AS ACTIVITY in the mining sector ramps up, Aurizon have increased their intake of graduates across Central Queensland.
The rail giant is currently recruiting for eight graduate positions to be based across Mackay and Rockhampton regions in accounting, business/corporate, civil engineering and electrical engineering fields.
"Aurizon's Graduate Development Program provides an important pipeline for delivering strong and capable talent and leadership across our regions,” an Aurizon spokesperson said.
"This year Aurizon has increased the number of graduate positions based in regional Queensland as we continue to focus on bringing more of our people closer to our regional operations and in supporting our local communities.”
Mackay man Mitch Lees, who joined Aurizon through the program 10 years ago, has enjoyed a diverse career with the company from a student engineer to district civil engineer, working across regional Queensland.
"I joined Aurizon's Graduate Development Program and have been privileged to work as a Civil Engineer across Aurizon's rail design, asset management, construction and maintenance teams - gaining well-rounded engineering experience throughout all of Aurizon's rail asset lifecycle stages,” Mr Lees said.
"The program was instrumental in launching my career as an engineer and in pursuing a career with Aurizon. It enabled me to rotate through different parts of the business over a three year period, providing a valuable insight to the different types of engineering roles and careers available within the company.
"It was during my time on the program, that I developed a strong passion for railway engineering. In particular, I developed an interest and experience in railway track stability to prevent track buckles and train derailments. This has allowed me to coach others in the railway industry to make our tracks safer.
"For the last four years, I've been based in Mackay working in Aurizon's Civil Asset Management and Engineering team.”
