Applications for next year’s graduate program are open now. Want to learn more about the program? Over to Ippy, one of this year’s graduates, to give you the inside scoop on what it’s like being a grad in the MDBA.
Think you need to have completed a science degree to work as a graduate at the MDBA? Think again! Yes, we have experts in a range of environmental sciences, but we also have staff who are trained in everything from socioeconomic studies and communications to hydrological modelling and engineering.
The MDBA graduate program is made up of three rotations spread over one year. This means that you’ll get a real taste of what the MDBA does. Whether it’s helping to coordinate how the Basin Plan is implemented, developing environmental watering policies, chatting with people in Basin communities about their views and experiences, discovering the world of river operations and environmental works, or learning more about Indigenous cultural flows, you’ll be busy!
The MDBA also gives you a major project to work on – this will give you the opportunity to research core areas of the business and make recommendations for future policies.
