Graduate Program

Fortescue offers a two-year, structured graduate program to provide participants with exposure to a site operational role, technical placements, as well as experience in a business functional role aimed at encouraging ‘whole of business’ thinking.

Our graduate program offers opportunities in a broad range of disciplines utilised across both mining and green energy.  The programs are Perth and fly-in fly-out based to ensure that operational experience is provided to broaden the career opportunities for these new employees.

Graduates receive ongoing training and development, mentoring by our leaders, and access to a strong network so they can share experiences, learn from each other, and develop connections that will last their entire career.


Fortescue’s graduate program is open to students in their final year of university or who have recently completed a relevant degree.

We are looking for passionate graduates who will step up to the challenge and be part of our innovative and driven organisation. We are also committed to building a diverse workforce and are especially keen to speak to graduates from the Pilbara region as well as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
