Hydro Tasmania: who are we?

We are proud to be Australia’s largest producer of renewable energy.

The energy we generate – across 54 dams, 30 hydropower stations and two windfarms – powers all of Tasmania. It’s also exported to mainland Australia for distribution across the National Electricity Market.

Why choose us?

It’s an exciting time in the energy sector as Australia transitions to renewables – and we are delighted to be leading the way. If you’re seeking a supportive work environment that’s both challenging and rewarding, Hydro Tasmania could be the ideal place to launch your career.

We have a long history in Tasmania through our core operations but we also benefit from national and international perspectives. Our retail arm Momentum Energy supplies energy to customers on mainland Australia, and our power and water consulting business Entura supports client projects across the globe.

Our employees rate the work-life balance as the best aspect of working for us. You can expect flexible hours that leave plenty of time to enjoy the laid-back Tasmanian lifestyle.

We are big believers in the importance of giving back to society. We have strong links with local non-profit organisations, an annual community grant program, and a corporate volunteering scheme that allows employees to use working days to attend volunteer events and activities.

What to expect from our Graduate Programs?

Our Graduate Programs take place over two or three years, depending on your specialism. The programs have been carefully designed to support different career pathways and provide you with full exposure to a range of roles within the organisation.

We offer:

  • unrivalled professional development and training
  • an annual individual training budget to invest in your skills
  • multiple opportunities to network and establish meaningful connections
  • a chance to work alongside and learn from respected industry leaders
  • the potential to rotate across a range of jobs and sites
  • starting salary of over $70,000 plus super
  • additional perks like discounted electricity bills, private health insurance and wellbeing programs.

Anything else that’s important to know?

Our program starts in February each year, initially based in Hobart.

For the 2022 intake, we are keen to hear from final year students who expect to graduate in Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Mechatronics and Renewable Engineering, Economics, Business and Finance, IT, Law and Social Sciences.

We especially welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds.

International students will be considered if they hold permanent residency or they graduated from an Australian university and hold a Temporary Graduate Visa (subclass 485) that will remain valid for the duration of the program.

Shortlisted applicants will be asked to complete an online video assessment before attending an assessment day that involves an introduction to the company, and a group activity.  The final stage of the process will include a one-on-one interview as well as reference and/or police checks and a pre-employment medical.

The total process will take no longer than six weeks.

Recruitment Process

In the first instance, you'll be asked to submit an application including a cover letter addressing any selection criteria.
Following initial shortlisting, you will be asked to complete a video assessment.
After reviewing the video interviews, you may be invited to attend an assessment centre (either virtually or in person). This is a great opportunity for you learn more about Hydro Tasmania and the program. 
Finally, preferred candidates will have a one-on-one interview with the hiring manager/s.
As expected, shortlisting will occur through the stages.

The biggest danger in society is the ‘you wouldn’t understand’ factor, it’s important to acknowledge that if someone isn’t an expert that doesn’t mean they can’t understand something if they want to.
