Keeping cities moving

As one of the world’s leading toll road operators, everything we do – from designing and building new roads to researching new vehicle and road safety technology – is about getting people where they want to go, as quickly and safely as possible.

Our ideas shape cities, boost economies and redefine landscapes. As our cities’ populations grow, we’re busy creating transport solutions (roads, tunnels, bike paths and more) that will deliver social and economic benefits to these cities for decades to come.

At Transurban, the journey starts with you

Your contributions at Transurban will matter. From day one, you’ll be encouraged to share your ideas and apply your expertise to create better ways of working, building, and doing. You’ll explore different business areas where your advice will count, your responsibilities will be real and your decisions will have impact.

And you won't just be stuck in an office all day, either. You’ll be out among it, seeing some of our cities’ biggest projects up close. Experience what it's like to be inside a tunnel, beneath a bridge, in our Habitat Filter, or go straight to where all the action happens – inside our Traffic Control Room. 

Your buddies and mentors will be there to guide and support you, while our senior leaders, technical specialists and formal learning paths will help you hone your leadership skills.

    Step 1: Apply online

    Submit your online application. We’ll review your suitability based on the role requirements and your academic experience.  

    Step 2: Psychometric testing

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. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions about the program and what it’s like to work at Transurban.
