The Fujitsu story

Fujitsu (one of the largest IT companies, after IBM and Hewlett Packard) was established in 1935. 

Fujitsu started to produce many of Japan’s phones, as well as the accompanying telecommunications infrastructure. But it was Fujitsu’s creation of Japan’s first computer (the FACOM 100) in 1953 that captured the world’s attention.  Since that time, Fujitsu has grown to have its fingers in many pies. Such as cloud computing, desktop and laptop computers, mainframe computers, supercomputers, microelectronics, scanners, servers, and software. 

Fujitsu’s is one of the largest ICT companies operating in this part of the world. With a heritage originating from telecommunications and some of the world's earliest computers, Fujitsu now has a strong focus on becoming a digital transformation partner for its customers. In Australia, Fujitsu has been operating for over 45 years and the company is recognised as a supplier of choice for many Australian local businesses and government organisations across retail, financial services, healthcare and transport.

The culture

Fujitsu is focused on creating an inclusive workplace that embraces and promotes diversity. In practice, this has meant they are promoting and hiring people for their skills and insights regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, values, beliefs, disabilities, sexual preferences and religion.

Fujitsu’s senior leaders have set out to reform the corporate culture and mindset. They have introduced career development programs for staff, made workplaces easier to navigate for disabled staff, fostered a greater understanding of LGBTI staff and instituted more flexible work practices. 

Social contribution

Fujitsu is a signatory to the UN Global Compact's 10 principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption. Fujitsu has five priorities that it has been focusing on in the lead up to 2020. They are:

  1. Providing opportunities and security through ICT. (That is, creating ICT that connects the all the world’s people and allows them to “pursue their dreams”.)
  2. Protecting the global environment. (By reducing Fujitsu’s environmental footprint and producing ICT that can address environmental challenges.)
  3. Embracing diversity and inclusion.
  4. Developing human resources for their contribution to society and the planet. (That is, developing employees so they can become “pioneers in contributing to the advancement of society”.)
  5. Communicating and collaborating with stakeholders

The recruitment process

While you need to have completed a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in the last two years, depending on the role, you do not need specified degrees. 

More than just technical skills and having all the answers upfront, they care about problem-solving skills, innovative thinking and a willingness to learn and do. 

How to apply:
The recruitment process starts with an online application then a virtual interview. If all that goes well, you’ll be invited to an assessment centre. If you shine there and pass the necessary police and reference checks, you’ll receive a job offer. 

Remuneration

Salaries are competitive for Graduates roles. Staff can request flexible working arrangements and receive 14 weeks paid parental leave as the primary carer. There are a range of benefits. These include discounts on: Fujitsu, Apple and Microsoft products, Fitness First gym memberships, Bupa health insurance and Specsavers glasses. Staff also have access to discounted novated leases of Toyota vehicles and a ‘car plan’ that allows them to salary sacrifice “up to two vehicles or a car plus car allowance”.  

Career prospects

Fujitsu is “committed to providing learning and development opportunities to its employees”. It recently launched a Management Development Program in this region. This program “prepares attendees to become People Managers and supports them to provide a strong contribution to their teams and the broader business”. If you are interested in working overseas, Fujitsu operates in 100 different nations. And, in a business of Fujitsu’s size, there are always roles in a variety of countries that need to be filled.   

The vibe of the place

Fujitsu has sought to combine the best that Japanese and Western corporations have to offer. In recent times it has enthusiastically embraced diversity, “fair and equal access to opportunities based on merit” and a less hierarchical, conformist corporate culture. 

At the same time, Fujitsu has continued to show loyalty to its employees, encourage collaborative workplaces where staff members come together “cohesively in teams” and take a long-term view rather than obsessing about next quarter’s results.

  • Sometime projects can be demanding It's a big company and it can be tricky to navigate through all of the different teams.
  • Lack of structured internal team support - you definitely need a few things going your way to succeed Too technical - would love to see an innovative/out of the box style way of integrating staff who don't have an IT background.
  • It takes time to understand the business and I need to be patient to explore the unknown until I solve the puzzle.
