Experience is everything. At Leed we have programs that provide a range of placement experience, allowing us to contribute to the construction industry by investing in our future workforce.
Our graduate program focuses on providing the experience to complement the learning completed through institutional environments. The opportunity to learn in a hands-on environment aims to produce valuable engineering graduates who are confident decision makers. We provide opportunities to work with dedicated teams in both formal and non-formal training settings. Our goal is to promote positive relationships with our network of employees, clients and stakeholders.
We are proud of the successful Graduates who have progressed through the business, and now hold senior roles at Leed.
Leed offers undergraduate students a hands-on work experience placement.
Students are provided with opportunities to visit project sites and gain experience in water treatment plants, water storage reservoirs, tanks and dams, bulk and detailed earthworks, structural concrete and road works.
Partnering with Universities, Leed also offers a six-month work placement enabling students to apply the skills gained at university to the workplace and consolidate their learning. It provides students the opportunity to gain a greater depth of work experience and enough time to produce tangible examples of completed works for their cv’s and portfolios.
During this program the students will:
- Implement meaningful and structured projects
- Translate the skills, knowledge and theory gained at university into professional practice
- Contribute to the solution of organisational problems
- Consolidate their project planning and management skills
- Advance their professional skills, including communication, time management and teamwork.

"The Leed Graduate Program has provided me with a means of applying the theoretical knowledge gained from university studies. The avenues of communication and collaboration with experienced personnel within Leed have accelerated my learning and taught me valuable lessons, both theoretically and practically. Exposure to many aspects of the civil industry has allowed me to find my areas of interest in order to progress my career path."
