The Fujitsu story

Fujitsu is one of the world’s largest Information and Communications Technology (ICT) companies, with approximately 156,000 employees in more than 100 locations, serving 10 million customers globally. Fujitsu use experience and the power of ICT to shape the future of society with its customers.

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 then, Fujitsu has grown to offer a full range of technology products, solutions and services. Fujitsu now has a strong focus on becoming a digital transformation partner for its customers.

Across Australia and New Zealand, Fujitsu is recognised as a supplier of choice for many local businesses and government organisations across retail, financial services, healthcare and transport.

Fujitsu’s mission:

Through a constant pursuit of innovation, Fujitsu aims to contribute to the creation of a networked society that is rewarding and secure, bringing about a prosperous future that fulfils the dreams of people throughout the world.

The culture

Fujitsu is committed to being a responsible business that reflects the diversity of the world and building an inclusive culture where everyone can be completely themselves. Fujitsu believes that our differences make us stronger and enable us to produce better and more innovative work. 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 culture is underpinned by their ‘Oceania 7’ Values; Accountability, Focus on the Customer, Learning, Purposeful, Respect, Simplicity and Trust. These values shape the way Fujitsu employees behave towards each other and their customers.

Social & Environmental Responsibility

Fujitsu is a signatory to the UN Global Compact's 10 principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption. Five of their priorities of focus are:

  1. Providing opportunities and security through ICT. (That is, creating ICT that connects 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

For Fujitsu, being a responsible business means investing in a diverse, safe, and engaged workforce; adding value to the communities in which they work; ensuring high ethical standards in our value chain, and being a leader in sustainability. By being open about progress, goals and challenges, Fujitsu seeks to invite dialogue and foster trust with stakeholders.

This report reflects Fujitsu’s continuing efforts to run the business responsibly and make a positive impact upon society, incorporating making an impact towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals. As one of the largest ICT companies in the region, Fujitsu has a big role to play to co-create a trusted, sustainable future with their community and customers.

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, Fujitsu care about problem-solving skills, innovative thinking and a willingness to learn and do. Applications typically open from March to July. Check out the website to apply!

Remuneration

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”. The Management Development 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. It embraces diversity and “fair and equal access to opportunities based on merit” rather than a 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.   

The Graduate community is tight-knit, social and friendly. At the start of the Program Graduates are assigned a buddy from the Graduate Alumni Community to provide additional support and act as a sounding board for any questions. There are also a number of social clubs, initiatives and activities formed by employees to assist with strengthening and expanding professional networks.

From the Employer:

"Our Graduate Program aims to build a pipeline of talent to lead Fujitsu in the future. Through our Program, we aim to increase diversity in our workforce by bringing young people into the organisation. Our goal is to bring in digital natives who can actively shape and drive our digital agenda. By bringing new ideas and perspectives into Fujitsu to help enhance Fujitsu’s reputation with customers and society, as a responsible employer of young people.
