How many positions are available?
This is a great question, but a hard one to answer as it changes every year based on the needs of our business. What we do know is what pathway options are available to you:
When must I complete my degree by?
In order to be eligible for the 2022 Program intake, you will need to have completed your most recent tertiary education qualification within the last three years up to the commencement of the Program in February 2022. (I.e. graduating between 2019, 2020 and 2021).
In order to be eligible for the Program you must have completed a minimum of an undergraduate degree within this timeframe.
I'm a mature-age student who's just graduated. Can I apply?
Of course, you can! We would welcome your application once you have competed your degree by the end of 2020.
What are the visa requirements for international students wanting to apply to our Program?
International Students who have a valid visa that enables them to work in Australia without any work restrictions are eligible to apply.
Can I apply again if I was unsuccessful last year?
Absolutely! Our Program is open to candidates who have completed their studies up to three years ago.
I'm still waiting for my final university results; can I still apply?
Yes, you can still apply for the Program as long as you can provide us with your grade point average. We prefer official university transcripts, but we accept unofficial ones in the meantime.
Please keep this in mind if you progress to the interview stage, as we’ll ask you for your most up to date transcripts.
When does the Program start?
The Graduate Program runs for 13 months, with includes a month-long induction at the commencement, beginning in February 2022. During this 13-month period you will do two rotations across our business within your chosen pathway.
