Empowering New Talent for Success

We recently convened our Annual New Starter Induction Day at the Women’s College of Sydney University. This event serves as a pivotal platform for our people from across Australia to gather, exchange insights and delve into our organisational culture, understanding what sets us apart and fuels our success.

The day featured an array of informative sessions, including workshops that provided participants with a taste of the diverse learning opportunities available with us, including modules from our Graduate Development Program running simultaneously to the main event.

Graduate Development Program Overview

Our Graduate Development Program is designed to accommodate individuals at various stages of their professional journey whilst keeping flexibility at the forefront, hence the program can start anytime.

  1. Three Stages: The program contains three phases, which collectively is equivalent to three years, however, we recognise that learning is personal and therefore timelines can vary.
  2. Diverse Course Offerings: With over 14 courses, our program covers a wide range of topics. Elective courses allow graduates to align their learning with specific interests and areas of study. Examples of our courses include:
    1. Soil and Rock Logging Course: A hands-on exploration of geotechnical fundamentals.
    2. 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: underpinned by the renowned Franklin Covey program.
    3. Strengths Profile Assessments: Identifying one’s key strengths and talents to feel energised, increase engagement and achieve set goals..
    4. Project Management Course: The capstone of the program equips graduates to transition successfully to leading projects, by introducing them to the fundamentals of project management.
