Are you inquisitive? Fearless? Engaging? Resourceful? Co-creative? Commercial? A sense maker or an unconventional thinker? These are the attributes we are looking for, so come and join us in our journey where innovating thought is the key to our future business success.

Profiles required for our 2020 Early Talent Pathways

  • Professional Pathways – Finance, commerce, economics and business majors
  • Technical Graduates – Engineering (civil, mechanical and electrical) and Data Analyst degrees

The Essential Energy Early Talent Pathways program is designed to grow a pipeline of early talent into future leaders and technical experts.

Graduate Program Framework

Over the course of the three-year program you will participate in rotational placements across a number of business units dependant on your area of study. Graduate Engineers will focus on developing their professional abilities and technical skills within the Asset Management and Engineering Division, while the Professional Pathways employees will be placed within the Corporate functions. Both will be challenged with tasks and projects relating to your university studies and chosen career path. You will work closely with key stakeholders to provide high quality outcomes to support our operational activities in regional NSW.

During the course of the program Essential Energy will also provide ongoing developmental opportunities to support and broaden your knowledge base and develop business acumen. This includes participation in an 18-month program delivered by Engineering Education Australia that has been carefully developed to give graduates a professional head start, strengthening core business skills and values that will transform you into future leaders.
