If you’re excited by adventure and the idea of pushing past your comfort zone, you could join a select group of graduates on our challenging and highly rewarding programme.in the Australian Group.

About Swire

The Australian Swire group is a diversified business, spanning multiple industries including cold storage and logistics, specialist bulk logistics, recycling of construction and demolition waste (into civil construction materials), asphalt production and laying, mining services, mining equipment rental and industrial property.

We are committed to the sustainable development of our businesses and we take the long-term view – in relationships with our people, our partners and customers, the communities in which we operate, and in finding new ways to reduce the resources we use. Our history has been built on the strength of our people; we place great emphasis on their development.

About the Swire Australia Program

We are committed to developing talented young managers so they can grow into highly capable, mobile and flexible leaders of our Australian businesses. We know you can learn, so we focus on making sure you get more experiences, variety, exposure to senior management, and career support, to help you reach new heights and be more than you are today.

Assignments are generalist in nature and we expect you to add value in areas which are new and unfamiliar. Our experience shows us exposure to different industries and access to senior leadership builds outstanding management skills. We’ll support you with access to a wide range of experienced professionals, and direct exposure to key decision makers, so they can pass on their expertise and skills.

This means we can provide you with responsibility and diversity of experience and broad roles so you get to see the full scope of our Australian businesses.

About you

We are looking for graduates from varied academic backgrounds (our current crop range from anthropology to law!) who are committed to their development and flexible and driven enough to seize opportunities.

To be considered for the graduate program, you will need to possess the following:

  • A recent university degree, preferably with Honours. All disciplines welcome.
  • Strong leadership potential and demonstrated ability to work in a team
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • Strong analytical and problem solving abilities
  • A high degree of self-motivation
  • Flexibility and willingness to relocate for work within Australia

You’ll be expected to step up from day one, take responsibility and thrive on unexpected challenges in unfamiliar surroundings. Such an opportunity is not for everyone, but if you’re interested in a diverse general management career and excited by the thought of rotations in all areas of Australia, then you may be the right person for us and we might be the right place for you.

Together we can help you to get more, be more and go further than the average graduate.
