Graduates & Interns

Graduates: Make your future

You know what you want. You want to build a solid, successful career. This means starting out with the best possible foundation, one that has strength and stability.

At Fletcher Building, we’ve had our roots firmly in New Zealand for over 100 years. Today, we operate across New Zealand and Australia and our business spans the entire building supply chain. And for over 100 years, our people have been at the heart of our business.

Your Fletcher Building journey begins with our Graduate Development Programme.

Our one year development programme is purpose-designed to set you up for the future. With a focus on professional development, you’ll learn about Fletcher Building and its divisions develop your commercial acumen, focus on how to be productive, and how to personally develop yourself and your career.

Our graduate roles vary across Corporate, Manufacturing and Construction, and whatever your expertise, we’ll support your journey. You’ll gain technical experience in your area of expertise and have exposure to multiple areas of our business.

With a mentor on hand every step of the way, and a network of graduates across the industry, we’re setting you up for success; success shaped around your interests and broader career goals.

Visit our Graduate website and take the 360 degree virtual tour.  This is where you’ll find what graduate roles are on offer and where you can apply for our Graduate Development Programme.   Applications are now closed for our 2020 Graduate Programme.

What our programme looks like:

A Graduate Development Programme, focused on developing first class professional skills.

  • Relevant technical training and development, depending on your area of study.
  • You’ll be assigned a mentor who is a senior leader within the business.
  • You’ll have a 'buddy'.
  • You’ll have a network of graduates from across the business that you’ll regularly connect with throughout the Graduate Programmes curriculum and beyond; they’ll also be there to socialise with and to build your professional connections.
  • Whilst our Graduate Programme is a one year programme, we offer permanent full time roles to eligible candidates.

We’ll put you right at the heart of our trans-tasman operations. You’ll work alongside industry leaders and inspiring colleagues for the ultimate insight into what makes Fletcher Building tick.

Construction Summer Interns

In addition to the Graduate Development Programme, we also have a Construction Summer Internship Programme.

This involves paid work over the summer months from November to February. The programme is designed to give 2nd and 3rd year Civil Engineering university student’s invaluable experience in their area of expertise, alongside exposure to working at Fletcher Construction.

A high number of our interns progress into joining our Construction Graduate Programme after completion of their degrees.

Will it be challenging? Yes.

Will it be rewarding? Of course.

Is it the ultimate way to make your future? Absolutely.
