“Bradken is on a growth journey and to get us where we need to go we need people who are talented and inquisitive, confident and courageous to join our team and grow with us,” Andrew said.
“We believe the fresh perspectives and expectations, unique ideas and up-to-date knowledge that graduates bring into our business will help move us in the right direction – towards a better and more sustainable future.
“It’s a mutual exchange where we help each other succeed and grow. We’re committed to providing meaningful exposure to what our global business has to offer including on-the-job training, mentoring and cross-functional projects that help develop their skills in line with their professional aspirations.”
Over the years Bradken people have had the benefit of interacting with many outstanding graduates and other team members in their early career and some remain with us today making valuable contributions to our day-to-day operations and key strategic projects.
