WGE is committed to recruiting the best talented graduates and providing them with training and development for them to progress into exceptional, well rounded consulting engineers.
We believe in having a forward thinking, dynamic and knowledgeable team of employees that draws on a depth of experience, from a long culture of delivering unrivalled service.
As a WGE Graduate, you will be offered an opportunity to be part of the Talent Development Program. This is an internal program for our graduates that will assist you in gaining all the technical competencies as outlined by Engineers Australia, in order to achieve your CPEng. You will have the opportunity to develop your technical and interpersonal skill through a mentoring relationship with an experienced engineer.
This relationship will support the implementation of a personal development plan, where you will be given direction, be assessed and continually challenged as you set your goals and strategies and ensure a sharp focus is maintained on developing all your technical and professional competencies.
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.
We are involved in delivering a diverse range of projects, and working at WGE you will get the opportunity to be involved in some of the most iconic projects in the country.
You could work on a hospital, hotel, stadium, university, a mining camp, airport or the newest land subdivision.
You will have the opportunity to work in multi-discipline project teams, whilst honing your technical capabilities within your specialist section.
As we have offices throughout Australia there is the opportunity to take on projects in other cities.
Our offices are based in the CBD, and while there may be occasional site visits required we don’t have anyone working fly in fly out.
We have modern office environments, and a range of extra-curricular activities for our staff to get involved in.
We have an active social club, regular football, soccer and cricket team games, triathlons and personal training sessions.
WGE often has openings for undergraduate students looking to gain work experience during the semester breaks. This is an excellent opportunity to gain practical experience in your chosen profession and insight into what your career will really be like. Many students enjoy their experience with us and often choose to work at WGE after graduating.
When opportunities for vacation work are available, they are posted on the WGE job board.
Our HR team, and Engineers also attend university career fairs around the country. It’s a great opportunity for you to come and meet the team, and find out more about a career at WGE.
