You will participate in tailored placements across teams and sites across Australia, where you will be exposed to many aspects of the business. 

These placements and project work may include but not be limited to:

You will receive support, development, and guidance from a range of managers and mentors at CMTP. You will build your technical skills through on the job learning and you will develop a dedicated learning & development plan with your manager and mentors, which will assist you to strengthen commercial acumen, as well as aligning you with CMTP business objectives, values, and behaviours.
