About BHP

To help build a better world, we need the best and brightest.

Why not you?

At BHP, our purpose is to bring people and resources together to build a better world. We have the resources. What we produce is essential to carbon reduction and the technologies essential to secure prosperity for generations to come.

But we need more good people. Not just anyone, but the best and brightest students from engineering and science. Someone has to do it. Why not you!

About the Internship

As a first-year university student who is studying either an Engineering or Science degree, you are becoming curious about where your degree could take you. You may not have thought about joining the resources sector, but BHP has introduced a first-year intern program that will give you a unique opportunity to explore a world of career possibilities.

BHP’s “Resourcing Your Future - First Year Intern Program” is designed with you in mind. You’ll gain an understanding of how BHP is helping to build a better world through responsible mining of the commodities the world needs and how technology is being embraced to build a safer and more efficient workplace. You will learn about Mining Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Geoscience and Geomatics which will provide you with insights into a range of careers that are on offer.

During the 6 week program over the Summer break, you will hear from BHP team members who will share their technical and professional insights, as well as learning about BHP as an organisation. You will also have the opportunity to visit our operations in central QLD, WA and SA A key highlight of the program is that you will collaborate with other interns on an Environmental or Social Value project and present your business case to a panel of leaders. You will be given an opportunity to connect with a mentor to guide and support you throughout your degree. If you perform well and develop an interest in the mining industry you will be eligible for a second placement in November 2023.

Come along to the information session and hear more about BHP's recruitment process and their amazing opportunity.

If you are an engineering student, you might be able to claim Type B hours (under Category 8) for attending this event. See the activity table for full details.
