The Role

BMT is pleased to announce the Vacation Program for 2018/2019.

Open to 3rd and 4th Year Civil and Environmental Engineering, Environmental Science, Ecology and Environmental Management Students, the Program offers 12 weeks paid vacation work at our Sydney or Newcastle office and a one-off payment of $1,000.

The program will commence during the 2018/2019 University summer break and, depending on the candidate, may continue throughout the University holidays of 2019.

The program offers the opportunity for high achieving and enthusiastic tertiary students to implement theoretical knowledge in a practical “hands-on” environment.

The Individual

To help us determine the most suitable candidate for this opportunity, we ask applicants to select one climate change challenge Australia will face, with respect to the BMT business lines/technical services listed above, and present a potential solution that may mitigate/manage/adapt (or even benefit) from the challenge selected.

You can present your brief findings any way you wish- in a poster, short essay (2 pages maximum), video, LinkedIn article … use your imagination!
