Graduate Program overview

[Each of the graduates introductes themselves]

How was the recruitment process

Cameron (Civil Engineering):

It was a really quick process and it was really good. We were informed all the way through what stage we were at, what the next phase would be.

Lucinda (Environmental Engineering):

For the engineers, we had to submit our resume and academic history. Then, answer 12 situation based questions and then we had to answer three to five automatically video questions and then finally there was the group interview with about 10 other participants.

Why did you choose Metro Tunnel?

Veronica (Land, Planning & Environment):

After studying the history of cities and planning opportunities, it's kind of a dream to get to work on one of the biggest projects in Victoria's history. And hopefully that will improve the quality of life.

Lee (Electrical Engineering):

This new infrastructure project is going to help shape Melbourne into becoming a world-leading city. And I think to be involved in a project of that scale is just really exciting.

Annie (Communications & Stakeholder Relations):

It appealed to me because I've lived in Melbourne all my life and I'm driven to see a change in the future of the city.

Nicki (Human Resources):

It's a massive thing for Melbourne. It's the equivalent of the London Underground and I wanted to be part of something that left a legacy for city. And that was this project.

Stephanie (Law):

MMRA's Graduate Program offers a really unique opportunity to work on a major project. It really was the best fit for me.

Cameron (Civil Engineering):

I guess as a civil engineer, I've always wanted to work on on big projects and given that this is the biggest project in town, it was just exactly what I was after.

Ramona (Civil Engineering):

I was really drawn to the complexity of the project and was excited for the opportunity to join at the early stages.

Viv (Engineering):

Melbourne is in desperate need for better rail and the project that we're delivering will expand the City Loop capacity.

Lucinda (Environmental Engineering):

That is key in allowing Melbourne to stay as the most livable city in the world.

This is an iconic Melbourne project and to start my career on this project would be an amazing foundation and I couldn't picture a better way to start my career.

What do you hope to get out of the Graduate Program?

James (Civil Engineering):

I just want some direction of where to go in my career. I really want to use this grad opportunity to try as many different things that I can, work out what I liked, what I didn't like, probably what I was good at and then, you know, follow into that direction afterwards.

Cameron (Civil Engineering):

My goals coming into the program were obviously to develop my skills and experience in the industry and on the project. But as well as that, I guess to get a better idea of where I want to go in my career and that's why I really appreciate the opportunity to rotate through different areas of the organisation.

Veronica (Land, Planning & Environment):

I feel like I've already learned so much in just 4, 5 months and I've also gotten to meet such interesting and inspiring people who are so passionate and committed to this project, which is really exciting and it makes you excited to come into work everyday and see what's going to happen next.
