Work type: Graduate - IGO
Location: Perth

We believe in a world where people power makes amazing things happen. Where technology opens up new horizons and clean energy makes the planet a better place for every generation to come.  We have big aspirations to explore, develop, produce and partner to achieve our strategy to become a globally relevant, premium producer of energy storage and distribution minerals.

We are focused on operational excellence at our 100% owned Nova nickel-copper-cobalt operation in the Fraser Range, with a world class underground mining and processing team producing nickel, copper and cobalt – commodities that are significant in the world’s drive for clean energy. Exploration and discovery is core to the delivery of our growth strategy and our world class geoscience team is actively pursuing brownfield and belt scale greenfield exploration programs in Western Australia and the Northern Territory to discover the minerals critical to energy storage and distribution. We are IGO and we are here to make a difference.

Choosing to start your career with IGO means joining a proudly Australian company that is large enough to provide you with the opportunities you need to make an impact but small enough to provide the support and care you’ll love.

We are excited to offer a 2021/22 Vacation program in Metallurgy.

IGO is committed to capabilities development and succession planning for undergraduate students. Our 12 week Vacation programs are supported by structured training and mentoring. It is our aim to provide vacation students with exposure to all levels of our operations to enable future career opportunities, either within IGO or within the resource sector.

Working as part of a team in various disciplines, the successful applicants will undertake a variety of work and professional development. Successful applicants will be employed at our IGO Nova Operation.

Safety and Wellbeing
Our people’s safety and wellbeing is extremely important to us. Vacation students will be required to join with all of our people to demonstrate a positive and personal commitment to Occupational Health and Safety.
