How do I apply?
We will not be offering Graduate employment opportunities during 2016 for university students to commence in 2016 or 2017.
There are several steps in the Graduate recruitment process and, when available, recruitment for Graduate opportunities would be advertised annually in March/April for commencement either mid-year or January the following year.
We do thank you for your interest and encourage you to check back in for details closer to next year's advertising period.
The recruitment process
There are several steps in the graduate recruitment process, as detailed below.
Step 1: Application form
Complete an online application and attach an up-to-date CV and latest academic transcript. Applications will only be accepted during the specified recruitment period.
Step 2: Unsupervised online testing
If your application is chosen to continue in the process, you'll be invited to undertake an online aptitude test and a behavioural profile assessment, which you can complete in your own time at home or anywhere else you choose. Testing will usually include:
- Verbal - understanding, interpretation and evaluation of written information
- Numerical - understanding, interpretation and evaluation of data information
- Diagrammatic - analysis of diagrams, sequences and transformations
- Behavioural profile assessment
Results will be kept confidential, and will not be provided to applicants once completed.
Step 3: Video interview
A short video interview, which you can complete in your own time at home or anywhere else you choose. This video interview will be a confirmation of details from your application, as well as motivational fit and behavioural-based interview questions.
Step 4: Attend an assessment centre
The next stage in the process, for those who are successful after a video interview, is to attend an assessment centre in Brisbane, Rockhampton or Townsville (depending on application numbers for each location).
The day will run from approximately 10am to 3pm. During this time you will undertake team and individual activities which will help us assess your suitability for the program. We will provide you with information about the program and Ergon Energy engineering functions, as well as plenty of opportunities to meet and talk to current Ergon Energy graduates and managers.
Step 5: Ergon Energy panel interview
You will be contacted by email or telephone to attend a panel interview in Brisbane, Rockhampton or Townsville. The panel will have representatives from our Graduate Program who you would likely have met at the assessment centre, and a recruiting manager.
Interview questions will usually be behaviour-based and your responses should include relevant examples which outline demonstrated ability and/or experience.
Step 6: Reference checks / QualSearch
You will be asked to confirm names and contact details of two referees who can tell us about your academic and/or work performance and experience, as part of your initial application. With your permission, we will speak to these people about your performance as it relates to the Graduate Program.
Additionally, a formal QualSearch will be carried out to confirm your academic details, eg university attended, degree type, estimated completion date.
Step 7: Offer of employment
If you are chosen as a successful graduate, we will make you an offer verbally and in writing, confirming your start date for either a mid-year intake start in August or annual intake start in January.
