunities for graduates

Adani and the CQUniversity have launched a new graduate program to train the future generations of Australia’s mining industry. 

Adani Mining CEO Lucas Dow said the program would provide jobs for six graduates and preference would be given to Central Queensland and North Queensland residents. 

“This program builds on Adani’s commitment to providing jobs and opportunities for regional Queenslanders. 

“We remain on track to deliver more than 1,500 direct and a further 6,750 indirect jobs during ramp up and construction of our project,” Mr Dow said. 

“I started my career as a Mining Engineer and have benefitted greatly from the opportunities the mining industry has afforded me and my family. 

“Our first Graduate Engineer intake is unique in that successful candidates will be given the opportunity to work across both the construction and operational phases of our project, which is rare in the current resources environment. 

“I would strongly encourage anyone looking for an exciting and rewarding career in the resources sector to apply.” 

Delivered over 18 months, graduates will be placed with senior engineering team members within the Carmichael Mine and Rail project team and will also undertake onsite learning with CQUniversity. 

The program is open to engineering graduates, up to two years post-graduation. In 2020, the positions are open to: 

  • Mining Engineers 
  • Civil Engineers 
  • Mechanical Engineers 
  • Electrical Engineers 

CQUniversity Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Nick Klomp said he was pleased to see the impact the program will have on graduates, and the communities of regional Australia. “As Australia’s largest regional university with a defined focus on delivering world-class education, training and research, CQUniversity is well-placed to drive significant outcomes for graduates and their communities,” Professor Klomp said. “We are known for our leadership and commitment to working directly with our industries to design and deliver training and education that strengthens and builds capacity, and supports the fulfillment of our communities’ potential. “Through this partnership with Adani, CQUniversity will continue to drive this commitment to fulfil the current and future needs of regional Australia.” 

Graduates will be required to operate on the program including time working on-site as well as off-site training through CQUniversity. Training components will be undertaken at the University’s Rockhampton or Mackay campuses, or via Zoom (COVID-19 restrictions depending).
