At IGO, we are committed to developing the next generation of industry leaders; which is why we place great importance on development and succession planning for undergraduates and newly graduated professionals. Our people are important to us and we are as focused on your success as you are.

When you join us, we will invest in your career and your development, to ensure you achieve your goals, now and into the future. This is the IGO difference.


Each year our Graduate Program offers outstanding university graduates a 2-3 year program starting with us in January/February with the aim of supporting you in your transition from study to career.

Our program, which is individually tailored to suit your needs, is designed to educate, challenge and reward you in a work environment that will foster and develop you into a future leader and technical expert. Graduates assume real roles with on-the-job responsibilities and work to investigate and solve real business issues. From the moment a graduate commences with IGO, we are committed to playing a part in the development of their career.

Vacation Students

The IGO Vacation Program offers both undergraduate and post graduate students the opportunity to participate in a 12-week program held over the Australian summer break - commencing in November each year with the prospect of securing a Graduate position.

We place great importance on this program as we recognise the future of our mining industry and business success depends upon supporting today’s students. That is why our paid Vacation Program introduces students from a range of disciplines to all different areas of our business to ensure critical industry experience is gained to broaden future employment opportunities. Our program is specifically designed to optimise your exposure and practical experience in your chosen discipline.

Our Graduate Stories

"The IGO Graduate Program has been my first experience of health and safety work in the mining industry and has given me a fantastic foundation for my career.

Additionally, IGO's mining of resources for battery storage technologies makes me feel proud to be part of a company that is committed to working towards a sustainable and green future."

Our Graduate Stories

"In my time with IGO as a Graduate Geologist, I have completed 18 months in Exploration Geology and six months in Mining Geology at the Nova Operation.

Both teams have been really fun to work with and I am very lucky to have spent the last two years experiencing different areas of geology.

I would highly recommend the IGO Graduate Program to others!"

Our Graduate Stories

"Before starting the IGO Graduate Program, I didn't really know what to expect as this was my first corporate role.

However, thanks to the amazing support of the Company and the team I work with, it didn't take me long to get comfortable with my role, feeling a sense of belonging and like a real member of the IGO family."
