About the opportunity
Our newly designed Finance Graduate Program builds on the experience gained from our successful program for legal graduates. The program promotes and supports an integrated approach to learning, where graduates build capability through a range of "formal" and "informal" learning experiences, ranging from day-to-day work activities, through to the more traditional face-to-face learning programs. We will provide a CA/CPA qualified mentor to support you through your professional accounting qualification.
Graduates will gain on the job experience by rotating through the different teams within our Finance Group to provide a strong understanding of the workings of a Finance group. This will include a number of shorter rotations in the operational areas of the Finance group and more substantial exposure to the Financial and Management accounting teams.
