Applications for our 2022 graduate intake are now open for Sydney & Melbourne. 

Johnstaff is seeking final year students within Building & Construction, Project Management & Civil Engineering who are wanting to kickstart their career within the industry.

Our Graduate program runs for 12 months with two 6-month rotations in Project Management and Construction. This means that our graduates gain hands-on, client-side experience on a wide variety of projects and initiatives at all stages of their planning, construction and operation. Graduates work in office-based Project and/or Construction roles, or site-based Construction roles.

The program is designed so that graduates get real exposure to the client-side across multiple industries - including Health, Education, Research, Aged Care, Justice, Transport, Commercial, Retail and Pharmaceutical sectors. This includes learning how to: 

  • deliver the best investment outcomes for clients
  • deliver the best value outcomes - whether that's savings, efficiencies, speed of completion or social benefits
  • identify and solve business problems
  • minimise risk, and
  • make sure that the systems and infrastructure we design work when they're used.

The program includes structured learning outcomes focused on: 

  • Project Administration
  • Cost Management
  • Project Procurement
  • Programming
  • Construction Knowledge
  • Site Coordination
  • Tendering, and
  • Contract Administration.

In support of the program, all graduates will have a dedicated buddy, and work within a team-orientated culture and supportive environment. Importantly, we offer our graduates permanent positions from day one.
