Graduate Programs

Westgold invite Graduates to take the step from study to the workplace in an inclusive environment supported by a wealth of knowledge from our Technical Professionals. Our programs are catered to the needs and motivational factors of the Graduate in addition to business needs within our Group.

Graduate Disciplines Include:

Vacation Students

Westgold are able to offer invaluable practical experience to Students within the listed graduate disciplines to apply theoretical knowledge in an active mining environment. With a view of drawing from the Students personal interests and motivations, Westgold aims to provide a unique learning experience that plays an integral part in directing a Graduate’s final career choice.
