The important information

Flexible 12 to 24-month program with a maximum of four rotations

This is a flexible program consisting of a maximum of four 6-month rotations across the various teams that make up our tech function. To help guide your start with us, we connect with you to understand your strengths and where you would like to grow. We use this to help guide your initial rotation in our tech function, from there, your rotations, journey, and the opportunities you decide to tackle are entirely up to you! Naturally, we provide support and guidance as you navigate your own path.

Ultimately, we provide you the flexibility after rotation one to shape the remaining 18 months on program to suit your ambitions. We will also support your transition to a permanent role and career with our tech teams once you find a role and team you love.

What our graduates have to say

“I studied IT and Innovation at UTS, and on the weekends I love taking some time out to go to the gym, experiment in the kitchen, and hang out with my friends and family. 

I may be a technology Grad but I also adore the creative arts and abstract ways of thinking!

I always knew I wanted to land in the technology field, having studied IT, I just wasn’t sure where specifically. This program allows me to experience four different rotations all over technology and I get a feel for what I might like, regardless of my previous experience or prior knowledge. Essentially, I’m in the driver’s seat in terms of my future career in Technology.” 

Since rolling off the program…

“I now work in Agile Transformation as part of the Transformation & Portfolio Office – Customer Services and Technology.

As an Engineer in an Agile-based role I get a taste of everything. This can include PowerBI reporting and data analysis, curating learning materials and session plans, facilitating sessions, support and coaching, and much more.

My current role was not something I had really considered before joining the team as a grad. Whereas the role I had always been interested in didn’t end up fitting me very well.

As a grad in other areas of tech, I learned a lot about the business, different ways of working, and gained a lot of confidence in my work and communication.”
