Don’t just read it here though.
This is what our graduates have to say:
Getting your vital experience
WGE recognises that following your academic qualification the next most important goal in your academic career is achieving your chartered status.
Fast track your career
If you want to have a challenge and you want responsibility, they will give it to you’, Daniel Wojcik
WGE have a flat organisational structure and we strongly believe in giving young engineers key project responsibilities from the start of their time at the company. Many of our past graduates have moved into senior executive positions in the company – an accomplishment we are very proud of. We don’t weigh the place down with unnecessary bureaucracy; if you know what you’re doing we’ll let you do it.
If you want to advance your careers as fast as possible, definitely come to a company like Wood & Grieve who are willing to give their graduates responsibility from day one’, Matthew Palmieri
Variety of projects
The projects we deliver are vast and various. At WGE you could work on a hospital, a hotel, a stadium, an apartment tower, a university, a mining camp, an airport or the newest land subdivision. Engineers have their specialist sectors and experience and graduates are given the chance to develop their skills in the area they excel.
The chance to go interstate or work in the city
As we have offices throughout Australia there is the opportunity to take on projects in other cities. Our offices are based in the CBD’s and while there may be occasional site visits required we don’t have anyone working fly in fly out, you stay in the city and keep your life!
It’s not all hard work
Our extra curricula activities are famous and are the topic of office conversation for months afterwards. We have a rock band, a social club, regular football, soccer and cricket teams, triathlons and personal training sessions organised and plenty of characters who make the place fun.
It’s a very good culture here of wanting to help people and then also wanting to be something more’, Daniel McErlaine
