Jemena is on the look-out for graduates who want to join Australia’s energy sector and shape the country’s transition to a low-carbon future.

Launching its 2021 Graduate Program today, Jemena’s executive general manager of people, safety and legal, Jodie Blake, said Jemena is on the hunt for graduates who have a keen interest in energy, are great communicators, and possess strong analytical abilities.

“Our program is the perfect launch pad for graduates to kick-start their careers, and will challenge participants to tackle real world-problems and take ownership of projects that will shape how we deliver energy reliably, affordably, and sustainably to Australian homes and businesses right across Australia’s east coast,” Ms Blake said.
