Publish date

KBR has launched its summer internship campaign, offering 60 roles at its sites around Australia. 

KBR supports the nation’s economic prosperity, energy transition and national security and currently has 2000 people delivering major defence and infrastructure projects across Australia. 

KBR People and Culture Director, Christine Gillon said, “Internships are an important part of our recruitment strategy and the roles on offer provide university students with the chance to try a range of workplace experiences ahead of completing their studies. 

“Many of our interns continue with us as graduates because they love the variety of work we do and the opportunities they have for career development in Australia in both critical infrastructure and defence, and also as they progress, within our global business.”

Graduate Josh Wurfel is just 12 weeks into his engineering career with KBR. The 23-year-old Adelaide University structural engineering graduate and an alumni of KBR’s annual summer internship program, is already putting his own stamp on infrastructure, buildings and roadwork projects around South Australia and interstate.  

“I am learning a lot and really appreciate the opportunity to contribute, even if in a small way at this stage, to the larger projects the team is working on. It’s great being part of a larger company and I enjoy having a variety of projects to work on.”
