Sugar giant, Wilmar Sugar Australia is seeking five engineering graduates to work across its four Queensland milling regions from next year.
Training and development manager Scott Young described it as a great opportunity for people about to finish their degree in electrical, civil or mechanical engineering to kick-start their career.
“Graduates take the theory they’ve learnt throughout their degree and apply it to $4 billion of raw sugar milling assets,” he said.
Assistant production superintendent Blair Aspinall said the experience and exposure she had gained through Wilmar’s graduate program had been invaluable.
“I started with Wilmar in 2015 after graduating as a chemical engineer from the University of Queensland, and I would highly recommend Wilmar’s graduate program to any other final-year engineering students,” Ms Aspinall said.
“It is a fantastic opportunity, where one person organises and guides the graduates through everything during the program.
“Senior managers were always touching base to see how we were doing and how they could help. The mentoring has been amazing.”
Ms Aspinall said she had been given opportunities she may not have received in other graduate programs and was now the Assistant Production Superintendent at Wilmar’s Kalamia Mill in the Burdekin.
Mr Young said the company was seeking three electrical engineering graduates, one mechanical and one civil engineering graduate for next year’s intake.
Applications close on September 30.
