Glencore has extended its 2021 graduate development program to increase the number of intakes hailing from regional Australia.
With a focus on local talent from regional communities, Glencore’s two-year graduate program combines professional development with on-the-job experience and mentoring.
Glencore offers graduates from the program job opportunities across its coal, copper and zinc operations in Australia, including fly in, fly out (FIFO) and residential positions.
“This year, over 100 new graduates have already joined Glencore, bringing our current total of graduates to more than 220,” said Jodie Hope, regional human resources lead for Glencore Australia.
Mayah Cvetic, a graduate human resources business partner with Mount Isa Mines’ zinc-lead George Fisher Mine, said the program was really important for regional Australia.
“The Glencore graduate development program is really important for regional Australia as it provides opportunities to come back home after university, just like I did, to work in my chosen field,” Cvetic said.
Glencore is offering graduate opportunities across multiple disciplines, including engineering, environmental science, geology and geophysics to information systems and IT, accounting, community relations, human resources, and occupational health and safety.
“We’re looking for bright, curious and confident people across many disciplines,” Hope said.
Applications for the 2021 graduate program close at midnight on April 19.
