Developing tomorrow's leaders today

The MMG Graduate Program provides a robust foundation for future career growth by developing talent across critical disciplines ensuring we have a pipeline of both technical and people leaders to support MMG’s growth strategy.

We offer our graduates a two-year work program in which we balance on-the-job experience with a structured development program encompassing technical, safety and leadership skills. MMG graduates are given the opportunity to:

  • Gain experience at an Australian operational site, with the potential to experience additional sites through rotations or short term secondments, subject to business needs. 
  • Develop technical competency through on-the-job training, and access to MMG technical experts. 
  • Participate in the MMG My Performance program. 

At MMG, we aim to challenge our graduates to explore innovative ideas, test current practices and display technical and business acumen, actively contributing to MMG’s future.

About your career path

Graduates are supported in applying for ongoing employment at MMG operational sites.

Over time, graduates develop personal preferences that propel their careers towards an advanced technical specialisation, operations management, mining project management, consulting or a Group Office role. In many cases an individual will work across all of these areas. With one of the highest staff retention rates in the mining industry and a focus on global growth, we believe we are in an enviable position to offer our 'next generation of industry leaders' incredible future opportunities.
