At Transurban we keep cities moving

About us

For over 20 years, Transurban has been building, maintaining, enhancing, and operating roads that make a difference to how people connect and commute. From our first asset – Melbourne’s CityLink – to owning and operating 21 assets across Australia and North America, we have grown from strength to strength.

But we are more than a toll road company.

We make a difference. Our ideas shape cities, boost economies and redefine landscapes. With 80% of jobs located in cities and congestion set to cost tens of billions dollars more in the next 20 years, what we do matters. The decisions we make, strategies we set and the networks we plan today will benefit our neighbours, friends and families tomorrow.

Transurban is a Top 20 ASX listed organisation with a market capitalisation of close to $40 billion. We are at the intersection of marrying traditional infrastructure with emerging technology, engineering and customer solutions to bring people and places together, faster, smarter and safer. And we are a values-led organisation. We are committed to demonstrating integrity, collaboration, accountability, ingenuity and respect in everything we do. These values drive us to pursue our purpose: Strengthening communities through transport.

About our graduate program

As a Transurban Graduate, you will be part of a first-class experience where your contribution will matter. You will be encouraged to share your ideas and expertise – to create better ways of working, thinking, building and doing. Our current and previous graduates have been impressed by opportunities to work across different parts of our business, make a real impact, take ownership for decisions and contribute in meaningful ways.

Our two-year rotational program based out of Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane is designed to provide breadth across the organisation, whilst developing critical skills in core disciplines. For 2022, these include Engineering, Technology and Corporate Finance/Treasury (VIC only). You will be supported by buddies and mentors, have access to senior leaders and technical specialists, together with a program of formal learning to strengthen your leadership skills.

You could be working on projects such as using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning alongside our data to create personalised experiences for our customers, or The Burnley Tunnel lighting improvement project – making tunnel driving a safer and more engaging experience.

  • Next steps and process

    We strive to offer an efficient and positive recruitment experience. If your motivations and skills line up to what you’ve read, please apply! Please contact our Graduate Recruitment Team at graduates@transurban.com if you require additional assistance with our application process. We know it takes time to tailor a job application and we promise to respond to each applicant.


    Step 1: Apply online (Late April 2021)

    Submit your online application. We will review your suitability based on the role requirements and academic experience. Please note, we can only accept students in their final year of study, and those with full working rights. Please note, applications close 11.59pm AEST Sunday 9th May 2021.

    Step 2: Psychometric testing (Mid May)

    Complete online assessments. These will examine your abilities and preferences when working with others, across changing conditions and with different types of information. Instructions and practice questions will be provided in advance.

    Step 3: Video interview (Late May)

    Participate in a one-way video assessment. You will record your answers to several set questions. This stage is designed for you to showcase your strengths, motivations and alignment to our core values.

    Steps 4 & 5: Presentation and Interview (July to suit exam schedule)

    The next step is to invite you to one of our offices for some interactive, practical activities. This is designed to give you a hands-on feel for typical work tasks and may involve other members of the broader Transurban team. Types of activities may include a presentation and interview. In the presentation we may look at how you interact with others to solve a business problem, your process for follow up and what reflections you had. In the interview we will ask some structured behavioural based questions aligned to the graduate role requirements.

    Step 6: Reference checks (July)

    We will contact your nominated contacts to obtain their perspectives on your preferred working style and ideal environment.

    Step 7: Offer (July)

    By this stage, we should have a good idea of what you can bring to the role, and for you, what it’s like to be involved in our Graduate program. If everything is in order, we will get in touch to offer you a place on our program. Once you say yes, we’ll carry out all the relevant background checks (Police Checks and Right to Work) and get you on board.

    Step 8: Onboarding commences

    We will send specific information once our offer has been accepted. In general, prior to your first day, you’ll be welcomed by your team and meet up with your manager. You’ll also get a facilities induction, so you know where everything is. Then, later in your first month, you’ll get a full corporate induction and your official graduate experience will commence.
