Student Technical Experience Programme (STEP)

Job No.:707028
Division: Group Mining & Technology
Site: Corporate Centre London
Department: Exploration
Work type: Student Vacation Work
Location: London

Am I eligible?
We offer summer vacation work placements to selected undergraduates studying geology and/or a geosciences subject in European Universities. During their STEP placements students are offered the opportunity to work on real life projects and in order to ensure that both parties benefit the most from the experience, only applications from 3rd and 4th years students will be considered.

A typical placement
Placements are usually eight to twelve weeks long and take place between June and September. They are typically available in mining operations or exploration sites in Africa, South America, Asia-Australia, Canada and Northern Europe.

Where can I go?
Where you get to go on your work placement varies from year to year and depends on the projects and opportunities available in our business. Recent placements have included Australia, Canada, Chile, Peru and Finland.

Practical help
If you are selected for STEP, you'll need an up-to-date passport and you'll need to apply for your own work visa, but our HR team in London can help with this.
We'll pay your travel costs to your placement and the sponsoring business unit will arrange accommodation and provide reasonable living expenses in line with your host country.

Taking part in STEP opens doors and lets you see what it is like working for one of the world's leading mining companies.

Here are just some of the ways you could benefit:
• work on a real project in a real workplace
• gain insight into the practical applications of your degree
• spend two to three months working in a new environment
• meet new people from across our truly international workforce
• experience a new culture, even learn a new language
• increase your career prospects with valuable work experience for your CV.
