The Orica Graduate Program is integrated into most areas of our business. Each stream has different rotation opportunities within it and, in some cases, graduates rotate among streams.
The Technical Blast Services stream is for graduates looking to develop a career in Drill and Blast with the world’s largest provider of commercial explosives.
Receive all the training you need to work with explosives, work on-bench and on projects providing blast design and blast-based services to our customers. You will rotate across different markets and geographies, with the opportunity to experience a broad range of mining methods, sites and projects.
In this stream you will learn Drill and Blast from the best and have real accountability for your own projects. You won’t be bored and the projects just keep getting bigger.
The Mining Field Operations stream gives you hands-on experience in explosives delivery for our customers. Working in the field, Operations make our services happen for our customers at each of their sites.
As an Operations graduate you will learn first-hand how we deliver our services through hands-on experience at different sites. With this knowledge you will then have opportunity to lead and contribute to both large and small scale improvement and efficiency projects. You’ll also work with Operations superintendents to manage multiple stakeholders, projects and activities to ultimately deliver safe, efficient blast services for our customers.
Through this stream, you learn the core of our business.
The General Engineering stream gives you a diverse range of experience as a graduate engineer.
Opportunities are plentiful. As a graduate in this stream, typical rotations include:
- on site manufacturing engineering roles for real time problem solving experience and capital expenditure projects
- research and development roles to contribute to the development of next generation blasting systems
- projects for design of new sites and upgrades.
Jump right in and make an impact. You will be amazed at the responsibility you get from your first year in the program.
Commercial / IT
The Commercial stream gives you experience in multiple areas of our organisation with a business focus.
Rotations could include commercial pricing, market analysis, IT, Finance, and our Corporate Affairs and Social Responsibility function. If you have an analytical nature with good communication skills, Orica has a number of business areas for your development.
Join this global business to contribute to and lead projects of varying size and scale.
The Supply stream gives you exposure to end-to-end supply in a complex and geographically challenging network. This is a growing function at Orica and key to the success of our business. Over three rotations, you will take on different roles to build your skills in a global chain team.
Typical rotations could include but are not limited to distribution, planning, analyst roles or even procurement.
