At Transurban, we are driven by bringing people and places closer. At its heart, Transurban is about connecting people. Together, we're building a future that marries traditional infrastructure with emerging technology. We're making roads ready for driverless cars and predicting accidents before they happen. We're getting people where they're going, and we're doing it faster, smarter and safer.

We are committed to demonstrating integrity, collaboration, accountability, ingenuity, and respect in everything we do. It's what our clients and communities - hold in high regards, and what we are proud of in ourselves. These values support us in the pursuit of our vision: To strengthen communities through transport.

We are advocates of gender diversity and have many initiatives in place to support our commitment to building a truly diverse workforce. One key initiative is our 'Females Excelling in Engineering and Technology (FEET)' program, where we engage with female engineering and technology University students, offering the opportunity to gain some mentoring and insight into a STEM career. This is a great way to get your FEET in the door and kick-start your career!

About the program:

Transurban's Females Excelling in Engineering and Technology mentoring program (FEET) is designed to offer a unique mentoring experience to curious, driven and passionate female students. Opportunities for unpaid mentoring are available in Victoria, Queensland, and New South Wales. This as an exciting opportunity to position yourself as an ideal candidate for opportunities within Transurban, including casual employment or the Transurban Graduate Program.

Whichever part of Transurban you join, you will gain exposure to senior team members and industry specialists. You'll be working with some of the best in the business! We might be influencing the future of road travel globally, but we're a supportive and collaborative company at heart. Your mentor and wider team will always be happy to answer questions, provide advice and share their experiences with you.

We don't believe in a one-size-fits-all program, so we'll work together to schedule in 10 business days over a three-month period, starting in January 2023, that work specifically for you. You'll get a taste for working in a large organisation through one-on-one mentoring with some amazing exposure and learnings that will help set you up for future success as you complete your degree.
