Work Experience and Internships

Would you like to gain valuable experience working with the most successful name in Australian-produced underground mining equipment and add a well-respected reference to your resume?

Elphinstone provides internships for undergraduate students over the summer university break (December to February) in the fields of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical & Electronic Engineering and Project Management.

Your time with us will see you using your skills in real-life situations, and give you access to experts in your field.

We also offer work experience to secondary school students from February through to November, with placements available in Fabrication, Assembly, Logistics and Warehousing, and Finance and Administration.

Elphinstone will provide you with a better understanding of our industry and our business, and help you choose your future career.

For Students and Parents

If interested in Work Experience please speak with your school coordinator. We will always endeavour to accommodate the selected dates (ensuring at least 1-month notice is given), but unfortunately, this may not be possible in some instances. We will work with your school on an alternative if this can be arranged.

Prior to starting you will need to complete (along with your parents and your school) any relevant paperwork and the online learning modules that will be sent to the email address you provide.

For Schools

  • Adequate timeframe - Elphinstone requires a minimum of 1 month's notice for all Work Experience (Work Placement) requests. Noting there is no guarantee on dates but we will definitely try and work a solution if the student's dates are unavailable.
  • Paperwork - All paperwork must be signed by the student, parents & the school before placement can be confirmed.
  • Insurance - To be placed in the Elphinstone Work Experience Program, students must be covered by the school's liability insurance. All schools are required to provide evidence of adequate insurance coverage before placement can be undertaken.
