What insiders say about…
I am involved in the testing of user applications which act as interfaces to the markets operated by AEMO.
The culture in AEMO is very welcoming. There is a great support network that is build up around graduates - we have a grad buddy (from another grad cohort), a manager, a mentor, the rest of the grad cohort and wider AEMO colleagues. AEMO is a geographically diverse organisation, however special effort is made by management to ensure that everyone in the team feels connected. For example, through visits to other sites, video conferencing, lunch meetings and phone conversations. On a social level, I connect regularly with other graduates in my state (and in other states when I am on-site) and also am involved with AEMO's social club and ad-hoc after work drinks.
The interview and assessment process for the graduate program was quite lengthy. There were three assessments before the interview: one basic online behaviour tests, one technical question assessment, and finally the assessment centre.
Employees want real-life examples of when you've worked in a team and with others. Examples from work, uni and extracurricular activities are good.
Very flexible hours, no expectation of much unpaid overtime.
AEMO pays an above-market rate for graduates in the industry. The bonus scheme is calculated fairly and is applied to everyone in the organisation based on a company-wide score.
Each of my managers have been incredible mentors and continue to take an interest in my career once I leave their area.
A lot of training for different aspects of the markets which AEMO operates - these can be for both internal and external stakeholders/employees. These have greatly assisted in my learning and development with regard to Australia's energy industry.
Made permanent within the graduate rotations, so can be assured have an analyst position at the end. Then its up to you.
It doesn't appear as though diversity is an issue in the recruitment process. We have a great, diverse bunch of colleagues, all of whom have integrated well within the company and its culture.
Has a good sustainability program and offers good volunteer leave. I have taken paid leave to volunteer
Nice offices will all ease of access to amenities. Layout may be a little outdated but easy to use.
We have sustainability champions on every site that are committed to increasing awareness of our company's carbon footprint and introducing sustainable programs to AEMO.Join us to bookmark!
