Australian National University
Jack studied Law and Commerce at Australian National University
After completing my undergraduate degrees in Law and Commerce at the Australian National University, I commenced in the ACCC’s Graduate Program in 2014. I was eager to learn more about the extensive responsibilities of the ACCC as a Commonwealth regulator, and gain experience working with different people across a variety of markets and industries.
Fortunately, the Graduate Program gave me the perfect opportunity to broaden my horizons and get a taste for a number of different business areas. During my rotations in the legal group, mergers investigations and enforcement divisions, I gained an invaluable insight into the ACCC’s significant and diverse role in promoting competition and protecting consumers in the Australian economy.
Throughout the program, I always felt that my supervisors really made an effort to involve me in interesting and challenging work, and I felt like a valued and important member of the team from day one. The ongoing training courses and supportive team environment provides everything you need to develop your skills and succeed at the ACCC. Coming from a predominantly legal background, I particularly found the economics-based courses really helpful in getting my technical skills up to scratch. Additionally, the numerous other professional development, communication and leadership skills courses really demonstrated to me the ACCC’s firm commitment to investing in and developing its people.
Above all, the ACCC Graduate Program offers the opportunity to work alongside highly motivated people in a supportive, respectful and exciting workplace.
