CIMIC Group Graduate Program

Graduate Program

The CIMIC Group Graduate Program develops our future leaders, providing graduates with on-the-job training, structured learning in their discipline and exposure to a global business.Graduates make an important contribution to our business and find rewarding, long-term careers within the CIMIC Group.

In 2016 we launched the new CIMIC Group Graduate Program. Now, graduates joining our Operating Companies benefit from a global program that provides a structured learning plan over a two year period. Graduates will experience three eight-month rotations with placements in various roles, projects or operating companies within the group.

Graduates enter the program working at one of the CIMIC Group Operating Companies: CPB Contractors, Leighton Asia, Thiess, Sedgman or EIC Activities. Over the course of the program rotations and industry exposure activities are also available at CIMIC and Pacific Partnerships.
